Paper Abstract

This paper focuses on understanding the THz-phonon mediated transport of polarons in biomolecules, with particular attention on polaron transport in DNA. In order to exploit biology-based approaches to realizing new electronic systems, it is necessary to understand the electrical transport properties and THz-phonon interactions of biomolecules that portend applications both as electrically conductive wires and as structures that facilitate the chemically-directed assembly of massively integrated ensembles of nanoscale semiconducting elements into terascale integrated networks. Special attention is given to charge transport in biomolecules using indirect-bandgap colloidal nanocrystals linked with biomolecules.
