    The "Molecular Nanostructures and Devices" group, at the Institute for Electronics, Micro-electronics and Nanotechnology  (IEMN-CNRS) is interested in the physics of organic nanostructures. We study the electronic properties and charge transport properties of various organic nanostructures  such as self-assembled monolayers, small ensemble of molecules, supramolecular assembly of molecules, macromolecules... These systems are of a great interest for molecular-scale electronics. Our research also concerns the study of organic semiconductors and  organic electronics.
