Josef Michl

Josef Michl mission logo Our research group is engaged in molecular electronics in the broadest sense of the term.
  • We prepare and characterize experimentally as well as computationally elements of molecular machines.
  • We synthesize and characterize new types of molecular electron conductors, both for single-molecule studies and for bulk conduction.
  • We investigate new means of attaching molecules to metal and other surfaces.

Our group comprises organic, inorganic, physical, and theoretical chemists and combines chemical synthesis with spectroscopic and other physical measurements. Some members actually work at the J. Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry, with whose electrochemists and other scientists we have a close collaboration.
