New look for molecular photodiodes

Abstract:
Scientists in Japan have made a new type of molecular photodiode, whose current switches direction depending on the wavelength of the light used to excite it. Designed by Shunsaku Kimura and colleagues at Kyoto University, the device consists of two helical peptide molecules, whose dipole moments point in opposite directions. Their technique could be used to make a wide variety of molecular electronics devices on the nanoscale.
