Stretching a molecule helps it conduct

Abstract:
Chemists in Taiwan have shown that the conductance of a molecule fluctuates as it is stretched.

Many researchers believe that a molecule's conformation, or structure, influences its electron transporting properties. Chun-hsien Chen and Tien-Yau Luh of National Taiwan University and colleagues have now measured this effect experimentally ("The effect of molecular conformation on single molecule conductance: measurements of π-conjugated oligoaryls by STM break junction").
