Abstract: Using the notched wire mechanically controllable break junction technique charge transport of a single-molecule junction, containing the OPE3 molecule, is studied at room temperature. By deposition of molecules from solution between two gold leads we were able to determine the conductance of the OPE3 at (1.6±0.3)·10−4G0. The measurement speed of the LabVIEW control program for this experiment was improved by more than a factor of 7 compared to the previous version.
