The Gehring Lab is based at the UCLouvain and focuses on understanding the physics of mesoscopic and nano-scale functional devices. To this end we investigate functionalities like the spin-to-charge conversion in topological materials or the thermoelectric heat-to-charge conversion in single-molecule devices using cryogenic magnetotransport experiments and scanning probe microscopy.

Research highlights

"FULL" CHARACTERIZATION OF THE THERMOELECTRIC PROPERTIES OF A SINGLE MOLECULE

We report the first 'full' #thermoelectric characterization of a single molecule. Our measurements unveil the importance of electron-vibrational coupling and spin #entropy in the heat to #energy conversion, and indicate synthetic directions to achieve efficient single-molecule thermoelectric devices.
