      One of the focus areas of the NanoSYD research center at the University of Southern Denmark is organic nanostructures and their use as optoelectronic components. In their work, Kjelstrup-Hansen et al., pp. 2763, present the first results from studies of the electrical and electroluminescence properties of para-hexaphenylene (p6P) thin films and nanofibers. These have been investigated in a field-effect transistor bottom contact/bottom gate configuration. The organic transistors show p-type behavior, and AC gated devices show blue electroluminescence from both organic–metal interfaces, i.e. at two positions within the transistor channel as shown in the figure.

      In their paper on pp. 2640, J. P. Echeverry and coworkers investigate within a two-component jellium model the collective electronic excitations in a one-monolayer (1 ML) potassium covered beryllium surface. The cover figure presents the real (top) and imaginary (bottom) parts of the induced charge density generated by an external time-varying potential at the Be surface coated with one monolayer of potassium. The self-consistent calculations were performed considering both the Be and K electronic structure within a jellium model. Signatures of the K-induced, ωKm, and Be surface, ωBes, plasmons as well as an onset for the Be bulk plasmon, ωBeb, are clearly seen.

      STM/STS study of Si nanowires grown on the Ag(110) surface

      F. Ronci et al. report in their article on pp. 2716 a Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) and Spectroscopy (STS) study of Si nanoribbons grown on the Ag(110) surface. STM images (left) show that Si nanoribbons grow massively parallel along the [equation image 10] substrate direction with indeterminate length but with a well defined width which is always found to be a multiple integer of 0.8 nm, the most frequent being 1.6 nm. Such characteristics gave the authors the opportunity of simultaneously studying the electron confinement properties of nanoribbons with different width. Indeed, the differential conductance images (right) clearly reveal the presence of quantized states in both the 1.6 nm- and 0.8 nm-wide nanoribbons. In particular, the first two confined states are visible in the former case, while only the fundamental level was observed for the latter, in agreement with the simple model of the electron in a finite potential square well.
