Electric-field assisted assembly has been used to place rod-shaped metal nanowires containing 4-([2-nitro-4-(phenylethynyl)phenyl]ethynyl)benzenethiol molecules onto lithographically defined metal pads. In these systems the current-voltage characteristics exhibited negative differential resistance at room temperature with on-off peak-to-valley ratios of 1.80 to 2.21.
