  • Nirmalraj, Peter N.; Thompson, Damien; Riel, Heike E. (Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
    The drive towards organic computing is gaining momentum. Interestingly, the building blocks for such architectures is based on molecular ensembles extending from nucleic acids to synthetic molecules. Advancement in this ...
  • Wasserberg, Dorothee; Cabanas-Danés, Jordi; Prangsma, Jord; O'Mahony, Shane; Cazade, Pierre-André; Tromp, Eldrich; Blum, Christian; Thompson, Damien; Huskens, Jurriaan; Subramaniam, Vinod; Jonkheijm, Pascal (American Chemical Society, 2017)
    We report oriented immobilization of proteins using the standard hexahistidine (His6)-Ni2+:NTA (nitrilotriacetic acid) methodology, which we systematically tuned to give control of surface coverage. Fluorescence microscopy ...
  • Yuan, Li; Nerngchamnong, Nisachol; Cao, Liang; Hamoudi, Hicham; del Barco, Enrique; Roemer, Max; Sriramula, Ravi K.; Thompson, Damien; Nijhui, Christian A. (Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
    A challenge in molecular electronics is to control the strength of the molecule–electrode coupling to optimize device performance. Here we show that non-covalent contacts between the active molecular component (in this ...
  • Nirmalraj, Peter N.; La Rosa, Andrea; Thompson, Damien; Sousa, Marilyne; Martin, Nazario; Gotsmann, Bernd; Riel, Heike E. (Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
    Predicting the electronic framework of an organic molecule under practical conditions is essential if the molecules are to be wired in a realistic circuit. This demands a clear description of the molecular energy levels ...
  • Nirmalraj, Peter N.; Thodkar, Kishan; Guerin, Sarah; Calame, Michel; Thompson, Damien (Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
    Wrinkles are a unique class of surface corrugations present over diverse length scales from Kinneyia-type wrinkles in Archean-era sedimentary fossils to nanoscopic crinkling in two-dimensional crystals. Lately, the role ...
  • Gunnoo, Melissabye; Cazade, Pierre-André; Bayer, Edward A.; Thompson, Damien (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018)
    The cellulosome provides a fully worked out example of evolved radical nanotechnology. Improved understanding, and first steps toward re-engineering this biological nanomachine, is providing design rules for the formulation ...
  • Chwastyk, Mateusz; Vera, Andrés M.; Galera-Prat, Albert; Gunnoo, Melissabye; Thompson, Damien; Carrión-Vázquez, Mariano; Cieplak, Marek (AIP Publishing, 2017)
    We combine experimental and theoretical methods to assess the effect of a set of point mutations on c7A, a highly mechanostable type I cohesin module from scaffoldin CipA from Clostridium thermocellum. We propose a novel ...
  • Guerin, Sarah; Tofail, Syed A.M.; Thompson, Damien (Springer, 2019)
    Research on the piezoelectric response of biomolecules has intensified following demonstration of open circuit voltages of over 20 V in biopiezoelectric generators. Organic piezoelectric nanotubes, fibers, and micro-islands ...
  • Zeglinski, Jacek; Kuhs, Manuel; Devi, Renuka K.; Khamar, Dikshitkumar; Hegarty, Avril C.; Thompson, Damien; Rasmuson, Åke C. (American Chemical Society, 2019)
    Induction time experiments, spectroscopic and calorimetric analysis, and molecular modelling were used to probe the influence of solvent on the crystal nucleation of fenoxycarb (FC), a medium-sized, flexible organic ...
  • Guerin, Sarah; O'Donnell, Joseph; Haq, Ehtsham U.; McKeown, Cian; Silien, Christophe; Rhen, Fernando M.F.; Soulimane, Tewfik; Tofail, Syed A.M.; Thompson, Damien (American Physical Society, 2019)
    Single crystal L-amino acids can exhibit technologically useful piezoelectric and nonlinear optical properties. Here we predict, using density functional theory, the piezoelectric charge and strain and voltage tensors of ...
  • Singh, Raghvendra Pratap; Hidalgo, Tania; Cazade, Pierre-André; Darcy, Raphael; Cronin, Michael; Dorin, Irina; O'Driscoll, Caitrionia M.; Thompson, Damien (American Chemical Society, 2019)
    Functionalized cyclodextrin molecules assemble into a wide variety of superstructures in solution, which are of interest for drug delivery and other nanomaterial and biomaterial applications. Here we use a combined simulation ...
  • Garrigues, Alvar R.; Yuan, Li; Wang, Lejia; Mucciolo, Eduardo R.; Thompson, Damien; del Barco, Enrique; Nijhuis, Christian A. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
    We present a theoretical analysis aimed at understanding electrical conduction in molecular tunnel junctions. We focus on discussing the validity of coherent versus incoherent theoretical formulations for single-level ...
  • Nirmalraj, Peter; Lehner, Roman; Thompson, Damien; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara; Mayer, Michael (Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
    Surface contamination and the formation of water bridge at the nanoscopic contact between an atomic force microscope tip and cell surface limits the maximum achievable spatial resolution on cells under ambient conditions. ...
  • Cao, Liang; Yuan, Li; Yang, Ming; Nerngchamnong, Nisachol; Thompson, Damien; Yu, Xiaojiang; Qi, Dong-Chen; Nijhuis, Christian A. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019)
    Understanding the influence of structural properties on the electronic structure will pave the way for optimization of charge transport properties of SAM devices. In this study, we systematically investigate the supramolecular ...
  • O'Mahony, Shane (University of Limerick, 2016)
    The study of protein adsorption on surfaces is becoming an increasingly important topic for research since it plays a crucial role in a variety of biomedical and biotechnological applications, biomaterials and cell biology ...
