The overarching goal of this work is to understand nanometer scale junctions and electron transport through molecules in these junctions. Calculations detailing quantum interference in the electron transport through molecules, and the control of these features, show great potential for use as discrete electronic elements. Concurrent work on the fabrication of an ultra high vacuum scanning tunneling microscope, designed to enable Raman spectroscopy, is presented.(180) Emberly, E. G.; George, K.
