Abstract

In the following, we focus on the exploration of DNA bio-molecules as prospective candidates for molecular electronic devices [1]. For the scientists devoted to the investigation of charge mobility in DNA, a no less important motivation than the strong technological drive is that DNA molecules comprise an excellent model system for charge transport in one-dimensional polymers. This most well-known polymer enables an endless number of structural manipulations in which charge transport mechanisms like hopping and tunneling may be studied in a controlled way. The DNA materials having the Semiconducting and conducting properties for their proper configuration. In this paper we describe the importance of DNA molecules as Semiconductor and Conductor by their appropriate configuration.
