Abstract

We report transport measurements on a graphene–fullerene single-molecule transistor. The device architecture where a functionalized C60 binds to graphene nanoelectrodes results in strong electron–vibron coupling and weak vibron relaxation. Using a combined approach of transport spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and DFT calculations, we demonstrate center-of-mass oscillations, redox-dependent Franck–Condon blockade, and a transport regime characterized by avalanche tunnelling in a single-molecule transistor.
