Resistivity of individual molecular-assembly nanowires was characterized using the point-contact current-imaging atomic force microscope (PCI-AFM). Current images were simultaneously obtained along with topographic images, from which the mean electrical resistivity of each nanowire was deduced to be approximately 180 Ω cm, which was about two orders of magnitude lower than that measured on bulk Langmuir–Blodgett films (103–105 Ω cm).
