In this paper, nanoscale organic two-terminal devices, based on evaporated films of a perylene diimide derivative (PDI8-CN2) and with channel lengths ranging from 1 μm down to 50 nm, have been fabricated by using Focused Ion Beam technique. Devices have been characterized in terms of I–V curves at several temperatures and perylene diimide nanochannels displayed a measurable electrical conduction even at temperatures lower than 50 K. The recorded experimental data stressed the electrical response according to the channel size. Investigation of nanoscale devices allowed us to study the nature of the charge injection and to estimate the energy barrier and the factors influencing it.
