An experimental protocol which allows to perform conductance spectroscopy on organic molecules at low temperatures (T approximate to 30 K) has been developed. This extends the method of mechanically controlled break junctions which has recently demonstrated to be suitable to contact single molecules at room temperature. The conductance data obtained at low T with a conjugated sample molecule show a highly improved data quality with a higher stability, narrower linewidth, and substantially reduced noise. Thus, the comparability of experimental data with other measurements as well as with theoretical simulations is considerably improved. (C) 2003 American Institute of Physics.
