The development of novel nanoelectronic components, e.g. semiconductor nanowires, single organic molecules or magnetic nanoparticles, aims at the creation of electronic circuits at the smallest possible length scale. A first prerequisite for the construction of such electronic components is the formation of a reliable, electrical contact to the electrically active parts and their integration into larger networks. This can be achieved either by self organization or by novel lithography methods. Reliable circuits can only be built if effects arising from transport through individual nanostructures as well as collective effects caused by the integration of the nanostructures into larger networks are well understood and controlled. This tutorial will provide an overview on the experimental realization of the contacts, modeling of the systems, and possible schemes for the development of larger circuits. The introductory talks in this tutorial will be presented by members and collaborators of the International Helmholtz Research School NanoNet, which deals with the development of nanoelectronic circuits.
