dc.description.abstract We use scanning tunneling microscopy to establish controlled contacts to single molecules of endohedrally doped Ce(2)@C(80) fullerenes with C(60) as a reference. The stability of the experimental setup allows for the determination of the conductance of Ce(2)@C(80) relative to the conductance of C(60). The endohedral doping reduces the conductance of Ce(2)@C(80) by a factor of about five with respect to C(60). Ab initio calculations show that the reason for this reduced conductance is the absence of electron orbitals delocalized over the cage of Ce(2)@C(80) in the energy window of the conductance measurement.
