Direct approach for the electron transport through molecules Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A very simple, straightforward, and easy to implement fully ab initio procedure for the determination of current-voltage characteristics in molecular junctions is presented. Application of this procedure predicts reasonably well the experimental findings for low bias voltages of a break junction experiment and can help us to characterize its geometry.
