Molecular Conductors: Paradigms and Possibilities

Authors: A.W. Ghosh, M. Paulsson and S. Datta

Affilation: Purdue University, United States

Pages: 302 - 303

Keywords: molecular conductors, current-voltage characteristics

The purpose of this talk is to present simple models (whose parameters are extracted from first-principles theory) that capture the basic physics of molecular conduction and provide intuitive explanations for a number of features in the observed current-voltage (I-V) characteristics. These intuitive models can be used to guide our search for novel molecular conductors.
