Handbook of Single-molecule Electronics by Kasper Moth-Poulsen

By Kasper Moth-Poulsen

Single-molecule electronics has developed as a colourful learn box over the past twenty years. The imaginative and prescient is with the intention to create digital elements on the maximum point of miniaturization―the unmarried molecule. This publication compiles and information state of the art examine with contributions from chemists, physicists, theoreticians, and engineers. It covers all facets of single-molecule electronics, from the idea via experimental realizations and the chemical synthesis of molecular elements to the implementation of molecular elements in destiny built-in circuits.

This booklet describes intimately either tested tools and up to date advances within the box, together with vibrational results, switching phenomena, quantum interference, thermal energy, and parallel meeting concepts. The authors upload extra info to the chapters than quite often present in the first literature in order that the e-book may be learn not just via experts but in addition through non-experts and scholars with an curiosity within the examine box. every one bankruptcy is observed via difficulties, and a ideas handbook can also be provided.

The form of ˇ d depends on what the internal degrees of freedom are, and we will exemplify it in a section below as an oscillator degree of freedom. Finally, this treatment allows to determine the occupation of the single level from G K (ε). 3 Recursive Green’s Function Technique In the last section, we introduced a general formalism for transport starting from a Hamiltonian with terms describing the uncoupled molecule, the leads, and coupling terms (tunneling). We showed that the strategy of computation is to eliminate the leads in favor of a molecule Green’s function that includes the effect of tunneling to the leads in terms of self-energies.
