Abstract:

Electron transport characteristics are investigated through some molecular chains attached with two non-superconducting electrodes by the use of Green's function method. Here we do parametric calculations based on the tight-binding formulation to characterize the electron transport through such bridge systems. The transport properties are significantly influenced by (a) the length of the molecular chain and (b) the molecule-to-electrodes coupling strength and here we focus our results in these aspects. In this context we also discuss the steady state current fluctuations, so-called shot noise, which is a consequence of the quantization of charge and is not directly available through conductance measurements.
