Vibration-mediated correlation effects in the transport properties of a benzene molecule

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We theoretically analyze correlation effects on the transport properties of a benzene molecule that are mediated by interactions between the motion of the nuclei and the transmitted charge. We focus on the lowest-lying molecular vibrational mode which allows us to derive an analytic expression for the current. The results provide transparent interpretations of various features of the highly nonlinear current-voltage characteristics, which is experimentally accessible through resonant inelastic electron-tunneling spectroscopy.
