Title:
Role of thermal vibrations in molecular wire conduction 
Abstract:
Abstract  In the present work we investigate the influence of molecular vibrations on the tunneling of electrons through a molecule sandwiched between two metal contacts. The study is confined to the elastic scattering only, but beyond the harmonic approximation. The problem is tackled both from a classical and a quantum-mechanical point of view. The classical approach consists in the computation of the time-dependent current fluctuations along the step of a molecular-dynamics (MD)...    »
