Article Preview

By applying nonequilibrium Green’s function formalism combined first-principles density functional theory, we investigate the electronic transport properties of the azobenzene -based optical molecular switch with different substituents. Theoretical results show that the donor/acceptor substituent plays an important role in the electronic transport of molecular devices. The switching performance can be improved to some extent through suitable donor and acceptor substituents.
