Quantum Transport in Bridge Systems
We study electron transport properties of some molecular wires and a unconventional disordered thin film within the tight-binding framework using Green's function technique. We show that electron transport is significantly affected by quantum interference of electronic wave functions, molecule-to-electrode coupling strengths, length of the molecular wire and disorder strength. Our model calculations provide a physical insight to the behavior of electron conduction across a bridge system.
