Abstract [en]

We present first-principles studies on electron transport properties of Pd-dithiolated oligoaniline-Pd molecular junctions. It is to demonstrate the possibility of using inelastic electron tunneling spectroscopy (IETS) to identify the switching mechanism in the molecular junction. Calculations have successfully reproduced the experimentally observed conductance switching behavior and the corresponding inelastic electron tunneling spectra. It is shown that the conductance switching is induced by conformation changes of the intercalated dithiolated oligoaniline in the junctions rather than oxidation/reduction as proposed earlier. Among three possible isomers, the low and high conductance states are related to two symmetrical structures. The possible involvement of asymmetric structure is discussed. It is revealed that chemical bonds between the terminal S atom and Pd electrodes are quite weak with relatively long bond distances.

HTML clipboardIn this thesis, dynamic effects on electron transport in molecular electronic devices are presented. Special attention is paid to the dynamics of atomic motions of bridged molecules, thermal motions of surrounding solvents, and many-body electron correlations in molecular junctions.

In the framework of single-body Green’s function, the effect of nuclear motions on electron transport in molecular junctions is introduced on the basis of Born-Oppenheimer approximation. Contributions to electron transport from electron-vibration coupling are investigated from the second derivative of current-voltage characteristics, in which each peak is corresponding to a normal mode of the vibration. The inelastic-tunneling spectrum is thus a useful tool in probing the molecular conformations in molecular junctions. By taking account of the many-body interaction between electrons in the scattering region, both time-independent and time-dependent many-body Green’s function formula based on timedependent density functional theory have been developed, in which the concept of state of the system is used to provide insight into the correlation effect on electron transport in molecular devices.

An effective approach that combines molecular dynamics simulations and first principles calculations has also been developed to study the statistical behavior of electron transport in electro-chemically gated molecular junctions. The effect of thermal motions of polar water molecules on electron transport at different temperatures has been found to be closely related to the temperature-dependent dynamical hydrogen bond network.
