Abstract

The relative importance of inelastic effects in electron tunneling through water layers was assessed. A generalization of the absorbing boundary conditions of Green's function methodology made it possible to compute first order corrections to the elastic tunneling probability. By combining this with an instantaneous normal mode representation of the short time scale nuclear dynamics of the water layer, the effect of inelastic tunneling on the water transmission properties was computed.
