Phonon-induced structure in the ac conductance of molecular junctions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

We theoretically examine the effect of a single phonon mode on the structure of the frequency dependence of the ac conductance of molecular junctions, in the linear response regime. The conductance is enhanced (suppressed) by the electron-phonon interaction when the chemical potential is below (above) the energy of the electronic state on the molecule.
