Cross-conjugated molecules are known to exhibit destructive quantum interference, a property that has recently received considerable attention in single-molecule electronics. Destructive quantum interference can be understood as an antiresonance in the elastic transmission near the Fermi energy and leading to suppressed levels of elastic current. In most(More)
The 2,6,10-tris(dialkylamino)trioxatriangulenium dyes (ATOTA(+)) are highly stabilised cationic chromophores with D(3h) symmetry. The symmetry gives rise to a degeneracy of the main electronic transition. In low polarity solvents significant splitting of this degenerate transition is observed and assigned to ion pair formation. Ion pairing of the(More)
Destructive quantum interference in single molecule electronics is an intriguing phenomenon; however, distinguishing quantum interference effects from generically low transmission is not trivial. In this paper, we discuss how quantum interference effects in the transmission lead to either low current or a particular line shape in current-voltage curves,(More)
Triarylmethylium cations with the three rings linked by two bridging groups constitute a special class of [4]heterohelicenium dyes that combine high configurational stability with the optical properties of classic dye compounds. The racemization barriers and electronic circular dichroism of seven [4]heterohelicenium analogues are investigated with density(More)
Electronic circular dichroism in the three helicenium analogues dimethoxyquinacridinium (DMQA(+)), dimethoxychromenoacridinium (DMCA(+)), and dimethoxychromenoxanthenium (DMCX(+)) were investigated in vacuum with time-dependent density functional theory methods using the CAM-B3LYP functional with the basis set 6-311++G**. The systems were thoroughly studied(More)
Electronic devices composed of single molecules constitute the ultimate limit in the continued downscaling of electronic components. A key challenge for single-molecule electronics is to control the temperature of these junctions. Controlling heating and cooling effects in individual vibrational modes can, in principle, be utilized to increase stability of(More)
