A recently developed theory that formulates the phenomena of inelastic transport and current-driven dynamics in molecular-scale electronics within a time-dependent scattering approach is extended to account for dissipation of the current-induced excitation through coupling to electrode phonons and electron-hole pairs. Our approach treats the electronic… CONTINUE READING
