Interaction of a CO molecule with a Pt monoatomic chain : the top geometry


Recent experiments showed that the conductance of Pt nanocontacts and nanowires is measurably reduced by adsorption of CO. We present DFT calculations of the electronic structure and ballistic conductance of a Pt monoatomic chain and a CO molecule adsorbed in an on-top position. We find that the main electronic molecule-chain interaction occurs via the 5… (More)
