Bridging the difference in atomic structure between experiments and theoretical calculations and exploring quantum confinement effects in thin electrodes (leads) are both important issues in molecular electronics. To address these issues, we report here, by using Au-benzenedithiol-Au as a model system, systematic investigations of different models for the… CONTINUE READING
