Switching in molecular transport junctions: polarization response.


We discuss several proposed explanations for the switching and negative differential resistance (NDR) behavior seen in some molecular junctions. Several theoretical models are discussed, and we present results of electronic structure calculations on a series of substituted oligo(phenylene ethynylene) molecules. It is shown that a previously proposed polaron… (More)
