Negative differential resistance and hysteresis through an organometallic molecule from molecular-level crossing.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Analogous to a quantum double-dot system, diblock structured molecules could also show negative differential resistance (NDR). Using combined density functional theory and nonequilibrium Green function technique, we show that molecular-level crossing in a molecular double-dot system containing cobaltocene and ferrocene leads to NDR and hysteresis.
