Abstract

To explore the designing principles for the quantum interference effect transistors, a series of simulations are carried out on a 2,5-linked perylene molecular junction composed of two subsystems connected via destructive quantum interference. Simulation results suggest that the overall conductance of a large π-conjugated system is determined by its subsystem connected directly to the electrodes. A Büttiker probe can be treated as a resistor, and to first-order approximation, its effect is found equivalent to severing its surrounding bonds. These findings greatly simplify the design of molecular quantum interference effect transistors.
