Highlights with ‘Charge Transport’

All-Electric Single-Molecule Motor modeled with ADF

In the November 2010 issue of ACS Nano, Jos Seldenthuis and coworkers at the Delft University of Technology published a design for an all-electric single-molecule motor which has drawn worldwide interest. The rotating moiety of...

Recent advances in Frozen-Density Embedding: State-Selective Excitations, Charge Transfer, Spin Densities

ADF developer Johannes Neugebauer and his co-workers have showcased new methodologies within the Frozen-Density Embedding (FDE) framework. With FDE, much larger systems can be studied than with traditional DFT. Furthermore, as densities can be localized...

BAND calculations explain break-through molecular charge transport experiment

Charge transport through single-molecule junctions is dominated by image charges. This is demonstrated and explained by a combined experimental and theoretical effort from Delft (Quantum Nanoscience and Chemical Engineering departments) and the Leiden Institute of...
