Abstract

A Floquet theory approach for calculations of electron transport through a tight binding model of a field-driven molecular wire was presented. Current flow in the wire was calculated using a nondissipative one-electron tight binding model of the quantum dynamics. Results showed that the time-dependent Hamiltonian in case of field-driven analog could be mapped to a time-independent Hamiltonian in extended state space and with modified interstate couplings.
