Abstract

We describe a theory of coulomb blockade of tunneling through molecular-assembled metallic nanoparticles based on the Non-equilibrium Green's function method. We apply the theory to study current transport through a single metallic nanoparticle connected to the leads through two molecular bridges with arbitrary metal-molecule coupling and electron-molecular vibration coupling. We present model calculations of the current-voltage characteristics.
