Abstract

We have used the Breit-Wigner resonance formula to model a class of molecular electronics devices with the aim to establish an abstract model for a molecular electronic device that can be used in a general cross bar architecture of future nanoelectronic systems. We show that the molecular I-V curves can be characterized by a very small number of variables including the couplings between the contact and leads.
