Findings from Jining University Yields New Findings on Chemical Physics (Odd-even dependence of rectifying behavior in carbon chains modified diphenyl-dimethyl molecule)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Current study results on Chemical Physics have been published. According to news reporting originating from Qufu, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Using density functional theory and non-equilibrium Green's function formalism, we investigate the effects of asymmetric nonequi-length carbon chains on the electron transport properties of diphenyl-dimethyl molecule."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Jining University, "The results show significant odd-even dependence: the rectification appears only in the hybrid nanostructure with odd carbon chain on one side and even carbon chain on the other side, while it is negligible in those with odd/even carbon chain on both sides."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The mechanism for the odd-even dependence of rectification is analyzed by the bias-dependent transmission spectra, evolution of molecular orbital levels, their spatial distributions, and projected density of states with the applied bias."
