dc.description.abstract The establishment of conductive graphene-molecule-graphene junction is investigated through first-principles electronic structure calculations and quantum transport calculations. The junction consists of a conjugated molecule connecting two parallel graphene sheets. The effects of molecular electronic states, structure relaxation, and molecule-graphene contact on the conductance of the junction are explored. A conductance as large as 0.38 conductance quantum is found achievable with an appropriately oriented dithiophene bridge. This work elucidates the designing principles of promising nanoelectronic devices based on conductive graphene-molecule-graphene junctions.
