AbstractWe investigate the possibility of inducing nuclear dynamics in single-molecule devices via inelastic, resonance-mediated tunneling current. Our method is based on the combination of a theory of current-triggered dynamics in molecular heterojunctions and a nonequilibrium Green's function approach of computing electron transport properties. The scheme is applied to study current-induced dynamics in single-molecule Au舑C60舑Au transistors.
