Nonstationary theory of magnetic field induced current for molecular spin nanojunctionAbstract: For the study of molecular spin junctions, we take into account two types of couplings between the molecule and the metal leads: (i) electron transfer that gives rise to net current in the biased junction and (ii) energy transfer between the molecule and the leads. Using a rotating wave approximation in the Heisenberg representation, we derive a set of differential equations for the expectation values of relevant variables: electron and phonon populations and molecular polarization. A magnetic field control method to enhance the charge transfer at spin nanojunctions, which characterizes the molecule feature, is discussed. An approximate analytical solution of the resulting dynamical equation is supported by numerical solution. The magnetic control by charge transfer is described by transient pseudofermions of electrons interacting with spins. The rapid adiabatic passage of the energy between the molecule and the leads is taken into account. The current for molecular spin nanojunctions is derived.
