El ADN ha presentado a través de experimentos una gran variabilidad en términos de sus características electrónicas. Han demostrado que puede adquirir el comportamiento de un conductor, semiconductor o aislante, lo que lo convierte en un buen candidato para replicar en dispositivos electrónicos a escala mesoscópica. En el presente trabajo, el coeficiente de transmisión cuántica se calcula para cadenas de ADN de varias longitudes con el uso del procedimiento de diezmado y renormalización, dentro de la aproximación de unión estrecha y la teoría de dispersión de Lippmann-Schwinger. Se obtuvieron perfiles de transmisión de energía, lo que ayudó a inferir las propiedades de transporte electrónico del sistema. Además, también se calculó la relación corriente-voltaje para una cadena de 30 pares, y se comparó con los resultados experimentales de Porath et al. Los resultados muestran las características de los semiconductores de la molécula, y un parecido con el trabajo de Porath, mostrando la calidad del procedimiento y el modelo utilizado. 2019-09-30 2021-06-03T03:52:28Z 2021-06-03T03:52:28Z info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion Research article Artículo de investigación https://recit.uabc.mx/index.php/revista/article/view/2on6 10.37636/recit.v23118123 https://repositorioinstitucional.uabc.mx/handle/20.500.12930/7000 #PLACEHOLDER_PARENT_METADATA_VALUE# #PLACEHOLDER_PARENT_METADATA_VALUE# #PLACEHOLDER_PARENT_METADATA_VALUE# https://recit.uabc.mx/index.php/revista/article/view/2on6/73 https://recit.uabc.mx/index.php/revista/article/view/2on6/html https://recit.uabc.mx/index.php/revista/article/view/2on6/OCM5 none application/pdf text/html application/xml Universidad Autónoma de Baja California REVISTA DE CIENCIAS TECNOLÓGICAS; Vol. 2 No. 3 (2019); 118-123 REVISTA DE CIENCIAS TECNOLÓGICAS; Vol. 2 Núm. 3 (2019); 118-123 2594-1925
