Abstract
We carry out first-principles calculation on the transient electrical response of carbon
nanotube-based conductors under time-dependent bias voltages. The dynamic admittance as well as
transient charge and potential distributions are analyzed. We find that in the linear regime, the
dynamic current response of naonotube-based conductors can be mapped onto an equivalent
classical electric circuit. The switching time of these end-on carbon nanotube devices is as short as
a few femtoseconds. This result is then generalized to other two-terminal molecular electronic
devices. We also explore the nonlinear regime by looking into the response current spectrum, which
resolves the characteristic energetic features of nanoscopic devices.
