We have investigated the electronic properties of a C60 molecule in between carbon nanotube leads. This problem has been tackled within a quantum chemical treatment utilizing a density functional theory-based LCAO approach combined with the Landauer formalism. Owing to low-dimensionality, electron transport is very sensitive to the strength and geometry of interfacial bonds. Molecular ...
