We investigate the torsional vibrations in biphenyl-like molecular junctions and transport properties in the presence of an external THz field. Ab initio calculations including external electric fields show that the torsional angle φ of a thiolated biphenyl junction exhibits virtually no response. However, if functional groups are added to the molecule, creating a dipole moment in each of the ...
