Abstract: Attractive electron correlations due to an electron-vibron interaction can overcome the direct Coulomb repulsion of polarons in deformable molecular quantum dots (MQDs). If it happens, a switching appears in the I-V characteristics of the degenerate nonadiabatic molecular bridges weakly coupled with electrodes providing a route to ultrafast “memristors” (memory resistors) as the basis for future oscillators, amplifiers and other important circuit elements. Here, we extend our theory of polaronic memristors to adiabatic MQDs strongly coupled with leads to show that the degeneracy of MQD (or multilevel energy structure) along with the polaron-polaron attraction is a vital ingredient of its switching behavior in the strong-coupling regime as well.
