  Using a tight-binding model and a tranfer-matrix technique, we numerically investigate the effects of the coupling strength, and the length of the molecule on the electronic transmission through a CNT/(single) molecule/CNT system. With trans-polyacetylene (trans-PA) as the molecule sandwiched between two semi-infinite carbon nanotube(CNT), we rely on Landauer formalism as the basis for studying the conductance properties of this system. Our calculations show that the conductance is sensitive to the CNT/molecule coupling and that it exponentially decreases with the increase in the length of the molecule, as expected.
