    The problem statement, all variables and given/known data[/b]

    Which are the factors that affects and causes frank condon blockade?

    The attempt at a solution[/b]

    First of all, i understand that FCB is the suppression of current flow due to the fact that your molecules cant enter the new vibrational level compatible with the nuclear positions and momenta of the vibrational level of the molecule in the originating electronic state AS FAST AS your electron jumping from the electrode to the molecule.

    I tried reading the paper found here

    But i really need some help with understanding the factors that are causing FCB in a general case, cant digest the paper after reading it.

    Thank you guys so much~~
