Languages of publication
Transport properties of an S=1 molecule attached to a single-wall carbon nanotube quantum dot, which is coupled to two external ferromagnetic leads, are analyzed in the sequential tunneling regime. The magnetizations of the leads are assumed to form either a parallel or an antiparallel magnetic configuration. The calculations are performed by using the real-time diagrammatic technique in the lowest order perturbation theory with respect to the tunnel coupling. It is shown that the presence of the molecule strongly affects the bias voltage dependence of the current and differential conductance in both magnetic configurations, as well as the resulting tunnel magnetoresistance. Negative (greatly enhanced) tunnel magnetoresistance is found in the case of antiferromagnetic (ferromagnetic) coupling between the nanotube and molecule.
