Sorry, I made a mistake in my previous email
I wrote the correction of the previous email below:

I did not calculate the conductance and obtained the G-E diagram using the transmission method introduced in the Green function class.
Another method introduced in this class is conductance_matrix (),
which relates the current vector to the voltage vector.
Can I use this method and get to the I-V diagram?
I also want to check the temperature parameter in this system and see the device's behavior under different temperatures.

thanks
Leo

dear Leo,

If you have calculated the conductance G(E) of a 2 terminal device,
the current I at finite voltage V is given by

I = Integral dE  G(E) [ f(E-mu_L) - f(E-mu_R) ]
where mu_L and mu_R are the chemical potential of the two electrodes, f(E) is
the Fermi function. mu_L - mu_R = eV where V is the voltage drop across the devices.

Beware that this equation assumes a NON INTERACTING system and can lead to physically wrong results.
(It neglects the electrostatic which becomes almost always relevant at finite bias).

Best regards,
Xavier
