The properties of a molecular quantum dot system are investigated using a novel structure of vertical molecular transistor. This C60-based device can be operated in two new modes: voltage-controlled switching and gate-controlled hysteresis. A polaron-based model is used to explain the operation of the transistor and to introduce some general rules for the construction of polaronic molecular transistors.
