Laser pulse induced transient currents through a molecular junction are studied in the framework of a density matrix theory. By focusing on the sequential transport regime two types of lead excitation are considered. Firstly, effects of collective plasmon excitations of the leads and their resonant coupling to molecular excitations are investigated. If such a resonant coupling cannot be realized a second excitation regime would be of interest. Now, the nonequilibrium dynamics of individual lead electrons affect the transient current formation. While a resonant coupling to lead plasmon excitations induces a remarkable current enhancement nonequilibrium electron distributions in the leads determine the transient current mainly by their thermalization process. The theoretical framework described above is used to analyze time-resolved conductance measurements of molecular junctions based on Ferrocene molecules.
