We consider electrical transport properties of a molecular wire under the influence of time-dependent electromagnetic fields. A formalism based on Floquet theory is derived which allows one to calculate both the dc current through the molecular wire and the associated noise power. Approximations for the case of a weak wire-lead coupling are studied in detail.
