For the encapsulated C36 atomic configuration, axially stretched isomer lies lower in energy than the more spherical one by 0. This slight reduction in bond lengths confirms that the 14,0 carbon nanotube possesses too large diameter for significant compression of the C36 cage.
Paper V analyses the details of low energy electron transport through a magnetic barrier in a quantum wire. In our simulations carbon nanotube is constructed from carbon atoms.
Furthermore, the doping of boron can result in the charge redistribution of graphene, which can induce the charge transfer between NH3 and graphene and change the transport properties of graphene.
However, the carbon nanotube significantly stabilizes the -C36 isomer. In addition, its smaller effective diameter allows one to introduce it inside the thinner carbon nanotubes for peapod formation.
To avoid the dangling bonds hydrogen passivation of the tube edges is performed. Wrinkles give heat a jolt in pillared graphene November 3, Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University engineers.

Thus, the introduction of isolated SW defect as well as the initiation of series of SW mechanisms can be regarded as an effective method for the tuning of peapod electronic characteristics. Previously, we successfully used this model to simulate the C60s coalescence in peapods [ 3 ], to determine the SW mechanism in isolated C36 [ 2324 ] and other fullerenes [ 23 — 25 ], and so forth.
This feature is due to interference between a propagating edge state and quasibond state inside the magnetic barrier.
The Rice calculations determined reconstructed zigzags are the most stable, a desirable quality for manufacturers. Nanopore detection of single flu viruses to control outbreaks November 21, Influenza is a highly contagious respiratory disease of global importance, which causes millions of infections annually with the ever-present risk of a serious outbreak.
It is believed that the studied system or a modification of this could sooner or later be used in a competitive way in comparison with other H2 storage materials respect to the hydrogen adsorption and desorption process.
The SW defects occur during the peapods synthesis or as a result of their thermal and ultraviolet treatment [ 7 ]. Results and Discussion First of all, we optimize the geometries of isolated C36 isomers with the and the symmetries and the transition state TS dividing them see Figure 2.
In the honeycomb lattice, there are two inequivalent sites, A and B sublattices. New research by Rice physicist Boris Yakobson and his colleagues shows it should be possible to control the edge properties of graphene nanoribbons by controlling the conditions under which the nanoribbons are pulled apart.
Introduction Carbon peapods are the host-guest compounds endohedral complexes that consist of fullerenes encapsulated inside the single-walled carbon nanotubes. The results indicate that boron doping can enhance the DOS at the Fermi level and slightly enhance the physical adsorption of NH3 on the surface of graphene.
The insets show the C36 isomers with the and the symmetries and the transition state TS. It should be noted that C36 possesses a number of distinctive features compared with C Four kinds of three-dimensional structure of graphane are investigated using first-principles method.
Recent experiments confirmed that such transformation resulted in the drastic reduction of the conductivity of the whole system [ 3 ].
The results are compared with the way the H2 molecule is adsorbed upon a lonely graphene layer and inside or outside the 6,6 carbon nanotube. Graphene nanoribbons with zigzag edges have the so-called flat bands at the Fermi level [ 12 ].
On the other hand, we obtain the carbon nanotube effects on the comparative thermodynamic stability of two C36 isomers considered.
Original peapods containing only C60 fullerenes were synthesized in through the catalytic pulsed laser vaporization of graphite [ 1 ]. The result shows that the adsorption rate of the zigzag edge with H2O is much faster than that of the armchair edge with H2O.
The states corresponding the flat bands are localized at the zigzag edges, i. The results are compared with the way the H2 molecule is adsorbed upon a lonely graphene layer and inside or outside the 6,6 carbon nanotube.
This effect is important for not only the formation of flat bands but also for the validity of the tight binding model for such system. Bending light around tight corners without backscattering losses November 19, Engineers at Duke University have demonstrated a device that can direct photons of light around sharp corners with virtually no losses due to backscattering, a key property that will be needed if electronics are ever to be In a new era in material science was opened: It is found that the energy of four different structures has little difference, so the conclusion can be drawn that the four structures are likely to exist synchronously in experiments.
Theoretical prediction for reaction temperature and pressure is in good agreement with the experimental conditions. It is studied if in the interstitial space close to the middle point between the wall and the graphene layer the hydrogen molecule could be adsorbed with a greater binding energy that in any other case.
Atomistic model of carbon peapod C36 CH It has more strained cage and higher reactivity [ 16 ]. Raman spectroscopy and electronic transport measurements on individual peapod confirm this significant doping impact produced by the encapsulated C60s [ 3 ].
In paper IV we propose a spin-filter device based on resonant backscattering of edge states against a quantum anti-dot embedded in a quantum wire. Since modern electronics are all about control, semiconducting graphene and semiconducting two-dimensional materials in general are of great interest to scientists and industry working to shrink electronics for applications.
Researchers develop sustainable 'nano-raspberry' to neutralize poisonous carbon monoxide November 21, Scientists from the Nagoya Institute of Technology NITech in Japan have developed a sustainable method to neutralize carbon monoxide, the odorless poison produced by cars and home boilers.

Şahin et al Journal of Applied Physics Crossref. The graphene lattice is oriented in a way that the angle between the armchair direction (AC) and the y-axis is θ.
Hence, the angle between the zigzag direction (ZZ) and the x-axis is 30° − θ. The graphene sheet is not perfectly flat but contoured with intrinsic ripples with out-of-plane deformation from the experiment results,,,, and theoretical studies,, regardless of whether it is suspended or deposited on a substrate.
