Structural properties of carbon nanorods: Molecular-dynamics simulations

2002-03-01
The formation of carbon nanorods from various types of carbon nanotubes has been investigated by performing molecular-dynamics computer simulations. Calculations have been realized by using an empirical many-body potential energy function for carbon. It has been found that carbon nanorod formed from carbon nanotubes with different chirality is not stable even at low temperature.

Structural stability of carbon nanocapsules: Molecular-dynamics simulations
Malcıoğlu, Osman Barış; Yilmaz, A; Erkoc, S (2003-09-12)
Structural stability of empty and endohedrally doped carbon nanocapsules have been investigated by performing molecular-dynamics computer simulations. Calculations have been realized by using an empirical many-body potential energy function for carbon. It has been found that empty carbon nanocapsules are relatively more stable with respect to endohedrally doped ones against heat treatment.
From carbon nanotubes to carbon nanorods
Erkoç, Şakir (2000-09-01)
The structural properties of single and multi-wall carbon nanotubes and the formation of carbon nanorods from multi-wall carbon nanotubes have been investigated by performing molecular-dynamics computer simulations. Calculations have been realized by using an empirical many-body potential energy function for carbon. It has been found that carbon nanorod formation takes place with smallest possible multi-wall nanotubes under heat treatment. On the other hand, it has been also found that single-wall carbon na...
Stability of carbon nanotori
Yazgan, E; Tasci, E; Malcıoğlu, Osman Barış; Erkoç, Şakir (2003-09-12)
The structural stability of carbon nanotori have been investigated by performing molecular--dynamics simulations. The systems considered are C-170, C-360, C-520, and C-750 tori, which have been constructed using an algorithm developed in our laboratory based on Fonseca's idea. Calculations have been realized by using an empirical many-body potential energy function for carbon.
Structural Properties of beta-Fe2O3 Nanorods Under Strain: Molecular Dynamics Simulations
Alaei, Sholeh; Erkoç, Şakir (2014-01-01)
Structural properties of beta-Fe2O3 nanorods under uniaxial strain have been investigated by performing molecular dynamics simulations at different temperatures. Two different atomistic potential energy functions (PEFs) were used to make a comparative study. It followed from our results that the PEF used to model a given material was rather significant; different PEFs would give rise to different characteristics for the same material.
Effect of chirality on the stability of carbon nanotubes : Molecular-dynamics simulations
Erkoc, S; Malcıoğlu, Osman Barış (2001-07-01)
The effect of chirality on the structural stability of single-wall carbon nanotubes have been investigated by performing molecular-dynamics computer simulations. Calculations have been realized by using an empirical many-body potential energy function for carbon. It has been found that carbon nanotube in chiral structure is more stable under heat treatment relative to zigzag and armchair models. The diameter of the tubes is slightly enlarged under heat treatment.
