An algorithm for constructing various kinds of nanojunctions using zig-zag and armchair nanotubes

Tasci, Emre
Erkoç, Şakir
A method for generating various forms of junctions involving armchair and zig-zag nanotubes, firstly introduced by Zsoldos et al., is developed to cover all types of armchair and zig-zag nanotubes in a systematical way. This method can also be used to produce nanogears and toothed canals. The method is explained and flowcharts are included to aid in programming into a code.


Evaluation of the radiative recombination mechanism in Si nanocrystals embedded in silica matrix
Righini, Marcofabio; Gnoli, Andrea; Razzari, Luca; Serincan, Ugur; Turan, Raşit (American Scientific Publishers, 2008-02-01)
We report measurements of the temperature dependence of photoluminescence (PQ life-time and efficiency of Si nanocrystals (Si-Nc) embedded in silica matrix. We use a practical technique based on lock-in acquisition that allows us to simultaneously evaluate, at each emission-energy, intensity and decay-time of the detected signal. Samples are prepared by Silicon-ion implantation in a SiO2 layer followed by thermal annealing. The implantation dose of Si ions ranges between 2 x 10(16) cm(-2) and 2 x 10(17) cm(...
The electronic structure of capped and uncapped CdS nanoparticles
Ercan, Ilke; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay (American Scientific Publishers, 2008-02-01)
The electronic structure of spherical CdmSn nanoparticles having zinc-blende symmetry and the diameters of up to around 3 nm has been studied by Hartree-Fock theory to find out the effect of the cluster size on the optical energy gap between HOMO and LUMO. The effect of encapsulation on the electronic structure has been also investigated for CdS4 and Cd13S4 clusters embedded in SiO2 matrix and sodalite cage by Hartree-Fock theory. It was found that the energy gap of CdS nanoparticles can be regulated by bot...
Functionality of C(4,4) carbon nanotube as molecular detector
Malcıoğlu, Osman Barış (American Scientific Publishers, 2008-02-01)
Alterations in the electronic transport properties of C(4,4) single walled carbon nanotube when an agent is introduced to the outer surface are investigated theoretically. Several chemical agents in this context are investigated. The calculations are performed in two steps: First an optimized geometry for the functionalized carbon nanotube is obtained using semi-empirical calculations at the PM3 level, and then the transport relations are obtained using non equilibrium green-function approach. Gaussian and ...
Modeling a suspended nanotube oscillator
Toffoli, Hande; Arias, TA (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2005-03-01)
We present a general study of oscillations in suspended one-dimensional elastic systems clamped at each end, exploring a wide range of slack (excess length) and downward external forces. Our results apply directly to recent experiments in nanotube and silicon nanowire oscillators. We find the behavior to simplify in three well-defined regimes which we present in a dimensionless phase diagram. The frequencies of vibration of such systems are found to be extremely sensitive to slack.
A fully implicit finite element method for bidomain models of cardiac electrophysiology
Dal, Hüsnü; Göktepe, Serdar (Informa UK Limited, 2012-01-01)
This work introduces a novel, unconditionally stable and fully coupled finite element method for the bidomain system of equations of cardiac electrophysiology. The transmembrane potential phi(i) - phi(e) and the extracellular potential phi(e) are treated as independent variables. To this end, the respective reaction-diffusion equations are recast into weak forms via a conventional isoparametric Galerkin approach. The resultant nonlinear set of residual equations is consistently linearised. The method result...
