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 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.

The structural stability of carbon nanotori have been investigated by performing molecular-dynamics simulations. The systems considered are C-170, C-250, C-360, C-520 and C-750 tori, which have been constructed using a recently developed algorithm based on the idea of Fonseca et al. Calculations, have been realized by using an empirical many-body potential energy function for carbon. It has been found that all the nanotori considered are stable under heat treatment.
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.
Structural properties of carbon nanorods: Molecular-dynamics simulations
Erkoc, S; Malcıoğlu, Osman Barış (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.
Stability of gold clusters: molecular-dynamics simulations
Erkoç, Şakir (2000-09-01)
Structural stability and energetics of gold clusters, Au, (n = 3-555), have been investigated by molecular-dynamics simulations. An empirical model potential energy function has been used in the simulations. Stable structures of the microclusters for n = 3-13 have been determined by molecular-dynamics simulation. It has been found that gold microclusters prefer to form three-dimensional compact structures. Molecular-dynamics simulations have also been performed for spherical gold clusters generated from FCC...
