Density functional theory calculations with B3LYP exchange-correlation functional using CEP-121G basis set have been carried out in order to elucidate the structural properties and energetics of neutral zinc telluride clusters, Zn(m)Te(n)(m + n <= 6), in their ground states. The geometric structures, binding energies, vibrational frequencies and infrared intensities, Mulliken charges on atoms, HOMO and LUMO energies, the most possible dissociation channels and their corresponding energies for the clusters have been considered.

Segregation formation, thermal and electronic properties of ternary cubic CdZnTe clusters: MD simulations and DFT calculations
KURBAN, MUSTAFA; Erkoç, Şakir (Elsevier BV, 2017-04-01)
Surface and core formation, thermal and electronic properties of ternary cubic CdZnTe clusters are investigated by using classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and density functional theory (DFT.) calculations. In this work, MD simulations of the CdZnTe clusters are performed by means of LAMMPS by using bond order potential (BOP). MD simulations are carried out at different temperatures to study the segregation phenomena of Cd, Zn and Te atoms, and deviation of clusters and heat capacity. After that,...
Energetics and structural properties of carbon and oxygen doped hexagonal boron nitride sheets
Kökten, Hatice (Elsevier BV, 2011-10-01)
Energetics and structural properties of carbon and oxygen doped hexagonal boron nitride sheets have been investigated by performing density functional theory calculations. Substitutional doping model has been considered in the neutral charge state. C and O atoms replaced either B or N site in the system as impurities. A systematic study has been performed to see the effect of cell size on the calculated quantities, such as formation energy, relaxation energy, charge and bond length. It has been found that s...
Quantum chemical treatment of Li/Li+ doped defected carbon nanocapsules
Pekoez, Rengin; Erkoç, Şakir (Elsevier BV, 2008-06-01)
Structural and electronic properties of and () doped mono-vacancy defected carbon nanocapsule (CNC) systems have been investigated theoretically by performing semi-empirical self-consistent-field (SCF) molecular orbital (MO) and density functional theory (DFT) methods. Semi-empirical SCF MO method at PM3 level has been considered to optimize fully the geometry of the CNCs in their ground states. The total energies of these structures were calculated using B3LYP exchange-correlation functional in DFT metho...
A theoretical study of chemical doping and width effect on zigzag graphene nanoribbons
Pekoz, Rengin; Erkoç, Şakir (Elsevier BV, 2009-12-01)
The energetics and the electronic properties of nitrogen- and boron-doped graphene nanoribbons with zigzag edges have been investigated using density functional theory calculations. For the optimized geometry configurations, vibrational frequency analysis and wavefunction stability tests have been carried out. Different doping site optimizations for a model nanoribbon have been performed and formation energy values of these sites revealed that zigzag edgesite for both of the dopants were the most favorable ...
Does tubular structure of carbon form only from graphine sheet?
Erkoç, Şakir (Elsevier BV, 2004-10-01)
The structural and electronic properties of carbon nanotubes constructed from non-graphine sheet have been investigated qualitatively by performing semi-empirical self-consistent-field molecular orbital calculations at the level of AMI method within the RHF formulation. It has been found that these structures are stable and endothermic. From the point of view of electronic properties these structures seem to be nonconductive; their frontier molecular orbital energy differences are large, in the order of 10e...
