Structural and mechanical properties of ternary CdZnTe nanowires have been investigated by performing molecular dynamics simulations using an atomistic potential. The simulation procedures are carried out as uniaxial stretching and compression at 1 K and 300 K. The results demonstrate that the mechanical properties of CdZnTe ternary nanowires show significantly a dependence on size and temperature under uniaxial stretching and compression.

Structural Properties of ZnO Nanotubes Under Uniaxial Strain: Molecular Dynamics Simulations
Kilic, Mehmet Emin; Erkoç, Şakir (2013-10-01)
Structural properties of zinc oxide nanotubes with zigzag, armchair and chiral geometries have been investigated by performing classical molecular dynamics simulations. An atomistic potential energy function has been used to represent the interactions among the atoms. Strain has been applied to the generated ZnO nanostructures along their length, which has been realized at two different temperatures, 1 K and 300 K. It has been found that ZnO nanostructures following strain application undergo a structural c...
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.

Kilic, Mehmet Emin; Erkoç, Şakir (2016-02-01)
Structural properties of defected zinc oxide nanosheets have been investigated by performing classical molecular dynamics simulations. An atomistic potential energy function has been used to represent the interactions among the atoms. Different types of defects (vacancy, exchange, Stone Wales like, line defect and ring-like) at the central region have been considered for the nanosheets. Strain has been applied to the generated ZnO nanostructures along both x- and y-axes, which has been realized at two diffe...

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,...
