  • Study of sensitivity to added mass made by replacing the C12 atoms with C13 showed zeptogram sensistivity.
  • Direct study of actual additional atoms or molecules not made until now.
  • Electronic density is three dimensional, and varies in density as functions of distance from the nucleus and of angle.
  • Electronic density surrounding nanotubes was studied within DFT by Quantum Espresso and vizualized with AViz (Atomistic Vizualization) package developed at the Technion and now part of the FP7 SimPhoNy project.
  • Initial measurements of its width under strain were not of a consistent series.

  • This study is part of the EU FP7 SimPhoNy project, and of Omri Adler's M. Sc. thesis.
