MEASUREMENT of NANOTUBE WALL WIDTH
How (and if) the width changes for different strains?
At left, we show the maximun thickness as a function of strain
(the different letters indicate different density concentrations)
and the thickness as a function of density below. There is very little change in thickness, if anything an increase as strain increases.
Omri hypthesizes that this is due to the increasing distance between the positive nuclei (on the Y axis) which makes the attractive electrostatic force weaker (on the radial X and Z axes) per length unit.
The maximum reaches close to the h=0.06nm that was calculated.
