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.

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