MOLECULE -- please stay -- NOT SO EASY

  • Following success with substitutional changes in mass problems in adhesion came as a surprise.
  • Narrow vibrating tubes shook off their burdens.
  • Our experimental collaborators, found similar issues and they suggested decreasing the nanotube's curvature.
  • This led to a delay while revalidating the code and analysis for much thicker (and longer) tubes.
  • Added benzene rings still flappped too much for clean statistics.

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