Abstract:There is significant amount of research to analyze the thermal, electrical and other physical properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs). However, the energy transport mechanism at the contact of two tubes is still not well understood. This study investigates the interfacial thermal interaction between two carbon nanotubes using molecular dynamics simulation and wavelet methods. We place the tubes in a crossed configuration and pass a high temperature pulse along one of the CNTs while keeping other ends fixed, and … Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
