Abstract:AbstractUsing state of the art quantum calculations, we have studied the electronic and transport properties of a variety of nanotube-based structures relevant for the design of nanoscale electronic devices. We have investigated the conductance of carbon nanotubes under mechanica distortions such as bending, defects and tube-tube contacts, and analyzed the behavior of carbon nanotube-metal contacts with the aim of explaining the anomalously large contact resistance observed in nanotube devices. Our results pro…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific 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 researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
