Chirality-Dependent Motion Transmission between Aligned Carbon Nanotubes

26 Sep 2019 Wang Zhao

I demonstrate a directional motion-transmission behavior of aligned carbon nanotubes (CNTs) using atomistic simulations. The network of overlapping $\pi$ orbitals at the interface act as gear teeth to translate the sliding motion of a CNT into a rotating motion of the adjacent CNT, or \textit{viceversa}... (read more)
