Electrostatic deflections of cantilevered metallic carbon nanotubes via charge-dipole model

25 Oct 2018 Wang Z. Devel M.

We compute electrostatic fields induced deformations of cantilevered finite-length metallic carbon nanotubes, using an energy minimization method based on a charge-dipole moment interaction potential combined with an empirical many-body potential. The influence of field strength, field direction and tube geometry on the electrostatic deflection is investigated for both single and double walled tubes... (read more)
