Vibrational, electronic, and optical properties of carbon nanotubes

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

Vibrational, electronic, and optical properties of carbon nanotubes are studied theoretically and computationally within symmetry-adapted models of the lattice dynamics and the band structure of the nanotubes. This technique exploits the helical symmetry of the perfect, defect-free nanotubes. The optical transition energies and the resonance Raman line profiles are derived numerically.
