|Title:||Structure and dynamics of carbon nanoscrolls|
|Abstract:||Carbon nanotube scrolls (CNSs) provide an interesting form of carbon that ideally consists of a single sheet of graphite that is spiral wrapped to form a nanotube. We here use molecular dynamics simulations to investigate CNS formation, stability, and the structural effects due to charge injection. CNS formation is seen to automatically occur when a critical overlap between sheet layers is achieved for the partially curled sheet. We find that charge injection causes unwinding of the CNSs, which might be important for the application of CNSs as nanomechanical actuators.|
