A Primer on the Geometry of Carbon Nanotubes and Their ModificationsGeometric Definitions

A Primer on the Geometry of Carbon Nanotubes and Their Modifications: Geometric Definitions [This chapter covers the geometrical description of single-walled carbon nanotubes. The geometric definition is based on the chiral vector and chiral angle which allow to imagine a carbon nanotube as rolling a graphene sheet into a cylinder. Configurations as zigzag, armchair, and chiral tube are distinguished. Basic equations for the geometrical description as function of the chiral vector are provided.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[This chapter covers the geometrical description of single-walled carbon nanotubes. The geometric definition is based on the chiral vector and chiral angle which allow to imagine a carbon nanotube as rolling a graphene sheet into a cylinder. Configurations as zigzag, armchair, and chiral tube are distinguished. Basic equations for the geometrical description as function of the chiral vector are provided.]
