Carbon Nanotube and Graphene Device Physics by H.-S. Philip Wong, Deji Akinwande

By H.-S. Philip Wong, Deji Akinwande

Explaining the homes and function of sensible nanotube units and similar functions, this is often the 1st introductory textbook at the topic. the entire basic ideas are brought, in order that readers with out a sophisticated clinical history can stick to the entire significant rules and effects. extra subject matters coated comprise nanotube transistors and interconnects, and the fundamental physics of graphene. challenge units on the finish of each bankruptcy let readers to check their wisdom of the cloth coated and achieve a better knowing of the analytical ability units constructed within the textual content. this is often an amazing textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate scholars taking classes in semiconductor equipment physics and nanoelectronics. it's also an ideal self-study advisor for pro equipment engineers and researchers.

While BNTs share many similar physical properties to CNTs, their electronic or optical properties are, however, markedly different. 5 eV that is largely independent of tube chirality for practical diameters ( 1 nm). Moreover, CNTs offer direct optical transitions, whereas BNTs can offer either direct or indirect optical transitions, depending on the chirality. For further studies on BNTs, the reader will find the comprehensive review by Golberg et al. 33 30 For examples, see: F. -J. Muhr, M. Niederberger, F.

In order to make any further progress in determining the specific band structure of a particular solid, we would need to understand the crystal structure of that particular solid. To underscore the importance of the crystal structure, it would be fair to state that it is at the core of modern solid-state physics. The crystal structure can be viewed in two domains similar to how a coin has two views. One domain is in position (sometimes called direct) space and the other domain is in reciprocal space.

For example, if we desire to determine the band structure of nanotubes and nanoribbons, the Kronig–Penney model is utterly inadequate in providing basic information such as the bandgap dependency on the diameter of these nanostructures. In order to make any further progress in determining the specific band structure of a particular solid, we would need to understand the crystal structure of that particular solid. To underscore the importance of the crystal structure, it would be fair to state that it is at the core of modern solid-state physics.
