Carbon Nanotube Fracture
27 May 2021 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Christine M Aikens, George C. Schatz, Marcelo Carignano
Due to their mechanical properties, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) hold promise as nanoreinforcements in a variety of composites. As a result, numerous theoretical and experimental studies have been performed in order to understand the behavior of CNTs under axial tension. Whereas quantum mechanical...
Optical and Thermodynamic Properties of Gold Metal Nanoparticles - Effect of Chemical Functionalization
27 May 2021 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Baudilio Tejerina, George C. Schatz, Marcelo Carignano
This laboratory is intended to introduce the student to the use of semiempirical electronic structure methods. In particular, the semiempirical methods will be applied to the study of metallic clusters and the interaction of the clusters with discrete molecular systems such as pyridine.
