Abstract:

Using the support we have developed and used a novel method to investigate molecular electronic device applications of carbon nanotube multi-terminal junctions in the form of T- and Y-junctions. The theoretical methods included i large scale simulations using accurate quantum tight-binding molecular dynamics scheme and ii quantum conductivity formalisms. Both methods were developed by the PIs group. All the structures investigated were fully relaxed using quantum tight-binding molecular dynamics methods and their current vs voltage I-V characteristics determined.
