We characterize the transport properties of functionalized graphene nanoribbons using extensive first-principles calculations based on density functional theory (DFT) that encompass both monovalent and divalent ligands, hydrogenated defects, and vacancies. We find that the edge metallic states are preserved under a variety of chemical environments, while(More)
By combining ab initio all-electron localized orbital and pseudopotential plane-wave approaches we report on calculations of the electron affinity (EA) and the ionization potential (IP) of (5, 5) and (7, 0) single-wall carbon nanotubes. The role played by finite-size effects and nanotube termination has been analysed by comparing several hydrogen-passivated(More)
