As a potential building block for the next generation of devices/multifunctional materials that are spreading in almost every technology sector, one-dimensional (1D) carbon nanomaterial has received intensive research interests. Recently, a new ultra-thin diamond nanothread (DNT) has joined this palette, which is a 1D structure with poly-benzene sections(More)
Based on its enticing properties, graphene has been envisioned with applications in the area of electronics, photonics, sensors, bio-applications and others. To facilitate various applications, doping has been frequently used to manipulate the properties of graphene. Despite a number of studies conducted on doped graphene regarding its electrical and(More)
Carbon fibres have attracted interest from both the scientific and engineering communities due to their outstanding physical properties. Here we report that recently synthesized ultrathin diamond nanothread not only possesses excellent torsional deformation capability, but also excellent interfacial load-transfer efficiency. Compared with (10,10) carbon(More)
The excellent mechanical properties of graphene have enabled it as appealing candidate in the field of impact protection or protective shield. By considering a monolayer graphene membrane, in this work, we assessed its deformation mechanisms under hypervelocity impact (from 2 to 6 km/s), based on a serial of in silico studies. It is found that the cracks(More)
Doping is an effective approach that allows for the intrinsic modification of the electrical and chemical properties of nanomaterials. Recently, a graphene and carbon nanotube hybrid structure (GNHS) has been reported, which extends the excellent properties of carbon-based materials to three dimensions. In this paper, we carried out a first-time(More)
Influence of pre-exsiting surface defects on the vibrational properties of Ag nanowires.

The elastic properties of 1D nanostructures such as nanowires are often measured experimentally through actuation of nanowires at their resonance frequency, and then relating the resonance frequency to the elastic stiffness using the elementary beam theory. In the present work, we utilize large scale molecular dynamics simulations to report a novel beat(More)
Materials The use of conducting polymers as cathodes for the electrochemical deposition of magnetic transition metal/rare earth alloys We report the electrodeposition of Cu and Ni in aqueous solutions together with the deposition of lanthanides (Gd, Sm, Dy, Tb) and amorphous magnetic alloys of lanthanides with transition metals (Fe, Co) onto various polymer(More)
