The ballistic regime gives the upper limit of an electron device performance. This paper proposes a fast and efficient model for calculating the current–voltage characteristic of a cylindrical nanowire within the framework of the non-equilibrium Green's function. Under certain assumptions, the calculation is simplified to a one-dimensional problem and the(More)
Lithium nitrate (LiNO3) is known as an important electrolyte additive in lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries. The prevailing understanding is that LiNO3 reacts with metallic lithium anode to form a passivation layer which suppresses redox shuttles of lithium polysulfides, enabling good rechargeability of Li-S batteries. However, this view is seeing more(More)
Reducing the dimensionality of transition metal dichalcogenides to one dimension opens it to structural and electronic modulation related to charge density wave and quantum correlation effects arising from edge states. The greater flexibility of a molecular scale nanowire allows a strain-imposing substrate to exert structural and electronic modulation on(More)
