Electronic and Field Emission Properties of Carbon Nanocones: A Density Functional Theory Investigation


Using density functional theory calculations, we investigate the electronic structures and field emission properties of carbon nanocones (CNCs). We find that the cohesive and formation energies for various types of CNCs are dependent on the cone angles, while the work function, local density of states, redistribution of the charge, and field emission… (More)
