Family behaviour of Raman-active phonon frequencies of single-wall nanotubes of C, BN and BC3.


Using a symmetry-based force-constant model of the lattice dynamics, the Raman-active phonon frequencies are calculated for almost 200 single-wall nanotubes of C, BN and BC(3). The n+m=constant family behaviour is found in most branches and these three kinds of nanotubes display different diameter and chirality dependence in different branches. In these… (More)
