Molecular mobility on graphene nanoribbons.

Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) have been proposed to be used as nanoscale mass-conveyor highways. However, how factors such as edge confinement, edge rippling, ribbon twisting, and thermal fluctuations affect the mobility of admolecules on GNRs for such application remains unknown. Using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, we address these issues by… CONTINUE READING
