Nr VACANCY DEFECT RECONSTRUCTION AND ITS EFFECT ON ELECTRON TRANSPORT IN SIC NANOTUBES

Abstract

We investigate the vacancy defect reconstruction and its effect on I-V characteristics in a (4, 0) zigzag and (5, 5) armchair silicon-carbide nanotubes (SiCNTs) by applying self consistent non-equilibrium Green’s function formalism in combination with the density-functional theory to a two probe molecular junction constructed from SiCNTs. The results show… (More)
