Rotational dynamics and friction in double-walled carbon nanotubes.


We report a study of the rotational dynamics in double-walled nanotubes using molecular dynamics simulations and a simple analytical model that reproduces the observations very well. We show that the dynamic friction is linear in the angular velocity for a wide range of values. The molecular dynamics simulations show that for large enough systems the… (More)
