Solid C36 : Crystal structures, formation, and effects of doping


We employ plane-wave pseudopotential density functional calculations to show that the lowest energy D6h C36 crystal is a highly bonded network of hexagonal planes of C36 units with AB stacking. This crystal is significantly more dense and lower in energy than previously proposed structures. We demonstrate that Na is the largest alkali atom that can be… (More)
