I. Electrical switching in metallic carbon nanotubes Transformation of Chain Molecules

( Y.-W. Son, J. Ihm, etc., Phys. Rev. Lett. 95, 216602(2005) )


1. Motivation Transformation of Chain Molecules

  • Metallic and semiconducting carbon nanotubes are produced simultaneously.

C. Dekker, A. Zettl

Selection Problem!

  • Semiconducting nanotubes : easy to change conductance using gate

  • Metallic nanotubes: robust against impurities, defects, or external fffffffff fields (difficult to change conductance)


1. Motivations – cont’d Transformation of Chain Molecules

Is it possible to control the conductance of metallic single-wall carbon nanotubes?

S.B. Lee, A. Zettl

Interplay between defects and electric fields

electron flow


2. Calculational Method Transformation of Chain Molecules

Nitrogen Boron Transformation of Chain Molecules

The electronic potential of N(B) is lowered. Levels of quasibound states move down.

The electronic potential of N(B) is raised. Levels of quasibound states move up.

B

N

  • Switching behavior: off/on ratio=607kΩ/6.4kΩ~100

  • Maximum resistance depends on the relative position between N and B.

  • Asymmetric resistance w.r.t. the direction of Eext


5. Scaling for larger (n,n) SWNT Transformation of Chain Molecules

∆H ∝ Eext · (diameter)2


6. Switching in (10,10) SWNT with Vacancies Transformation of Chain Molecules

  • Four carbon atoms are removed (Strong repulsive potential).

  • Doubly degenerate quasibound states at fermi level

  • Switching behavior: off/on ratio=1200kΩ/6.4kΩ ~200

  • Symmetric resistance w.r.t. the direction of Eext


6. Switching in (10,10) with Vacancies – cont’d Transformation of Chain Molecules

Quasibound states move up or down depending on the direction of Eext.


Summary
Summary Transformation of Chain Molecules

  • Conductance of metallic CNTs with impurities and applied electric fields is studied.

  • With N and B impurity atoms on opposite sides, asymmetric switching is possible using external fields.

  • With a large vacancy complex, symmetric switching is possible using external fields.

Example of MATERIAL DESIGN : totalreflection by three nitrogen impurities

Importance of geometric symmetry (equilateral triangle)

Doubly degenerate impurity states cause perfect reflection at 0.6 eV.

(Both even and odd states are fully reflected at same energy.)

With applied electric fields,

Suppose ∆H at site α is ∆E.

In other words, is G0(α;E) shifted by ∆E.
