2 VM Ayres, ECE , F13 Lecture 23, 19 Nov 13 Carbon Nanotubes and Graphene CNT/Graphene electronic properties sp 2 : electronic structure E-k relationship/graph for polyacetylene E-k relationship/graph for graphene E-k relationship/graph for CNTs R. Saito, G. Dresselhaus and M.S. Dresselhaus Physical Properties of Carbon Nanotubes

3 VM Ayres, ECE , F13 Polyacetylene E-k: E kxkx -k x

4 VM Ayres, ECE , F13 To really finish: Need to model the wavefunctions: Could let  = |2p x > Could let  = |  > (  = |sp 2 > is the  -bond) ECE : Use this result, p.24: t = -1.0 s = +0.2  2p = 0.0

8 VM Ayres, ECE , F13 To really finish: Need to model the wavefunctions: Could let  = |2p x > Could let  = |  > (  = |sp 2 > is the  -bond) ECE : Use this result, p.27: t = Units s = Units  2p = 0.0 Units  2p A Example: what are the Units?

9 VM Ayres, ECE , F13 To really finish: Need to model the wavefunctions: Could let  = |2p x > Could let  = |  > (  = |sp 2 > is the  -bond) ECE : Use this result, p.27: t = eV s = pure number  2p = 0.0 eV  2p A Answer:

11 VM Ayres, ECE , F13 Bottom of the conduction band: the 6 equivalent K-points E kyky kxkx

12 VM Ayres, ECE , F13 What you can do with an E-k diagram: Example: What is “k” in 2D? In 1D?

13 VM Ayres, ECE , F13 What you can do with an E-k diagram: Answer:

15 VM Ayres, ECE , F13 Graphene: the 6 equivalent K-points  Bottom of the conduction band the 6 equivalent K-points  metallic E kyky kxkx Therefore: CNTs are metallic at the conditions for the K-points of graphene

16 VM Ayres, ECE , F Use to find k Find k Find H AA, H AB, S AA, S AB Find det| H – E S | = 0 => E = E(k) Plot E versus k Rules for finding the electronic structure (p. 21):

17 VM Ayres, ECE , F13 sp 2 electronic structure: CNTs – Real space (Unit cell) – Reciprocal space – Use Real and Reciprocal space to find E

18 VM Ayres, ECE , F13 CNT Unit cell in green: C h = n a 1 + m a 2 |C h | = a√n 2 + m 2 + mn d t = |C h |/  cos  = a 1 C h |a 1 | |C h | T = t 1 a 1 + t 2 a 2 t 1 = (2m + n)/ d R t 2 = - (2n + m) /d R d R = the greatest common divisor of 2m + n and 2n+ m N = | T X C h | | a 1 x a 2 | = 2(m 2 + n 2 +nm)/d R
