Field emission from carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in the form of arrays or thin films give rise to several strongly correlated process of electromechanical interaction and degradation. Such processes are mainly due to (1) electron-phonon interaction [...]
Field emission (FE) from carbon nanotubes (CNTs) grown on a cathode substrate is difficult to characterize using simple formulae or data fitting, which is due to (1) electron-phonon interaction (2) electromechanical force field leading to [...]
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are currently among the best field emitters for a variety of technological applications. However, from mathematical viewpoint, approach towards understanding the physics of nanotube based field emission of a thin film is [...]
Comparison between the Burt-Foreman and Luttinger-Kohn valence-band Hamiltonians have been performed for realistic V-groove GaAs/AlGaAs and InGaAs/InP quantum wires. Significant differences in band structure is only found for InGaAs/InP quantum wires.
