Temperature effects on a motion transmission device made from carbon nanotubes: a molecular dynamics study

Cai, Kun; Zhang, Xiaoni; Shi, Jiao; Qin, Qing Hua


motion transmission system made from coaxial carbon nanotubes (CNTs) is introduced. In the system, the motor is built from a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) and the converter is made from triple-walled carbon nanotubes (TWCNTs). The outer shell acts as a stator with two fixed tube ends. The inner tube (rotor 1) and the middle tube (rotor 2) can move freely in the stator. When the axial gaps between the motor and the TWCNTs are small enough and the motor has a relatively high rotational...[Show more]
