Thermal stability of a free nanotube from single-layer black phosphorus

Cai, Kun; Wan, Jing; Wei, Ning; Cai, Haifang; Qin, Qing-Hua


Similar to a carbon nanotube fabricated from a graphene sheet, a black phosphorus nanotube (BPNT) can also be theoretically produced by curling rectangular single-layer black phosphorus (SLBP). In the present study, the effect of the thermal vibration of atoms on the failure of a BPNT is investigated using molecular dynamics simulations. Two types of double-shell BPNTs obtained by curling the SLBP along its armchair/pucker and zigzag directions respectively are involved in simulation. At finite...[Show more]
