Quantitative control of a rotary carbon nanotube motor under temperature stimulus

Qin, Qing Hua; Shi, Jiao; Cai, Kun; Wan, Jing


Since a double-walled carbon nanotube (DWCNT)-based rotary motor driven by a uniform temperature field was proposed in 2014, how to control quantitatively the rotation of the rotor is still an open question. In this work, we present a mathematical relationship between the rotor’s speed and interaction energy. Essentially, the increment of interaction energy between the rotor and the stator(s) determines the rotor’s rotational speed, whereas the type of radial deviation of an end carbon...[Show more]
