First principle studies of zigzag AlN nanoribbon
Ab initio density functional calculations were performed to study the geometry and electronic structure of a prototypical zigzag AlN nanoribbon. We find that H-terminated zigzag 10-AlN nanoribbons have a non-direct band gap and are nonmagnetic. When a transverse electric field is applied, the band gap decreases monotonically with the strength of field E. Zigzag AlN nanoribbons with the N edge unpassivated display strong spin-polarization close to the Fermi level, which will result in...[Show more]
