Nanomaterials with chiral morphologies hold promise for a wide diversity of technologically important applications in such fields as micro/nano- electromechanical systems and medical engineering. Understanding the mechanisms underlying the formation of chiral morphologies of natural and synthesized materials remains an issue of crucial significance. In this study, a refined Kirchhoff rod model taking into account anisotropic surface effects is employed to describe quasi-one-dimensional...[Show more]
