Density Functional Theory Simulation of Rhodium Nanoframes and Carbon Nanotube–Graphene Pillars

Density Functional Theory Simulation of Rhodium Nanoframes and Carbon Nanotube–Graphene Pillars

As part of his applied project for his Professional Science Master’s in Nanoscience at ASU, Ben Folsom constructed theoretical models for recently synthesized hollowed rhodium nanoframe and covalently bonded carbon nanotube–graphene pillars based on the TEM images provided in the source publications. Using density functional theory (DFT) calculations he investigated the interaction of nanoframes and nanotube pillars.

Ben earned undergraduate degrees at ASU in Film Production and Physics. Ben completed his masters project in the Nanoscience PSM program and graduated in 2014. His project dealt with the behavior of carbon nanotube forests, their interaction with nanoparticles, and their mechanical and electrical properties. He is starting a PhD in Physics at Lund University in the Department of Particle Physics and the new European Spallation Source.

Molecular Dynamics Simulation of a Carbon Nanotube Gigahertz Oscillator

As part of his final project for the course Simulation Approaches to Bio- and Nanophysics (ASU PHY494/PHY598), C. Michael Gilbert performed classical molecular dynamics simulations of a smaller carbon nanotube in a larger one.
