In addition to being excellent blackbody absorbers, carbon nanotube sheets are a fast source of Joule heating [Kwon 2004] and can be utilized to heat the solar collectors when sunlight is not sufficient.
where [E.sub.Doped GaNNT] is the total energy of doped GaN nanotube in the supercell, [E.sub.Pristine] is the total energy of pristine GaN nanotube, [E.sub.Mn] is the total energy of free manganese atom, and x and N are the number of manganese atoms and the total number of atoms in the supercell, respectively.
Changes in resonance frequency and amplitude for several flexural modes of cantilever vibration provide information about the nanotube's response to compressive load (i.e., buckling and slip-stick motion), tip-surface interactions that may be present, and a more straightforward means for quantifying the CNT's mechanical properties [31-35].
If you can introduce those groups onto the surface of the nanotube, then you achieve two things: First of all, those chemical groups help the nanotubes disperse and then prevent the nanotubes from coming back together so it helps enhance and maintain a stable dispersion.
