  1. 1. Nanoelectromechanical systems from carbon nanotubes and graphene

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Niklas Lindahl; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; carbon nanotubes; graphene; nanoelectromechanical systems; fabrication; fabrication; graphene; nanoelectromechanical systems;

    Abstract : Carbon nanotubes and graphene have many interesting properties. To exploit the properties in applications their synthesis and incorporation in devices has to be understood and controlled. This thesis is based on experimental studies on synthesis of carbon nanotubes and fabrication of nanoelectromechanical systems from carbon nanotubes and graphene. READ MORE

  2. 2. Field Emission from Multi-walled Carbon Nanotubes and its Application in Nanoelectromechanical Systems

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Martin Sveningsson; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nanoelectromechanical systems; electron field emission; Fowler-Nordheim theory; Carbon nanotubes; Ohmic heating;

    Abstract : Films of aligned multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) areinteresting for applications such as cold emission cathodes in flat-panel display technology and in lighting elements. MWCNTs are, besides this, good candidates to be used innanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS). READ MORE

  3. 3. Modeling a carbon-nanotube-based nanoelectromechanical relay

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Magnus Jonsson; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; surface forces; NEMS; carbon nanotubes; dissipation; nanorelay; mechanical resonances; stiction; high frequency applications; Nanoelectromechanical systems; field emission; tunable resonances;

    Abstract : We have theoretically investigated the properties of a three-terminal carbon-nanotube-based nanoelectromechanical relay. The system operationis based on an coupling between electrical and mechanical degrees of freedom which is a typical characteristic of a NEMS device. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling of Molecular-Scale Nanoelectromechanical Systems

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Caroline Huldt; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; shuttle; mesoscopic; NEMS; graphene; multiscale; DFTB; DFT;

    Abstract : Nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) couple electronic and mechanical degrees of freedom in a nanoscopic structure. The small size introduces many atomistic and quantum mechanical features which on the one hand open up for interesting new features and possibilities but on the other hand make it very difficult to formulate quantitative predictions.

  5. 5. Electromechanical Interactions in Shuttle Systems and Carbon Nanotube Relays

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Tomas Nord; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Coulomb blockade; carbon nanotubes; memory device; nanorelay; single electron tunneling; van der Waals forces; NEMS; shuttle transport; mesoscopic; nanoelectromechanical systems;

    Abstract : In this thesis we theoretically investigate two kinds of nanoscale systems where there is a strong electromechanical coupling, i.e. an intricate relation between the Coulomb forces that can appear in these systems and the displacements of parts of the systems that they cause.
