7+5(a)shows a bigger price of the densit,y of states than Fig. 7. 5(b), and in addition the power width for the consistent zone is the bigger when it comes to Fig. 7. 5(a). those transformations will be defined a s follows. by way of calculating the strength degrees of a (8,O) nanotube with an identical size, we get an power hole of Es/ltl = zero. sixty two. as a result of the Gaussian broadening that's used, AE/1%1= zero. 033, the strength hole is decreased to E9/1t1 = zero. fifty five. for this reason the wavefunctions are just delocalized within the (l2,O) nanotube zone close to the Fermi strength, and never within the (8,O)nanotube. utilizing the eigenfunctions for the electrons within the nanotube junction buildings proven in Fig. 7. four, the conductance might be made up our minds via c a ~ c u l a t i nthe ~ present density. whilst a voltage V is utilized to the program, the tunneling elect,ric present, I , is given by way of 21631 Here G is the imagin~rypast of the resolvent given through Gi/i(E)= C - ~ E,>, ~ ~ (7. 15)~ P the place E, and Ci, are the p-th eigenvatue and i-th portion of the p-th eigenfunction, respectively, that are bought by way of fixing the t~ght-b~nding Hamiltonian for the junction constitution, corresponding to proven in Fig. 7. four. ftetmning to Eq.
