    ABSTRACT: The capacitance between arbitrary two sites (vertices) in infinite triangular and honeycomb networks is studied by using Green’s function. Recurrence formulas for capacitance between arbitrary sites of the triangular lattice are obtained. The capacitance for the honeycomb lattice is shown to be expressed in terms of the one for the triangular lattice

    ABSTRACT: Synthesized ZnO nanotubes have finite wall thickness and holy hexagon section. Using density functional theory first we calculated structural and electronic properties of isolated and bundle of these systems. Then same calculations are performed for these systems which encapsulated Fe nanochain or Fe nanowires with different thickness. We found for both cases the bundle is more stable than isolated nanotube. Both pristine of isolated and bundle are semiconductor, in which the bundle energy gap is less than isolated nanotube. All encapsulated systems are spin polarized ferromagnetic with high magnetic moment. In each encapsulated nanotube for lower thickness all ZnO layers are metal but for high thickness the outer layers remained semiconductor.

    ABSTRACT: Using the first-principles calculations based on the spin-polarized density functional theory (DFT), we investigated the structural, electronic and magnetic properties of Cu-doped single walled ZnO nanotubes (SWZnONTs). Our results show that for a unit cell with 40 Zn and 40 O atoms, substitution of a single Zn atom by a Cu leads from a semiconductor to a ferromagnetic (FM) half-metallic phase transition with 100% spin polarization. In this case the total magnetic moment of super cell is 1.0 μ B . To investigate the effects of Cu-codpoed SWZnONTs two different configurations are considered, first we assumed the two Zn atoms replaced by two Cu atoms are close and second they are far from each other. When Cu atoms are at the nearest-neighboring positions, the antiferromagnetism (AFM) phase is stable, while increasing the distance between the two Cu atoms, the ferromagnetism stability increases. In the AFM phase the structures are nonmagnetic semiconductors, but in the FM phase all these systems are half-metallic systems with 100% spin polarization, so it can be used as magnetic nanostructure and future applications in permanent magnetism, magnetic recording, and spintronics.

    ABSTRACT: For a solution droplet in equilibrium with the atmospheric environment, a relationship exists between radius and concentration, which allows to express the saturation ratio of the droplet as a function of either one of these two parameters. The curves showing the complete behaviour of saturation ratio as a function of radius, for various sizes of NaCl nuclei, were previously presented for both wholly and partially dissolved salt. Here, the dependence of saturation ratio on droplet concentration, rather than on its radius, is examined and plotted for various NaCl nuclei. The occurrence of an analogous, but X-shaped, hysteresis phenomenon, characterizing the behaviour of the solution concentration in a growing-shrinking cycle of a solution droplet under changing humidity, is evidenced and discussed. An insoluble spherical core is assumed to be always present inside the condensation nucleus, so that the onset of the sudden salt re-crystallization is triggered at a well defined concentration value.

    ABSTRACT: AlInN thin films were synthesized on Si substrates by using stacked elemental layers (SEL) technique. Three stacking sequence Al/InN, Al/InN/Al/InN and Al/InN/Al/InN/Al/InN were prepared on Si (1 0 0) substrates by reactive RF sputtering of In target in Ar-N-2 and DC sputtering of Al target in Ar atmosphere at room temperature. Annealing of the deposited stacks was carried out at 400 degrees C for 6 h in a three zone tube furnace. Structural properties of the annealed films were investigated using X-ray diffraction (XRD) whereas the surface analysis of the films was carried out using field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM) and atomic force microscope (AFM). XRD results show the formation of wurtzite AlInN thin films which become more obvious with increasing the stacked layers. FESEM analysis reveals drops-like polycrystalline films structure with randomly oriented grains whereas the AFM results show a decrease in the surface roughness with increasing stacking sequence. The formation of more prominent AlInN films with increase of stacking layers is attributed to a uniform interaction among the top and bottom Al and InN multilayers as a result of the annealing.
