Abstract

The formation of carbon nanorods from various types of carbon nanotubes has been investigated by performing molecular-dynamics computer simulations. Calculations have been realized by using an empirical many-body potential energy function for carbon. It has been found that carbon nanorod formed from carbon nanotubes with different chirality is not stable even at low temperature.
