Study Results from University of Electronic Science and Technology Provide New Insights into Physics Research (Tensile behavior of single crystalline GaN nanotube bundles: An atomistic-level study)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Research findings on Physics Research are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting out of Chengdu, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "The tensile behavior of single crystalline GaN nanotube bundles was studied using classical molecular dynamics. Stillinger-Weber potential was used to describe the atom-atom interactions."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Electronic Science and Technology, "The GaN bundles consisted of several individual GaN nanotubes with {100} side planes. The simulation results show that the nanotube bundles show a brittle to ductile transition (BDT) by changing the temperatures. The fracture of GaN nanotube bundles is ruled by a thermal activated process, higher temperature will lead to the decrease of the critical stress."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "At high temperatures the individual nanotube in the bundles interact with each other, which induces the increase of the critical stress of bundles."
