Stability and Shrinkage by Diffusion in Hollow Nanotubes

Abstract:

Article Preview

The shrinkage via the vacancy mechanism of a mono–atomic nanotube is described. Using Gibbs–Thomson boundary conditions an exact solution is obtained of the kinetic equation in quasi steady–state at the linear approximation. A collapse time as a function of the size of a nanotube is determined. Kinetic Monte Carlo simulation is used to test the analytical analysis.
