|Title:||Simulations of composite carbon films with nanotube inclusions||Authors:||Fyta, Maria G.

Our Monte Carlo simulations show that van der Waals forces play a vital role in shaping up the interfacial geometry, producing a curved graphitic wall surrounding the tubes. The most stable structures are predicted to have intermediate densities, high anisotropies, and increased elastic moduli compared to pure amorphous carbon films.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/7590||ISSN:||0003-6951 (print)
