Buckling behaviour of composites with double walled nanotubes from carbon and phosphorus

Author affiliations

Abstract

Due to weak interactions among phosphorus atoms in black phosphorene, a nanotube obtained by curling single-layer black phosphorus is not as stable as a carbon nanotube (CNT) at finite temperature. In the present work, we recommend a new 1D composite material with a double-walled nanotube (DWNT) from a black phosphorus nanotube (BPNT) and a CNT. The dynamic response of the composite DWNTs is simulated using a molecular dynamics approach. Effects of the factors including temperature, slenderness and configurations of DWNTs on dynamic behavior of the composite are discussed. Compared with a single-walled BPNT, the composite DWNTs under uniaxial compression show some unique properties. When a BPNT is embedded in a CNT which will not only isolate the BPNT from the ambient conditions, but also improve the capability of axial deformation of the BPNT, the system will not collapse rapidly even if the BPNT has been buckled.
