Coupling effects of electric field and bending on the electronic and magnetic properties of penta-graphene nanoribbons

Abstract

Quasi one dimensional materials made from carbon have attracted a lot of attention because of their interesting properties and potential applications in electronic devices. Recently, a new kind of carbon allotrope named penta-graphene nanoribbon (P-GRNs) has just been proposed. By implementing first principle calculations, P-GRNs exhibit large tunable band gaps under bending stress, and the band gaps of P-GRNs are easier to control than that of GRNs. In addition, the order of spin moments of P-GRNs can transform from ferromagnetic to antiferromagnetic under the coupling effect of electric field and bending strain, thus resulting a significant change of magnetism. Therefore, the diverse electronic and magnetic properties highlight the potential applications of P-GRNs in flexible displays, wearable computations electronics and digit memory devices.
