Abstract
A nanoscopic simulation for an acceleration sensor is aimed based on the piezoresistive effect of carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Therefore, a compact model is built from density functional theory (DFT), compared with results of molecular dynamics (MD) that describes the mechanics of carbon nanotubes in a parameterized way. The results for the interesting kind of CNTs [(6,3) and (7,4)] within the two approaches agree in a satisfying way, when DFT-calculations are performed with atomic configurations obtained by MD geometry optimization. Geometry optimization yields the Poisson's ratio for CNTs. Thus, values from MD and DFT are compared. The simulation finally aims the modeling of the conductive behavior of CNTs when strain is applied, but this needs further verification. Here, we present the prediction of the tight binding model for suitable CNTs.
