Magnetic Property of OH-Functionalized Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes
Abstract:The ab initio spin density functional theory is applied to study the magnetism of OH-functionalized single-wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT). It is noticed the particular systems, where the two functional OH group are close to each other, carry a net magnetic moment in the ground state, which increases with the decrease of the tube–tube distance. The possible mechanism for the magnetism of OH-functionalized SWCNT is the electron–electron interactions induced by the flat bands near the Fermi level.
