Abstract:

We establish an analytic approach to determine the tensile and bending stiffness of a hexagonal boron-nitride (h-BN) monolayer and singleand multi-wall boron-nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) directly from the interatomic potential. Such an approach enables one to bypass atomistic simulations and to give the tensile and bending stiffness in terms of the parameters in the potential. For single- and multi-wall BNNTs, the stiffness also depends on the (inner most or outer most) wall radius and the number of the walls. The thickness of h-BN monolayer is also discussed.
