Nature and strength of bonding in a crystal of semiconducting nanotubes: van der Waals density functional calculations and analytical results
Journal article, 2008

The dispersive interaction between nanotubes is investigated through ab initio theory calculations and in an analytical approximation. A van der Waals density functional (vdW-DF) [M. Dion et al, Phys. Rev. Lett. 92, 246401 (2004)] is used to determine and compare the binding of a pair of nanotubes as well as in a nanotube crystal.
