Multi-scale approach for strain-engineering of phosphorene
Journal article, 2017
A multi-scale approach for the theoretical description of deformed phosphorene is presented. This approach combines a valence-force model to relate macroscopic strain to microscopic displacements of atoms and a tight-binding model with distance-dependent hopping parameters to obtain electronic properties. The resulting self-consistent electromechanical model is suitable for large-scale modeling of phosphorene devices. We demonstrate this for the case of inhomogeneously deformed phosphorene drum, which may be used as an exciton funnel.
