Modeling extended contacts to nanotube and graphene devices



N. Nemec, D. Tomanek, and G. Cuniberti

Physical Review B 77, 125420 (2008)

Selected for the April 07, 2008 issue of the
Virtual Journal of Nanoscale Science & Technology
.

Carrier injection into carbon nanotubes and graphene nanoribbons, contacted by a metal coating over an arbitrary length, is studied by various means: Minimal models allow for exact analytic solutions which can be transferred to the original system with high precision. Microscopic ab initio calculations of the electronic structure at the carbon-metal interface allow us to extract -- for Ti and Pd as contacting materials -- realistic parameters, which are then used in large scale tight-binding models for transport calculations. The results are shown to be robust against non-epitaxially grown electrodes and disorder at the interface in general, as well as various refinements of the model.
