Carbon-based materials are recently of great interest for electronic de vices. One of the important issues in graphene based nanoelectronics is to control its electronic and transport properties. The manipulation of electronic properties of graphene nanoribbons (GNR) has been suggested via mechanical strain, vacancies and chemical doping. From modeling point of view, few studies have been reported to investigate the electronic properties of mechanically stretched GNR in a contact with metal electrodes. In this work, we aim to elucidate the combined effects of mechanical strain and the role of metal contact area on the electronic and transport properties of GNR. The structural and electronical properties of stretched GNR on Nickel and Palladium surfaces with different contact area and suspended strained graphene junction between metal electrodes are investigated by means of density functional theory using Vienna Ab initio Simulation Package (VASP). The structure stability as well as stress-strain curve are analyzed for several strain coefficients.
