Abstract

A possibility of nanotube and nanoobject simulation using molecular dynamics method is investigated. The embedded atom method is used to describe interatomic interactions. The initial material for nanotube and nanoobject synthesis is a two-layer nanosized metallic crystalline film. One of the film layers is composed of copper atoms and the other layer of aluminum atoms. The synthesis of three-dimensional nanoobects and nanotubes is simulated for different values of film length and layer thickness. Besides, thermal stability of the obtained nanoobjects is studied at a temperature increase up to the melting temperature. The basic scheme for the formation of nanoobjects of complex shape and structure as well as for their use as intellectual nanodevices that convert thermal energy to mechanical one was suggested.
