    • Adsorption and dissociation of hydrogen molecule on carbon nanotubes 

      Öztürk, Yavuz (Bilkent University, 2004)
      Earlier, it has been suggested that carbon nanotubes can provide high storage capacity and other physical properties suitable for the fuel cell technologies. In this thesis we have investigated adsorption, desorption and ...
    • Magnetism of transition metal nanowires 

      Ataca, Can (Bilkent University, 2008)
      In this thesis we investigated structural, electronic and magnetic properties of 3d (light) transition metal (TM) atomic chains and Cr nanowires using firstprinciples pseudopotential plane wave calculations. Infinite ...
    • Silicon and carbon based nanowires 

      Tongay, Sefaattin (Bilkent University, 2004)
      Nanowires have been an active field of study since last decade. The reduced dimensionality end size allowing electrons can propagate only in one direction has led to quantization which are rather different from the bulk ...
    • A study of adsorption of single atoms on carbon nanotubes 

      Durgun, Engin (Bilkent University, 2003)
      The adsorption of individual atoms on the semiconducting and metallic singlewall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) have been investigated by using first-principles pseudopotential plane wave method within Density Functional Theory. ...
