Designing multifunctional chemical sensors using Ni and Cu doped carbon nanotubes

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

We demonstrate a “bottom up” approach to the computational design of a multifunctional chemical sensor. General techniques are employed for describing the adsorption coverage and resistance properties of the sensor based on density functional theory and non-equilibrium Green's function methodologies, respectively. Specifically, we show how Ni and Cu doped metallic (6,6) single-walled carbon nanotubes may work as effective multifunctional sensors for both CO and NH3.
