FIG. 1.

A sheet of triangular network of gold atoms that can be rolled up to form a single-walled nanotube. Gray circles (38 in total) are those in the unit cell. The length of the unit cell is specified by , where L is the helical pitch of the tube.

FIG. 3.

Total energy per unit cell vs length per unit cell of the SWGNT (5,3). A minimum is found for . The pitch of the tube is five times the value.
