FIG. 1.

Demonstration of a carbon nanocone’s cross section along the central axis. Two spherical caps are both tangential to the frustum. It can be considered to be frustum with two tangential spherical caps. There are 12 carbon pentagons distributed in the two spherical caps of the cone to form a closed structure. Any pentagon defects exist only at the two ends of a carbon nanocone.

FIG. 2.

(Color online) Typical data that describe the dependence of the free energy for a carbon nanocone seed are plotted. It shows that the bigger the cone angle is, the larger the free energy is.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Free energy of seeds varies with radii. The cone angle of seeds is 19.2°, i.e., there are five pentagons on the seeds.
