FIG. 3.

Electron (a–c) and hole (d–e) band structures for (a,d), 4 (b,e), 16 nm (c,f), for NTs with fixed thickness nm. The NTs have (a–c) or (d–e) orientation. is the length of the unit cell; and are the conduction and valence band edges, respectively. The insets show density plots of the wave functions at the band edges. The localization of the wave functions at one side of the NTs (b,c) is induced by very small asymmetry in the structures.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Conduction and valence band edges as function of the inner diameter of NTs with fixed outer diameter nm (a,c) or with fixed thickness nm (b,d), for ( ), ( ) and (◇) orientations.
