Drawing nanostructures with povray

  Sometime ago I discovered povray, a ray tracing program which generates stunning three-dimensional graphics. I used it to draw nanostructures and in particular nanotubes in different configurations, hereafter the plots and the corresponding scripts: From left to right: 1) illuminated nanotube, STM_tips.pov 2) gated nanotube, gated_tube.pov 3) nanotube and STM tip, light_tube.pov

Efficient Gate-tunable light-emitting device made of defective boron nitride nanotubes

I published my first “Nature”, even if the lower level one, a Nature Scientific Reports: Efficient Gate-tunable light-emitting device made of defective boron nitride nanotubes: from ultraviolet to the visible Claudio Attaccalite, Ludger Wirtz, Andrea Marini & Angel Rubio Scientific Reports 3, Article number:2698 Boron nitride is a promising material for nanotechnology applications due to… Read More
