    Simulation of the Behavior of Carbon Nanotori during Unfolding: A Study of Stability and Electronic Structure

    Olga E Glukhova* and Michael M Slepchenkov

    In this work, we present an in silico study of the dynamic behavior of a carbon nanotorus during the localized breaking of the C-C bonds in its atomic network. It is shown that the unfolding of a carbon nanotorus is accompanied by the appearance of deformation waves running along the atomic network of the carbon structure. We estimate energy stability of a carbon nanotorus under deformations using the original method for calculating the local stresses of an atomic network. A new physical phenomenon of the molecular current fl ow in the most deformed sites of the torus atomic network is discovered.
