Numerical solution of electrons' and phonons' coupled dynamics in Carbon Nanotubes

Maria Morandi Cecchi, Vittorio Rispoli


A model for electrons' transport properties in Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs)is introduced, including also the effects of the coupling of electrons with optical phonons. The derived equations form a system of bi-dimensional hyperbolic conservation laws with collision terms on the right hand side. Such system is solved by WENO reconstruction methods and TVD Runge-Kutta schemes for time integration.
