Abstract

Due to the ultra-light characteristics, carbon nanothreads are expected as promising integrators into electronic devices to improve the electronic and magnetic properties. This chapter aims to introduce the fundamental electronic and magnetic properties of carbon nanothreads and provide manipulation strategies to improve the properties. The computational details of first-principle calculation are introduced. The effects of topological structure on the bandgaps of diamond nanothread are illustrated, and the associating conducting/semiconducting properties are analyzed and compared with other carbon allotropes. Besides, the carbon nanothread’s electronic and magnetic properties can be tuned through physical approach (strain) and chemical approaches (functionalization), and the tunable mechanisms are revealed.
