Abstract

We investigate the electronic properties of sculpturenes, formed by sculpting selected shapes from bilayer graphene, boron nitride or graphene-boron nitride hetero-bilayers and allowing the shapes to spontaneously reconstruct. The simplest sculpturenes are periodic nanotubes, containing lines of non-hexagonal rings. More complex sculpturenes formed from shapes with non-trivial topologies, connectivities and materials combinations may also be constructed. Results are presented for the reconstructed geometries, electronic densities of states and current-voltage relations of these new structures.
