    Abstract In this study, we investigate the mechanics of a metallofullerene shuttle memory device, comprising a metallofullerene which is located inside a closed carbon nanotube. The interaction energy for the system is obtained from the 6-12 Lennard-Jones potential using the continuum approximation, which assumes that a discrete atomic structure can be replaced by an average atomic surface density. This approach shows that the system has two equal minimum energy positions, which are symmetrically located close to the tube extremities, and therefore it gives rise to the possibility of being used as a two-state memory device. On one side the encapsulated metallofullerene… More >
