Abstract

A nanotube being placed in a vapor atmosphere will provoke condensation of vapor on the tip of nanotube giving rise to a nano droplet formation. Under a resonant mechanical excitation condition the nano droplet may become unstable and lose touch with the tip of the nanotube. This is how nano droplets may be created. Theoretical and experimental research to verify this idea is being conducted. It was shown that the stability of a nano droplet at the end of a carbon nanotube depends on mechanical properties of the carbon nanotube, droplet size, thermal noise, amplitude and frequency of external excitation.
