Author(s): Zhao Wang A gear effect is demonstrated at parallel and cross junctions between boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) via atomistic simulations. The atoms of neighboring BNNTs are meshed together at the junctions like gear teeth through long-range noncovalent interactions, which are shown to be able to transmit mot... [Phys. Rev.
