  4. Abstract:
  5. In this paper, nanoscale modeling of a multi-shell fullerene embedded in an elastic medium and its application to vibrational analysis is investigated. The spherical layers of the multi-shell fullerene are concentrically nested, with carbon-carbon van der Waals interactions between them. Also, the whole multi-shell fullerene is influenced by polymer-carbon van der Waals forces from the surrounding elastic medium. The elasticity generated by the carbon-carbon bonds is assumed to be distributed isotropically over the fullerene surfaces. Following derivation of explicit equations for the motion of the multi-shell fullerene, vibrational behavior of a double-shell fullerene is analyzed and resonant frequencies and the associated mode shapes are determined. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd.
