Abstract

In this paper we use ab initio density functional theory (DFT) to calculate the electronic transport properties of the endohedral fullerene N@C-60 encapsulated within (n, m) single-waited carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) to produce carbon nanotube peapods (CNPs). By comparing the electronic properties Of C-60@(n, m) and N@C-60@(n, m) CNPs, we demonstrate that due to the inertness of the inner surface of the C-60 cage, the nitrogen is very well protected from its environment.
