Symmetry Properties of Single-Walled BC<sub>2</sub>N Nanotubes

By Lin Jianyi, Pan Hui and Feng YuanPing


<p>Abstract</p> <p>The symmetry properties of the single-walled BC<sub>2</sub>N nanotubes were investigated. All the BC<sub>2</sub>N nanotubes possess nonsymmorphic line groups. In contrast with the carbon and boron nitride nanotubes, armchair and zigzag BC<sub>2</sub>N nanotubes belong to different line groups, depending on the index n (even or odd) and the vector chosen. The number of Raman- active phonon modes is almost twice that of the infrared-active phonon modes for all kinds of BC<sub>2</sub>N nanotubes.</p
