Abstract
For the first time, the dependence of the bending force on the transverse displacement of atoms in the center of the composite material consisting of graphene and parallel oriented zigzag nanotubes was studied. Mathematical modeling of the action of the needle of the atomic force microscope was carried out using the single-layer armchair carbon nanotube. Armchair nanotubes are convenient for using them as a needle of an atomic force microscope, because their edges are not sharpened (unlike zigzag tubes). Consequently, armchair nanotubes will cause minimal damage upon contact with the investigation object. The geometric parameters of the composite was revealed under the action of the bending force of 6μN.
