Abstract
In the present paper the geometric structure of a recently found sort of Fullerene, Buckytubes, was described by considering them to be formed by rolling up graphite sheets in different manners. The empirical linear combination of atomic orbitals (LCAO) method was used to study their band structure, density of state (DOS) and optical properties. Our results show that their properties not only differ from graphite but also vary according to the diameter and the helicity of tubules. Under the tight-binding approximation scheme, the boundary condition is an important factor to determine the electronic properties of various Buckytubes. Finally, a rule for the electronic properties of Buckytubes was gained.
