sknano.structures.compute_dt(*Ch, *, bond=None, **kwargs)[source][source]

Compute nanotube diameter $$d_t$$ in Å.

$d_t = \frac{|\mathbf{C}_h|}{\pi}$
Parameters: *Ch : {tuple or ints} Either a 2-tuple of ints or 2 integers giving the chiral indices of the nanotube chiral vector $$\mathbf{C}_h = n\mathbf{a}_1 + m\mathbf{a}_2 = (n, m)$$. bond : float, optional Distance between nearest neighbor atoms (i.e., bond length). Must be in units of Å. Default value is the carbon-carbon bond length in graphite, approximately $$\mathrm{a}_{\mathrm{CC}} = 1.42$$ Å float Nanotube diameter $$d_t$$ in Å.
