Abstract:
In this paper we have submitted some results of computer simulation and calculations based on the density functional theory of the energy and structural characteristics of some possible kinds of stable complex structural defects in graphene with metallic atoms and clusters. Our calculations show that radiation modifying of composite nanomaterials involving graphene and graphene-like structures under special conditions might be a key technology to create very new type of light composites based on the light metal matrices with very high strength.
