Time-scale separation of confined and free motions in the H2@SWNT system.
Confinement effects in nano structured materials significantly change the dynamics of the adsorbed molecules. The special structure of carbon nanotubes, with a tight potential in 2 dimensions and a 3rd quasi-unbound coordinate, suggest that particularly interesting physics may arise in these systems resulting from the coexistence of the two sets of confined and quasi-free motions. In this work we present an adiabatization of the problem based on the different time scale of the different degrees of freedom which can help us better understand the system.
