عنوان مقاله [English]
The nano-resonator sensors are designed to detect atoms or molecules more precisely and robustly. One of the techniques used to design nano-sensors is vibration-based method. In this method, the detection principle is based on the differentiable shift in resonant frequencies in nano-resonator due to foreign atoms or molecules attached to the surface of the nano-resonators. Carbon-based nano-structures are common nano-materials used for design of nano-sensors due to their high modulus of elasticity and extremely low mass. Nowadays, boron nitride nano-tubes which have similar structures to the carbon nano-tubes are considered as nano-resonators.The present study aims to investigate the ability of bi-layered nano-sheets made of graphene or boron-nitride or a monolayer graphene and a monolayer boron-nitride to detect foreign atoms or molecules in comparison with a
monolayer nano-sheet. Also, the free vibration of two-layered nano-sheets formed by a monolayer graphene and a monolayer boron nitride nano-sheet with different boundary conditions are studied. The fundamental frequencies of this hybrid two-layered system are compared with those of bi-layered graphene and boron nitride nano-sheets as well. To this end, Aifantis's theory is incorporated into the classical plate theory to obtain a non-classical plate theory which is suitable to study the mechanical behavior of carbon- and/or boron-nitride-based nano-structures. Because of the importance of the inter-layer van der waals force on mechanical behavior of multi-layer nano-sheets, the nonlinear model of inter-layered interaction between graphene and boron-nitride nano-sheets and between boron-nitride layers is estimated based on Lenard-Jones 6-12 potential at first, although the linear part of inter-layered interaction model is used in linear free vibration study.The results show that bi-layered boron-nitride nano-sheets are more suitable for detecting foreign mass rather than bi-layered graphene sheets or hybrid two-layer system, although the sensitivity of a monolayer boron-nitride nano-sheet with the same surface area to foreign mass is more than the bi-layered one. On the other hand, between the bi-layered boron-nitride and the monolayer boron-nitride nano-sheets, which have the same mass, the bi-layered boron-nitride is more sensitive to foreign mass.
