My group got interested in designing nanoscale systems that could self-organize in the 1980s. This led to papers on molecular machines, where we carried out MD for systems designed by others. Usually they did not work so well because the atom sizes are discrete. One of my graduate students (Ching-Hwa Kiang) discovered the first single wall nanotube, which led to papers characterizing them and the mechanism by which they formed. We also had some collaborations with the Atwater group.
