In this work, β-phosphorus carbide 1D nanowires (PCNWs) are investigated in the framework of density functional theory. The dynamical stability of the considered β-PCNWs at 300 K is verified using ab initio molecular dynamics calculations. According to the results on the band structure calculations, β-PCNWs can be semiconductors, semimetals or metals depending on their size and form. Thus, owning to their unique shape and high tunability of electronic properties, β-PCNWs may be used in optical and photovoltaic nanodevices.
