1 Preface
This project describes the outcome of the Bachelorproject, we have been occupied with inthe autumn semester of 1998, namely ”The electrical properties of Carbon Nanotubes”.It has been of great interest working with this issue and we hope the result can inspiresomeone else to look further into it. We will!The project has come into existence in cooperation with the Department of Solid StatePhysics of the University of Copenhagen, in particular our advisors Jesper Nygaard, DavidCobden and Poul Erik Lindelof.We will in this project try to describe some of the knowledge about the electrical propertiesof carbon nanotubes and investigate several different tubes of a broad scale of range topoint out the details. Among other things, you will see that some tubes are metallic andsome are semiconductors. Further more it is our intention to write this project in sucha way that it is easily comprehensible to the reader. We will try to explain some of themethods used in the published articles more carefully, because often it is not obvious ornot explained what exactly happens. The project is purely theoretical and all results arebased on a computer program.Good luck with the reading!3
