The atomic structure of a carbon nanotube can be described by its chiral angle and diameter and can be specified by a pair of lattice indices ( n,m). The electronic and mechanical properties are critically dependent on these indices. Scanning tunneling microscopy ~STM! is a useful tool to investigate carbon nanotubes since the atomic structure as well as the electronic properties of individual molecules can be determined. This paper presents a discussion of the technique to obtain ( n,m… CONTINUE READING
