We argue that long-range Coulomb forces convert an isolated sN, Nd armchair carbon nanotube into a strongly renormalized Luttinger liquid. At high temperatures, we find anomalous temperature dependences for the interaction and impurity contributions to the resistivity, and similar power-law dependences for the local tunneling density of states. At low temperatures, the nanotube exhibits spin-charge separation, visible as an extra energy scale in the discrete tunneling density of states (for… Expand

Narrow-gap Luttinger liquid in carbon nanotubes.
TLDR
Charge compressibility at finite density, evaluated in terms of intersoliton interaction, exhibits a crossover from overlapping to nonoverlapping soliton state, and implications for the Coulomb blockade measurements are discussed. Expand
The spectrum of interacting metallic carbon nanotubes: exchange effects and universality
Abstract.The low energy spectrum of finite size metallic single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) is determined. Starting from a tight binding model for the pz electrons, we derive the low energyExpand
dc Josephson effect in metallic single-walled carbon nanotubes
Abstract The dc Josephson effect is investigated in a single-walled metallic carbon nanotube connected to two superconducting leads. In particular, by using the Luttinger liquid theory, we analyzeExpand
Correlated tunneling in intramolecular carbon nanotube quantum dots.
TLDR
Correlated sequential tunneling dominates transport yielding the power law G(max) proportional, variant T(alpha(end-end)-1), typical for tunneling between the ends of two Luttinger liquids. Expand
Long Range Coulomb Interactions in Nearly Metallic Carbon Nanotubes
Tight-binding models show that many metallic carbon nanotubes have a gapped band structure due to curvature and spin-orbit effects, making them only nearly metallic. The predicted spin-orbit couplingExpand
