In carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with large radii, either metallic or semiconducting, several subbands contribute to the electrical conduction, while in metallic nonarmchair nanotubes with small radii the wall curvature induces a large energy gap. In this paper, we propose a model for the signal propagation along single wall CNTs (SWCNTs) of arbitrary chirality, at microwave through terahertz frequencies, which takes into account both these characteristics in a self-consistent way. We first study an… CONTINUE READING
