The electron transport in single-wall carbon nanotubes is one-dimensional and ballistic. Typically carbon nanotubes form tunneling contacts to electrodes and behave as quantum dots at low temperatures. We report on experiments on carbon nanotubes contacted with ferromagnetic metal. In these devices strong hysteretic magnetoresistance is observed at low… CONTINUE READING
