# Spin–orbit coupling and electron spin resonance for interacting electrons in carbon nanotubes

@article{Martino2003SpinorbitCA, title={Spin–orbit coupling and electron spin resonance for interacting electrons in carbon nanotubes}, author={Alessandro De Martino and Reinhold Egger and F. Murphy-Armando and Karen Hallberg}, journal={Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter}, year={2003}, volume={16} }

We review the theoretical description of spin-orbit scattering and electron spin resonance in carbon nanotubes. Particular emphasis is laid on the effects of electron-electron interactions. The spin-orbit coupling is derived, and the resulting ESR spectrum is analyzed both using the effective low-energy field theory and numerical studies of finite-size Hubbard chains and two-leg Hubbard ladders. For single-wall tubes, the field theoretical description predicts a double peak spectrum linked to…
