We performed studies of coherent electronic transport through a single walled carbon nanotube. In the calculations multiple scattering on the contacts and interference processes were taken into account. Conductance is a composition of contributions from different channels. We studied also spin--dependent transport in the system with ferromagnetic electrodes. The magnetoresistance is large and shows large oscillations, it can be even negative in some cases.

Electronic transport in molecular systems with para- and ferromagnetic leads
Using a non-equilibrium Green functions technique and the Hartree?Fock approximation, electronic transport calculations were performed for nanodevices consisting of bi-partite type molecules
Charge accumulation on a Luttinger liquid
The average charge Q on a quantum wire, modeled as a single-channel Luttinger liquid (LL), connected to metallic leads and coupled to a gate is studied theoretically. We find that the behavior of the


Coherent transport of electron spin in a ferromagnetically contacted carbon nanotube
Conventional electronic devices generally utilize only the charge of conduction electrons; however, interest is growing in ‘spin-electronic’ devices, whose operation depends additionally on the
Electron–electron correlations in carbon nanotubes
Single-wall carbon nanotubes, are ideally suited for electron-transport experiments on single molecules because they have a very robust atomic and electronic structure and are sufficiently long to
Fabry - Perot interference in a nanotube electron waveguide
This work describes an example of a coherent molecular electronic device whose behaviour is explicitly dependent on quantum interference between propagating electron waves—a Fabry–Perot electron resonator based on individual single-walled carbon nanotubes with near-perfect ohmic contacts to electrodes.
