Theory of electronic states and transport in carbon nanotubes

  title={Theory of electronic states and transport in carbon nanotubes},
  author={Tsuneya Ando}
A brief review is given of electronic and transport properties of carbon nanotubes mainly from a theoretical point of view. The topics cover an effective-mass description of electronic states, optical absorption including interaction effects on the band gap and excitonic effects, and the absence of backward scattering except for scatterers with a potential range smaller than the lattice constant which causes a metallic nanotube to be a ballistic conductor even at room temperature.
