Abstract

We report on the effects of chirality and diameter on the electron transport properties in individual semiconducting, single wall carbon nanotubes. The Boltzmann transport equation is solved indirectly by the Ensemble Monte Carlo method and directly by Rode's iterative technique. Results show considerable effects of chirality and group on band structure and transport properties of tubes with small diameters. However the effects of chirality and group become negligible for tubes with large diameters. Diameter affects these properties more strongly than either chirality or group.
