Transport and Coulomb drag for two interacting carbon nanotubes
- 118 Downloads
We study nonlinear transport for two coupled one-dimensional quantum wires or carbon nanotubes described by Luttinger liquid theory. Transport properties are shown to crucially depend on the contact length Lc. For a special interaction strength, the problem can be solved analytically for arbitrary Lc. For point-like contacts and strong interactions, a qualitatively different picture compared to a Fermi liquid emerges, characterized by zero-bias anomalies and strong dependence on the applied cross voltage. In addition, pronounced Coulomb drag phenomena are important for extended contacts.
