Physical Properties of Multi-wall Nanotubes

Chapter

Abstract

After a short presentation on the preparation and structural properties of Multi-Wall carbon NanoTubes (MWNTs), their outstanding electronic, magnetic, mechanical and field emitting properties are reviewed. The manifestation of mesoscopic transport properties in MWNTs is illustrated through the Aharonov-Bohm effect, universal conductance fluctuations, the weak localization effect and its power-law temperature/field dependences. Measurements of the Young’s modulus of individual nanotubes show the high strength of tubes having well-graphitized walls. Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) measurements indicate the low-dimensional character of the electronic states even for relatively large diameter tubes. The conducting nature of the tubes, together with their large curvature tip structure, make them excellent electron and light emitters suitable for applications.
