Abstract

We present a brief review of the phenomenal progress in electrical transport measurements in individual and ropes of single-wall carbon nanotubes in the past few years. Nanotubes have been made into single-electron transistors, field-effect transistors, and rectifying diodes. A number of interesting mesoscopic transport phenomena have been observed. More significantly, nanotubes exhibit strong electron-electron correlation effects, or so-called Luttinger liquid behavior, associated with their one-dimensional nature.
