- Tunneling into multiwalled carbon nanotubes: Coulomb blockade and the Fano resonance
- Yi, W.; Lu, L.; Hu, H.; Pan, Z. W.; Xie, S. S.
- Tunneling spectroscopy measurements of single tunnel junctions formed between multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) and a normal metal are reported. Intrinsic Coulomb interactions in the MWNTs give rise to a strong zero-bias suppression of a tunneling density of states that can be fitted numerically to the environmental quantum-fluctuation theory. An asymmetric conductance anomaly near zero bias is found at low temperatures and interpreted as Fano resonance in the strong tunneling regime.
