Transport properties of carbon nanotubes

National Research Centre Kurchatov Institute, pl. akad. Kurchatova 1, Moscow, 123182, Russian Federation

The current status of experimental research on the transport characteristics of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) has been reviewed. Methods for measuring transport coefficients of CNTs have been considered. The available experimental data on the temperature dependence of thermal conductivity and electroconductivity of single-walled and multi-walled CNTs have been analyzed in terms of the ballistic mechanism of charge and heat transport.
