Abstract:A single multiwalled carbon nanotube with an outside diameter of about 12 nm and an inside diameter of about 4 nm has been isolated in order to measure its electrical properties (resistivity, transverse magnetoresistance and temperature dependence of resistance). The semi-metallic character of the conductance of the selected nanotube is concluded from these measurements.
