We calculate the amplitude of the random-telegraph-signal (RTS) noise due to a single charged defect in a long-channel p-type carbon nanotube field-effect transistor, using the nonequilibrium Green function method in a tight-binding approximation. We find that the amplitude of the RTS noise caused by a positive charge close to the source (or drain) contact increases with the applied gate voltage and drain voltage. A positive charge located at the nanotube-oxide interface and close to the source (or drain) contact may cause a large RTS noise of about 50% in the on-state.
