Abstract

The physics of carbon nanotubes has rapidly evolved into a research field since their discovery by Iijima in multiwall form in 1991 [1] and as single-walled tubes two years later. In recent years, the single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) attracted considerable attention due to their importance as building block in nanotechnology. The strength and flexibility of carbon nanotubes (CNs) makes them of potential use in controlling other nanoscale structures, which suggests they will have an important role in nanotechnology engineering. CNs have already been used as composite fibers in polymers to improve the mechanical, thermal and electrical properties of the bulk product. The action of external electric field alters the electronic character of the Carbon nanotubes. The understanding of these changes and its manipulation are important for using CNs in electrical circuits as ideal device [2-4]. In this work, we calculate and analyze the structural and electrical properties of SWCNT (4, 0) under the presence of an applied external electric field.
