Tutorial: Linear surface conductivity of an achiral single-wall carbon nanotube

Paper Abstract

Theoretical consideration of electromagnetic scattering by single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and SWNT arrays requires knowledge of the linear surface conductivity of an SWNT. An expression for the surface conductivity of an infinitely long SWNT was derived by Slepyan et al. [Phys. Rev. B 60, 17136-17149 (1999)]10.1103/PhysRevB.60.17136. The twin purposes of this tutorial are to succinctly discuss the derivation using the density matrix formalism and to provide ready-to-use expressions.
