Theory of electronic states and optical absorption in carbon nanotubes
Author(s): Tsuneya Ando

Paper Abstract

A brief review is given of electronic and optical properties of carbon nanotubes mainly from a theoretical point of view. The topics cover an effective-mass description of electronic states, Aharonov-Bohm effects, and optical absorption including interaction effects on the band structure gap and excitonic effects.
