Electronic states of finite length carbon nanotubes Yuki Tatsumi, Wataru Izumida Tohoku University, Department of Physics Outline Background “SWNT quantum dot” ・ Four-fold degeneracy & two-fold degeneracy ・ Vernier spectrum Motivation Electronic states of armchair SWNTs → “1D ladder model” Result “vernier spectrum” Summary 200nm nanotube S. Sapmaz et al.; nature429, p (2004) Electrode(source) Electrode(drain)

2
Carbon nanotube as a quantum dot Schematic of a quantum dot Nanotube quantum dot S. Sapmaz et al.; Phys. Rev. B 71, (2005) Coulomb oscillation Valley degeneracy(K, K’) Spin degeneracy(↑, ↓) Fourfold degeneracy 200nm nanotube S. Sapmaz et al.; nature429, p (2004) fourfold =0 (If degenerate) Electrode (source) Electrode (drain)

3
Two-fold & four-fold degeneracy A. Makarovski et al,: Phys. Rev. B 74, (2006) Twofold degeneracy? Two-fold? Four-fold? Fourfold degeneracy Twofold degeneracy? ・・・ Periodically? A. Makarovski et al,: Phys. Rev. B 74, (2006) =0 (If degenerate) Fourfold BUT

4
“Vernier” spectrum ? W. Izumida et al,: Phys. Rev. B 85, (2012) “Vernier” spectrum Energy level of QD 2- or 4-fold degeneracy Energy band tilting SWNT curvature What is the electronic states in finite length carbon nanotubes? Motivation Standing wave ・・・ K-left-going + K’-right-going ? ππ Quantum dot
