Extended contacts to carbon nanotube devices: The role of the geometry and quality of the electrodes

N. Nemec, D. Tomanek, and G. Cuniberti

Summer school on nanotubes

2006.07.03-15; Cargese, Corsica

The carrier injection into a carbon nanotube, contacted by a metal coating over an arbitrary length, is studied by various means: Microscopic ab initio calculations of the nanotube-metal interface allow us to extract --for Ti and Pd as contacting materials-- realistic parameters, which are then used in large scale tight-binding models for transport calculations. A minimal model allows an exact analytic solution which can be related to the original system with high precision. The results are shown to be robust against non-epitaxially grown electrodes and disorder at the interface in general, as well as various refinements of the model.
