ABSTRACT
We observed an ambipolar behavior in multiwalled carbon nanotubes in a backgate configuration, which allowed us to perform systematic inspection of the low-temperature transport properties against gate voltage. The results revealed that a power-law temperature-dependent conductance, which is a sign of an unconventional metallic state, disappears when a high gate voltage is applied, and conductance becomes temperature independent, indicating a normal Fermi liquid state. This demonstrates a field effect tuning of electronic states in nanoscaled materials.

    The results of experimental research on a strongly interacting two-dimensional Fermi liquid in silicon field-effect structures are briefly reviewed. By extrapolation of the experimental data from the metallic region it is concluded that the effective mass of the electrons diverges and the total...

    The self-organizing properties of nematic liquid crystals (LCs) can be used to align carbon nanotubes (CNTs) dispersed in them. In the previous paper [P. van der Schoot, V. Popa-Nita, and S. Kralj, J. Phys. Chem. B 112, 4512 (2008)], we have considered the weak anchoring limit of the nematic LC...

    Recently, it has been possible to design independently contacted electron-hole bilayers (EHBLs) with carrier densities < 5×1010 cm2 in each layer and a separation of 10-20 nm in a GaAs/AlGaAs system. In these EHBLs, the interlayer interaction can be stronger than the intralayer interactions....

    Over the past several decades, Luttinger-liquid theory has a framework for interacting electrons in one dimension. However, the validity of the theory is strictly limited to low-energy excitations where the electron dispersion is linear. Interacting electrons in one-dimension beyond the...
