    Using a tight-binding model and the Landauer–Büttiker formalism, we have calculated the current–voltage characteristics of a semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotube and that of a fullerene (C[sub 60])-doped carbon nanotube (peapod) structure. Our calculation shows that...

    Abstract.??We examine, by means of scaling analysis tools and three-dimensional numerical simulations, the time and spatial scales of transport and mixing processes during the cooling phase of the ice-free period in La Caldera, a small lake located at 3,050 m.a.s.l. in Sierra Nevada (Southern...
