ABSTRACT
We report observation of the Coulomb blockade effect in a metal-on-tube metal/multiwall carbon nanotube (MWNT)/metal structure (metal=Ti or Pt/Au). We find that the tunnel barrier is located in the interface between the MWNT and the metal electrode, and that the tunnel resistance depends crucially on the electrode material. A possible origin of the high contact barrier is discussed. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

    It has been inferred for several years that the wear of a carbon brush at a sliding interface of a dc machine is influenced by chemical factors. Previously, the difficulties of isolating and measuring chemical factors in such circumstances have discouraged specific verification. An apparatus is...
