ELECTROMAGNETIC SCATTERING BY MULTI-WALL CARBON NANOTUBES

Abstract:
We provide here a theoretical description of electromagnetic scattering by multi-wall carbon nanotubes based on an effective-boundary condition derived previously using a phenomenological quantum model. We present the basic analytical solution, extending it then to include the electromangetic interaction between multiple concentric tubes in the general multi-wall carbon nanotube case.
