Noise properties of an individual and two crossing multiwalled carbon nanotubes Academic Article uri icon


  • The noise properties at room temperature of multiwalled carbon nanotubes under forward bias, for frequencies between 10 Hz10 kHz, have been investigated. The noise measurements were made for one individual multiwalled carbon nanotube (1MW) and two crossing multiwalled carbon nanotubes (2CMW). The excess noise found in 1MW is consistently 1/f-like. However, 2CMW shows higher noise level, and the noise spectrum has an unusual dependence on the current. The main origin of noise in 2CMW was attributed to the diffusion noise.
