Abstract

The electron transport through a carbon nanotube (CNT) double barrier junction exposed to an external electromagnetic field is studied. The electron spectrum in the quantum well (QW) formed by the junction bears relativistic features. We examine how the ac field affects the level quantization versus the ac field parameters and chirality. We find that the transport through the junction changes dramatically versus the ac field frequency and amplitude. These changes are pronounced in the junctions differential conductance, which allows judgment about the role of relativistic effects in the CNT QW structures.
