This paper deals with the electromagnetic macroscopic modelling of carbon nanotube interconnects and antennas. The conduction electrons of the nanotube are considered as a two-dimensional fluid moving on the surface representing the positive ion lattice. The linearized Euler’s equation describing the fluid motion is used as a macroscopic constitutive relationship to be coupled to Maxwell’s equation. A surface integral formulation coupled to the fluid model is solved numerically using a finite element method. For peculiar geometries, a transmission line model for CNT is derived. The proposed formulations are applied to the study of carbon nanotubes to evaluate the possible applications to interconnects and antennas.

Abstract

This paper deals with the electromagnetic macroscopic modelling of carbon nanotube interconnects and antennas. The conduction electrons of the nanotube are considered as a two-dimensional fluid moving on the surface representing the positive ion lattice. The linearized Euler’s equation describing the fluid motion is used as a macroscopic constitutive relationship to be coupled to Maxwell’s equation. A surface integral formulation coupled to the fluid model is solved numerically using a finite element method. For peculiar geometries, a transmission line model for CNT is derived. The proposed formulations are applied to the study of carbon nanotubes to evaluate the possible applications to interconnects and antennas.
