Nonlinear magnetotransport in interacting chiral nanotubes.

De Martino, A., Egger, R. & Tsvelik, A. M. (2006). Nonlinear magnetotransport in interacting chiral nanotubes.. Physical Review Letters (PRL), 97(7), article number 076402. doi: 10.1103/physrevlett.97.076402


Nonlinear transport through interacting single-wall nanotubes containing a few impurities is studied theoretically. Extending the Luttinger liquid theory to incorporate trigonal warping and chirality effects, we derive the current contribution Ie even in the applied voltage V and odd in an orbital magnetic field B, which is nonzero only for chiral tubes and in the presence of interactions.
