Abstract

This chapter is focused on the unique electrical, optical, mechanical, thermal and vibrational properties of carbon nanotubes. Reader’s get an insight of how these unique properties of carbon nanotubes can be functional to various applications. Each of these properties are being emphasized with some basic definitions, equations, and references from published literatures. This chapter also discusses the property changes observed in CNTs due to their structural differences as in single walled and multiwalled CNTs.

Keywords:

CNT, Electrical properties, Mechanical properties, MWNT, Optical properties, Properties, SWNT, Thermal properties.
