Abstract

An electromagnetic macroscopic modelling of CNT is derived. The conduction electrons of the nanotube are considered as a 2D 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 configurations, transmission line-like parameters of CNTs are derived.
