The carrier transport in carbon nanotube is studied by solving the finite difference equation with standard Newton–Lanforx method. The model provides the basis for ATK software to simulate the electronic and quantum transfer characteristics. The IV characteristic of the carbon nanotube based device was simulated with ATK software. The electrical properties of the device formed by individual nanotube between metal electrodes were characterized at room temperature by measuring current. Those results show that the qualitative features of the simulated IV characteristics agree with the experimental work, which provide the new theoretical methods for the development of canbron nonotube based device.
