We propose a new type of nano-junction, called HCS, which is made of a single carbon element, and can be looked as carbon atomic chain inserted into half of a single walled carbon nanotube. Using the tight-binding Green's function method, we report in detail the transport properties
of (5,5) HCS, (8,0) HCS and (9,0) HCS. It is found that the conductance of the HCS is always smaller than the conductance of the perfect carbon nanotube and tube encapsulated chain structure. For (5,5) HCS, it has a nonzero conductance at the Fermi energy and the transmission has a resonant
structure while the spectra of (5,5) single walled carbon nanotube and (5,5) tube encapsulated chain structure show step like feature. Though the (8,0) tube encapsulated chain structure possess a nonzero conductance at the Fermi energy, the conductance of (8,0) HCS drop to zero at the same
energy region. For (9,0) HCS, there is also a gap in the conductance, which is different with that of tube encapsulating all chain structure.
