Extracting the single-particle gap in Carbon nanotubes with Lattice Quantum Monte Carlo
We show how lattice Quantum Monte Carlo simulations can be used to calculate electronic properties of carbon nanotubes in the presence of strong electron-electron correlations. We employ the path-integral formalism and use methods developed within the lattice QCD community for our numerical work. We compare our results to empirical data of the Mott gap in large diameter tubes.
