Abstract: The theoretical modelling improves the knowledge of matter at nanoscale and utilizing the results of experimental research brings continuously new details to be experimentally verified. It has been recently appeared a new “time-domain” Drude-Lorentz-like model for classical and quantum transport in nanosystems, which demonstrates high generality and good fitting with experimental data of literature. It allows interesting applications in the field of nanostructured materials, for biological and medical applications, as well as in nano-bio-sensoristics. I use this model considering interesting details of Carbon Nanotubes, in relation to variations of parameters, like temperature and effective mass of electrons and in comparison with other important nanomaterials of current scientific and technological use.


Keywords: Carbon nanotubes, Diffusion, Nano-bio-sensors, Nano-bio-materials, Theoretical modeling
