Title: A Framework for Computing Transport Properties of Carbon Nanotube-based Conductance Biochemical Sensors
Author: Roman, C.; Ciontu, F.; Courtois, B.
Abstract: carbon nanotubes, conductance sensors, biochemical detection, renormalization flows, congruence transformations, quantum conductanceIn this paper we present a framework for fast quantum conductance calculations of carbon nanotube-based sensing devices targeting aromatic amino acids within a tight binding approximation. The method begins by a novel parameterization procedure based on isospectral matrix flows. With the properly parameterized Hamiltonian we employ a linearly scaling algorithm to compute the quantum conductance in the coherent transport regime. A few conclusions are presented regarding the suitability of carbon nanotubes in aromatic amino acid detection.
