Abstract

We have studied electrical transport characteristics of individual double-wall carbon nanotubes (DWNT) under high bias voltages. As the bias voltage applied to the carbon nanotubes increases, the outermost shell of the DWNTs broke down sequentially, which enabled us to determine the current-carrying capacity of each shell. The maximum current-carrying capacity per shell was about 150 μA, which is well above that of any other previous reports.
