The same holds for the overlap matrix elements between the two (A and B) massless subbands (crossing at the Fermi level). A common approximation of solid state theory is that the spatial variation of a (long–range) external potential is small at the scale of a unit cell (effective mass theorem). The matrix element of the potential is therefore a product of the unit cell overlap integral and the Fourier component of the potential: ψ|U |ψ = ϕ|ϕ Uq . 39) It is evident that this approximation leads to zero scattering (and also mixing, see below) between two closest subbands of the armchair tube as ϕ|ϕ ≡ 0.

53 eV, both the conduction band bottom and the valence band top shift away from the original Fermi point k = 0 and the gap closes. At fields larger than the critical field the gap opens again. The critical field strength Ec is inversely proportional to R2 , as in the case of a quasi–metallic nanotube. We note that for two different types of semiconductor SWNTs (mentioned in the Introduction) the weak field regime is different. 7 V/˚ A. In contrast, the gap of a [19,0] SWNT will monotonically decrease with the field [47].

2 eV from top to bottom) is presented (see Color Plates, p. 2 eV (from top to bottom). For other families at lower temperatures T =77 K and 4 K this effect is even sharper. 5 Results and Discussion Next we discuss the OFF/ON ratio of our proposed METFET and show that the theoretical limit for a specific design of SWNT METFET’s can be as small as 10−6 . 11 shows the room temperature (300 K) ballistic current through a METFET as a function of the gap, Eg (which is proportional to the gate voltage).
