Abstract

A set of electrodynamic effects in carbon nanotubes (CNTs) - quasi-one-dimensional carbon macromolecules - is considered in the wide spectral range. A tight relation between problems of traditional macroscopic electrodynamics and electrodynamics of quasi-one-dimensional nanostructures is demonstrated. The inter-complementary characters of two key factors inherent in nanostructures - the spatial confinement of the charge carriers' motion and the nanoscale nonhomogeneity of electromagnetic fields - is pointed out and illustrated. Potential applications of an isolated CNT such as monomolecular nanowaveguide, nanoantenna, travelling wave tube, are discussed.
