Abstract

A review of theoretical results on electromagnetic properties of carbon nanotubes, including the linear electrodynamics of nanotubes, nonlinear transport, and optical effects in nanotubes, and foundations of the quantum electrodynamics is given. The method of effective boundary conditions is shown to be a universal tool for studying a wide range of nanotube electrodynamics problems. The conception of the nanotube as an infrared surface wave nanowaveguide is developed. The high-efficiency generation of high-order harmonics in the nanotubes under the action of strong pumping fields is predicted. It is shown that, in a strong static field, the nanotubes exhibit the negative differential conductivity. The formalism of electrodynamics of lossy dispersive media is applied to the problem of spontaneous radiation of an excited atom in the carbon nanotube. Some open problems of the nanotube electrodynamics are discussed.
