In this section, we have reviewed recent experimental results on electrical transport through individual single-wall carbon nanotubes. Nanotubes prove to be a remarkably versatile system for exploring both fundamental physics and promising electronic device applications. Future experiments are expected to reveal other interesting aspects of 1D physics, such as spin-charge separation associated with a Luttinger liquid. It would be of interest to explore transport using ferromagnetic and superconducting contacts and to study the charge dynamics by shot noise measurements across a single impurity.
