Abstract

We describe a dielectric resonator-based measurement method for determining the electrical conductivity of carbon nanotubes and nanowires at microwave to millimeter frequencies. This measurement method is not limited by the contract resistance or impedance mismatch commonly encountered in the measurement of single nanotubes. The measurements yield conductivitie of approximately $0.18$ S/m.
