Inter-tube transfer of electrons in various double-wall carbon nanotubes

Conductance for inter-tube transfer in double-wall carbon nanotubes is calculated in a tight-binding model. The conductance remains extremely small with fluctuations around an averaged value independent of the tube length. This can be regarded as a direct manifestation of quasi-periodic nature of the system in the conductance.
