The non-linear length-dependent resistance, R (l), observed in single-wall carbon nanotubes (SNTs) is explained through the recently proposed ionization energy (EI) based Fermi-Dirac statistics (iFDS). The length here corresponds to the carbon atoms number (N) along the SNT. It is also shown that Ry (ly) < Rx (lx) is associated with EIy < EIx, which can be attributed to different conducting properties in their respective y and x directions, or due to chirality. Crown
