AbstractWe have measured shot noise in single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) at 4.2K over frequencies f = 600 – 850 MHz. Here we report results obtained on shot noise without DC bias by applying an AC modulation at ω0 and recording the noise variation at 2ω0: the Fano factor is obtained by extrapolating down to zero excitation amplitude. We also discuss the applicability of this method in samples which have strongly non‐linear IV characteristics like carbon nanotubes. The obtained results are compared with regular differential noise measurements where both DC and AC bias are employed.
