We present a review of recent fundamental research on carbon nanotubes, with the goal of realizing future nanometer-scale electronic applications. Since nanotubes are by nature nanometer-scale devices with remarkable electrical properties, they are expected to be an important element in nanometer-scale electronics. As preliminary steps towards realizing nanotube-electronics, we have investigated the formation mechanism of metal contacts to carbon nanotubes, nanotube device fabrication possibilities, and nanotube spin electronics.
