Transport measurements on a bundle of single-walled carbon nanotubes have been made below 4.2 K as a function of side gate and source-drain bias voltage. The transport of an individual nanotube is described by the Coulomb blockade effect. The zero-dimensional quantum states of the nanotube become clear for measurements of large bias voltage. In addition, we present preliminary results of microwave application to the SWNT dot, and the results can be qualitatively explained by classical coupling to the dot.
