Recently the theoretical discovery of single channel quantum dragons has been reported. Quantum dragons are a class of nanodevices that may have strong disorder but still permit energy-independent total quantum transmission of electrons. This thesis illustrates that multi-channel quantum dragons also exit in rectangular nanotubes and provide an approach to construct multi-channel quantum dragons in rectangular nanotubes. Rectangular nanotube multi-channel quantum dragons have been validated by matrix method based quantum transmission calculation. This work could pave the way for constructing multi-channel quantum dragons from more complex nanostructures such as single-walled zigzag carbon nanotubes and single-walled armchair carbon nanotubes.
