Abstract: In semiconducting carbon nanotube quantum dots that contain a few interacting electrons the electron-electron correlation is always important. The states of up to six interacting electrons in such a dot are calculated by exact diagonalisation of a 2-band, effective mass Hamiltonian. The addition energy and the few-electron density are investigated for a wide range of dots with different physical properties and, in a large proportion of these dots, the electrons are found to form Wigner molecules.
