Using the tight-binding model and Green’s function method, we studied the electronic transport of four kinds of nanotube-graphene junctions. The results show the transport properties depend on both types of the carbon nanotube and graphene nanoribbon, metal or semiconducting. Moreover, the defect at the nanotube-graphene interface did not affect the conductance of the whole system at the Fermi level. In the double junction of nanotube/nanoribbon/nanotube, quasibound states are found, which cause antiresonance and result in conductance dips.
