We present a study of a electronic transport through a carbon nanotube quantum dot coupled to superconducting contacts. By increasing the temperature above 300mK additional transport features are observed in the stability diagrams. They appear as lines in the Coulomb blockade region, and are attributed to sequential tunneling of thermally excited quasiparticles. Whenever two of these lines cross at zero bias, a conductance peak is observed. In particular, we observe two of these peaks in the vicinity of the charge degeneracy point. The nature of these lines as well as their temperature dependence can be explained by a transport theory based on a generalized master equation approach to lowest order in the tunnel coupling [1].
