We report on electron transport measurements in high-quality carbon nanotube devices with a total transmission of about 1.5 e2/h. At high temperatures the linear conductance exhibits moderate oscillations as a function of the gate voltage around an average value of the order the quantum of conductance. Upon decreasing temperature, we observe an intriguing fourfold increase in the period of the oscillations accompanied by an enhancement in their amplitude. This temperature dependence is rather unusual. On the one hand, the high temperature oscillations are suggestive of charging effects in an open carbon nanotube quantum dot. On the other hand the low temperature transport characteristics is reminiscent of single-particle Fabry-Pérot interference in a carbon nanotube waveguide. We reconcile these observations by attributing the four-fold increase to the interplay of resonant tunneling, interaction and quantum fluctuations, leading to an SU(4) Kondo-like enhancement in open quantum dots systems. Our work provides a comprehensive phenomenology of transport in nanotubes when both interference and interaction are involved.
