Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) were subjected to alkylation using alkyl bromide and alkyl dibromide, and the photoluminescence (PL) properties of the resulting alkylated SWNTs were characterized. Two new PL peaks were observed along with the intrinsic PL peak at 976 nm when alkyl bromide was used (SWNT-Bu: ∼1095 and 1230 nm, SWNT-Bn: 1104 and 1197(More)
Photoluminescence phenomena normally obey Stokes' law of luminescence according to which the emitted photon energy is typically lower than its excitation counterparts. Here we show that carbon nanotubes break this rule under one-photon excitation conditions. We found that the carbon nanotubes exhibit efficient near-infrared photoluminescence upon(More)
