Direct measurement of the absolute absorption spectrum of individual semiconducting single-wall carbon nanotubes.


The optical properties of single-wall carbon nanotubes are very promising for developing novel opto-electronic components and sensors with applications in many fields. Despite numerous studies performed using photoluminescence or Raman and Rayleigh scattering, knowledge of their optical response is still partial. Here we determine using spatial modulation… (More)
