One-dimensional character of combination modes in the resonance Raman scattering of carbon nanotubes.

Resonance Raman spectroscopy with an energy tunable system is used to analyze the 600-1100 cm(-1) spectral region in single-wall carbon nanotubes. Sharp peaks are associated with the combination of zone folded optic and acoustic branches from 2D graphite. These combination modes exhibit a peculiar dependence on the excitation laser energy that is explained… CONTINUE READING
