The Raman spectra of a new type of graphite whiskers have been measured in the range of $150--7800{\mathrm{cm}}^{\ensuremath{-}1}.$ The intensity of the overtone $(2D)$ located at $\ensuremath{\sim}2700{\mathrm{cm}}^{\ensuremath{-}1}$ is found to be about 10 times stronger than that of the C-C stretching mode (G) at $1582{\mathrm{cm}}^{\ensuremath{-}1}.$ Because of the peculiar enhancement of the $2D$ mode, high-order Raman bands up to fifth order at $\ensuremath{\sim}7500{\mathrm{cm… 

Distinguishing disorder-induced bands from allowed Raman bands in graphite

The nature of the D band in the Raman spectrum of graphite has been the subject of considerable discussion. We examine the relationship between the depolarization characteristics of the D,

Second-order harmonic and combination modes in graphite, single-wall carbon nanotube bundles, and isolated single-wall carbon nanotubes

We report a study of second-order combination and overtone modes in highly ordered pyrolytic graphite (HOPG), in single-wall carbon nanotube (SWNT) bundles and in isolated SWNTs. We found both

Raman Scattering by sp$^2$ Amorphous Carbons

The paper presents a cooperative consideration of Raman spectra of $^2$ amorphous carbons as well as the nature and type of their amorphicity. The latter was attributed to the amorphization of a new

Electron-phonon matrix elements in single-wall carbon nanotubes

We have developed the electron-phonon matrix element in single-wall carbon nanotubes by using the extended tight-binding model based on density functional theory. We calculate this matrix element to

Theory of Graphene Raman Spectroscopy

Raman spectroscopy plays a key role in studies of graphene and related carbon systems. Graphene is perhaps the most promising material of recent times for many novel applications, including

Ultrafast generation of fundamental and multiple-order phonon excitations in highly enriched (6,5) single-wall carbon nanotubes.

A full summary of phonon frequencies for (6,5) nanotubes is provided that can serve as a basic reference with which to refine the understanding of nanotube phonon spectra as well as a testbed for new theoretical models.

Filter-based ultralow-frequency Raman measurement down to 2 cm-1 for fast Brillouin spectroscopy measurement.

This study shows how a filter-based ULF Raman system can be used to reliably achieve Brillouin spectroscopy for condensed materials with high sensitivity and high signal-to-noise ratio, stimulating fast BrillouIn spectrum measurements to probe acoustic phonons in semiconductors.
