LANL News:

  • In the study, a collaborative research team showed that Raman spectroscopy (a form of light scattering) can provide more extensive characterization of intertube excitons.

Nanotechnology researchers studying small bundles of carbon nanotubes have discovered an optical signature showing excitons bound to a single nanotube are accompanied by excitons tunneling across closely interacting nanotubes.
