Spectroscopy and FunctionalizationSee also: Optical properties of carbon nanotubes
SWNTs have unique optical and spectroscopic properties largely due to one-dimensional confinement of electronic and phonon states, resulting in so-called van Hove singularities in the nanotube density of states (DOS).
