Abstract

In situ measurement of tip-enhanced near-field Raman spectra of an isolated single-wall carbon nanotube (SWNT) bundle has been demonstrated by applying a uniaxial pressure up to similar to 2 GPa to the bundle via a metal-coated atomic force microscope tip. We investigated the pressure dependences of Raman frequencies and the intensity of the radial breathing mode bands, the D-band and the G-band, which were related to deformation of SWNTs caused by the tip pressure.
