Abstract

In situ resonance Raman scattering of single-walled carbon nanotubes investigated under electrochemical biasing demonstrates that the intensity of the radial breathing mode varies significantly in a nonmonotonic manner as a function of the cathodic bias voltage, but does not change appreciably under anodic bias. The tangential mode is, however, not affected. These results can be quantitatively understood in terms of the changes in the energy gaps between the one-dimensional van Hove singularities in the electron density of states arising possibly due to the alterations in the overlap integral of pi bonds between the p orbitals of the adjacent carbon atoms.
