Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Functionalization methods for single-wall carbon nanotubes have been developed, and through such techniques a variety of intermolecular and interface interactions can be envisaged. Moreover, the incorporation of functionalized SWNTs into composite matrices has been achieved and substantial mechanical reinforcement demonstrated. The studies of carbon nanotubes by fluorescence spectroscopy have contributed into clarifying that there are no fluctuations in the radiation intensity coming from the isolated nanotubes, which makes them as potentially infrared stable photon sources with a very narrow bandwidth.
