Characterization of Carbon Nanotubes using TERS

Carbon nanotubes are now manufactured in large volumes (several thousand tons per year) and are present in many daily life products ranging from car parts, batteries, and sports equipment, to water filtration systems and boat equipment.
Nevertheless, there is still a long way to go to produce SWCNT (single wall carbon nanotube) in large scale devices with exceptional theoretical electrical and thermal conductivities and mechanical resistance. Additional knowledge is essential for boosting CNT integration into thin film microelectronics, optoelectronics, and medical devices.

Raman spectroscopy is the technique of choice to characterize CNTs and related nano-objects in terms of chirality, diameter, density, length, and presence of defects.
