Abstract

We study a single-wall carbon nanotube (SWNT) sample grown by water-assisted chemical vapor deposition with both resonance Raman scattering (RRS) and high resolution transmission electron microscopy. High resolution transmission electron microscopy measurements of 395 SWNTs determined the diameter distribution of the sample, allowing us to calibrate an RRS radial breathing mode (RBM) map obtained with 51 laser excitation energies from 1.26 to 1.73 eV. Thus, we determined the diameter dependence of the RRS RBM cross-section, which in turn allows the determination of the diameter distribution of any SWNT sample by measuring the RBM Raman signal.
