Abstract

The encapsulation of alkali-metal or halogen inside single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) can be realized by a novel alkali-halogen plasma irradiation method. According to electronic transport measurements, it is found that a p-type semiconductor behavior can be strongly improved by encapsulating iodine atoms. Furthermore, a p-n junction diode-like feature is observed by selective encapsulation of cesium and iodine atoms in one individual SWNT.
