Resonant Raman scattering (RRS) measurements made with a tunable laser provide a highly reliable technique to study the shape of the joint density of electronic states (JDOS) of isolated single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). RRS can be used to determine the energy value for the one-dimensional (1D) van Hove singularities of a SWNT with a precision better than 5 meV, thereby providing important information that could be used for subsequent measurements on this same SWNT. With RRS, the measured width of the JDOS is on the order of ∼0.1 - 1.0 meV, further demonstrating that SWNTs really provide a remarkably good model for 1D mesoscopic systems.
