One-dimensional diffusion-limited relaxation of photoexcitations in suspensions of single-walled carbon nanotubes


Journal Article

We report pump-probe transient absorption spectroscopy on carbon nanotubes with a high initial excitation density. We find that the recovery of the ground state optical absorption is well described by a 1 t relaxation, indicating that the long time population relaxation is controlled by one-dimensional diffusion limited two body recombination. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
