Nanohybrids for Photonic Devices: Encapsulation of Conjugated Oligomers in Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes: Towards Nanohybrids for Photonic Devices (Adv. Mater. 14/2010)
Maria Antonietta Loi and co-workers report on p. 1635 on single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs)/organic hybrids, which may be used as photon sources in future optoelectronic devices. The nanohybrids are “peapods” having sexithiophene molecules inside the hollow space of SWNTs. HRTEM and optical probe measurements show evidence of the encapsulation while density functional calculations confirm the experimental findings and provide deeper insight into the stability and electronic properties of these systems.
