Trions and sp3-Defects in Single-walled Carbon Nanotubes for Optoelectronics

Project description

New approaches to tailor the properties of low-dimensional semiconductors

Single-walled carbon nanotubes are nanoscopic cylinders of graphene with different diameters and characteristics. Their remarkable properties – such as high electrical conductivity and emission in the near-infrared wavelength range with narrow and diameter-dependent linewidths – render them useful for diverse applications, including optical data transmission and bioimaging. The recent idea of using specific defects and covalently attached molecular groups to functionalise semiconducting single-wall carbon nanotubes allows researchers to tailor their charge transport and light emission properties for use in practical devices. The EU-funded TRIFECTs project aims to systematically manipulate the properties of neutral and charged single-walled carbon nanotubes by introducing specific defects.
