Paper Abstract

Photoluminescence spectra of C60 crystals with high quality was measured before and after the mechanical deformation . New peak at 685 nm appeared after the deformation. The peak was observed only at temperatures lower than about 90 K, where its intensity decrease with increasing temperature. The temperature dependence of the peak intensity was correlated with that of main other peak at 735 nm, which would originate in intrinsic C60 crystals. From these result, the origin of the peak at 685 nm is discussed in the light of crystal defects, especially dislocations.
