Paper Abstract

Near-field Raman scattering has been successfully utilized to study the interaction between a metal-coated nano-tip and carbon nanostructures, such as carbon-60 molecules and single walled carbon nanotubes. The enhanced and localized light field in the vicinity of the tip apex provides high resolution imaging as well as the detection of weak vibrational modes. Apart from the electromagnetic and chemical interactions, a mechanical interaction between tip molecules and the sample molecules has also been investigated.
