Paper Abstract

Carbon nanotube is an interesting materials as a unique 1D nanosize structure. We have tried to prepare 1D C60 nanostructures confined in the zeolite 'FSM-16' which have 1D holes of the diameter of 2.7 nanometers. 1D C60 embedded in the holes in FSM-16 show new photoluminescence which peak energy is shifted about 0.1 eV higher than that of normal C60 films. The shift of the photoluminescence can be explained by the quantum size effect of the C60 confined to 1D holes. To prepare good samples, it is necessary to effuse out the absorbed gases in FSM-16. The results of gas effusion spectra until 1000 degrees C to clarify the properties of absorbed gases in FSM-16 are also shown and discussed to get good samples without the effect of absorbed gases.
