Paper Abstract

Single-walled carbon nanotubes dispersed in a polymer matrix are studied via cw photomodulation spectroscopy. The spectrum is dominated by a modulation of the absorption lineshape, which we assigned to electro-absorption caused by local electric fields arising from trapped photoinduced charges. The lack of selectivity in the excitation and the dominance of the contribution by low energies point to an efficient migration of the photoexcited states, either the singlet excitons or the charges resulting from their dissociation.
