Abstract

We present femtosecond mid-infrared (mid-IR) studies of the broadband low-energy response of individualized (6,5) and (7,5) single-walled carbon nanotubes. Strong photoinduced absorption is observed in these semiconducting tubes around 200 meV photon energy. The transition energy and broadly sloping spectral shape are characteristic of quasi-1D intra-excitonic transitions between different relative-momentum states. Our result yields a value of the intra-excitonic absorption cross section of σMIR|| ≈ 4 × 10-15 cm2.
