Abstract

Raman spectroscopy has been employed in the study of the high pressure response of metallic single-(SWCNTs) and double-wall carbon nanotubes (DWCNTs). Besides a variety of pressure induced changes, such as the deformation of SWCNTs and the DWCNT outer tubes, as well as the quasi-isolation of the inner tubes, a narrowing of the characteristic Breit-Wigner-Fano Raman peak is also observed. As the width and asymmetry of this peak reflects the coupling of the vibrational mode to an electronic continuum, its pressure induced narrowing can be ascribed to a decoupling process, possibly connected to the enhanced tube-tube interaction and the deformation of the tubes at elevated pressures.
