Abstract

We report studies of optical Fabry-Perot microcavities based on semiconducting single-wall carbon nanotubes with a quality factor of 160. We experimentally demonstrate a huge photoluminescence signal enhancement by a factor of 30 in comparison with the identical film and by a factor of 180 if compared with a thin film containing non-purified (8,7) nanotubes. Furthermore, the spectral full-width at half-maximum of the photo-induced emission is reduced down to 8 nm with very good directivity at a wavelength of about 1.3 µm. Such results prove the great potential of carbon nanotubes for photonic applications.

Left: Schematic diagram of the Fabry-Perot microcavity constituted by two Bragg mirrors and the s-SWNT layer. Green(light) and red(dark) beams represent the pump and the emission beams, respectively. Right: SEM picture of the bottom Bragg mirror edge, displaying the alternate multilayer-stack of SiO2/Si3N4 and the top s-SWNT layer.

Photoluminescence map of the s-SWNT thin layer: (a) without insertion into an optical cavity, (b) with insertion, and (c) after normalization by the Bragg mirror transmission. For clarity, each map intensity was normalized to 1.
