Abstract

Nonlinear optical properties of colloidal systems containing single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) disperse in different surfactants are investigated. Thermal nonlinearity management Z-scan technique was performed to measure the nonlinear refractive index (n2) of colloidal system. The results presented in this letter show that the presence of SWNT enhances significantly the electronic nonlinear responses of the colloid and that the surfactants play an important role in the determination of electronic part of n2.

Raman spectra of CoMoCat and CoNiFe SWNTs. These results were obtained from the as-grown samples, without surfactant and with 514.5 nm excitation laser line. These spectra present the contribution of the SWNT species whose optical transitions are in resonance with the excitation laser line.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

UV-VIS-NIR absorption spectra of CoMoCat SWNT disperse in NaC (a) and NADDBS (b), and CoNiFe SWNT disperse in NaC (c) and NADDBS (d). Inset to (a) shows the absorption resonance area and the background area of the absorption spectrum of CoMoCat disperse in NaC.

Fig. 3

Thermally managed Z-scan measurement for the colloid consisting of 0.2 mg/ml CoNiFe SWNT using NaDDBS as surfactant. (a) Complete temporal evolution of the Z-scan curve. (b) Z-scan measurements at time instants t = 80 µs (black curve) and at t = 300 µs (red curve). Inset: open-aperture Z-scan measurement. The laser average power was 100 mW at the sample position.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Reconstruction of Z-scan curves were obtained in t = 0 s. (a) and (c) show the reconstructed Z-scan curves using CoMoCat SWNT disperse in NaDDBS and NaC, respectively. (b) and (d) show the same reconstruction using only the surfactants NaDDBS and NaC in aqueous solution, respectively. Squares correspond to experimental results; the solid curve is a fit obtained from Eq. (2).
