Abstract

Probing order in nanotube systems is of fundamental importance in devising applications of these tubes in field emission applications as well as components of composite materials. We demonstrate near-edge X-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) spectroscopy as a particularly useful and effective technique for qualitatively and quantitatively studying the nature of order in a wide range of carbon-based systems, including graphite, single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) powder, SWNT films, and aligned multi-walled carbon nanotubes.
