Abstract [en]

This work is aimed at characterization of the carbon nanotube (CNT) distribution in polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA)-CNT composites by high-resolution Raman spectroscopy. In particular, we focus on study of the boundary regions between the CNT aggregates and the surrounding areas where the CNTs are well dispersed in the PMMA matrix. Different laser excitation energies (1.96 and 2.33 eV) were used to preferentially probe metallic and semiconducting SWCNTs, respectively. At both photon energies, spectral line scans across the boundary regions were performed revealing a substantial drop in intensity of G+ CNT Raman mode and an increase of the D/G+-intensity ratio. The latter testifies to a preferential dispersion of functionalized CNTs in the PMMA matrix. Certain inhomogeneities were observed by Raman spectral imaging even in the areas with well-dispersed CNTs.
