Abstract

A strong optical Stark effect has been observed in (6,5) semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes by femtosecond pump-probe spectroscopy. The response is characterized by an instantaneous blueshift of the excitonic resonance upon application of pump radiation at photon energy well below the band gap. The large Stark effect is attributed to the enhanced Coulomb interactions present in these one-dimensional materials.
