Raman spectroscopy is used to infer elastic properties of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) in composites. This letter presents strain-induced frequency shift of tangential Raman active modes of SWNTs embedded in epoxy resin subjected to bending. Epoxy curing and sample extension in the tensile strength test are found to create residual strains on the SWNT ropes. We demonstrate that specimen compression in combination with the Raman microprobe technique provides a means for determining of these strains and hence load transfer effectiveness. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

    Although quantum dots (QDs) are widely used as fluorophores they have not so far been used as Raman labels. Here we demonstrate (resonant) surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) of CdSe QDs attached to nanostructured plasmonic surfaces. The 208 cm-1 CdSe longitudinal optical phonon mode is...
