Abstract

Modification of the band structure of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) through encapsulation of the inorganic material manganese ditelluride (MnTe2) is reported. We show that this leads to a global reduction of their 1st (E11S) and 2nd (E22S) band gap energies by a similar percentage (up to 3.8%) and interpret this as due to a lowering of the carbon-carbon transfer integrals.
