Abstract [sv]

A resonant Raman spectroscopy study has been carried out under high pressure, using a diamond anvil cell,

on carbon nanotube peapods (C60@SWNT) synthesized in high yield in our laboratory. The Raman signal was

excited by a near IR laser (830 nm) to avoid photopolymerization of C60 and thus obtain the intrinsic vibrational

information on the C60 molecules in the nanotubes. It is found that the surrounding tubes create an

effective pressure on the encapsulated C60 due to tube-fullerene interactions, resulting in a shift of the intrinsic

Ag(2) vibrational mode to 1474 cm−1 at ambient pressure. High pressure Raman spectroscopy indicates that

(C60)2 dimers form near 1 GPa, and that a further polymerization of C60 occurs near 23 GPa, creating linear

chains of covalently linked C60 molecules in the tubes.
