We have investigated the electronic structure of one and two-dimensional C60 polymers with regard to both their low-lying excitations and C 1s excitation spectra by means of electron energy-loss spectroscopy in transmission. We compare the results with those for pristine C60. In general, the spectra for the polymers resemble those for pristine C60 but show a broadening due to both the lowering of the symmetry and the increased intermolecular overlap. This is also reflected by a reduction of the optical gap in comparison with pristine C60.
