A novel nanomaterial, graphene nanoribbons encapsulated inside single-walled carbon nanotubes (GNR@SWNT), was studied by combined optical methods. This nanomaterial was found to have a bright photoluminescence both in IR and UV-Vis spectral ranges. Its spectral features have a complicated resonant structure different from the features of initial components: coronene molecules and SWNTs. The encapsulation ability appears to correlate strongly with the geometry of SWNTs. A weak interaction between nanotube walls and encapsulated species has been discovered: no evidence of charge or energy transfer has been registered.
