Abstract

Nanowires of Au, Ag, Pt, and Pd (1.0-1.4 nm diam) have been produced in the capillaries of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). The nanowire is single-crystalline in some cases. Dispersions of the nanowires in alcohol show longitudinal plasmon absorption bands at different wavelengths, suggesting the presence of a distribution of aspect ratios. A novel phenomenon involving the intercalation of metal layers $(\sim 0.5 nm$ thick) in the intertubular space of SWNT bundles has been observed. SWNTs decorated by metal nanoparticles are formed in some of the preparations.
