Abstract

We present two-photon excitation luminescence experiments on carbon nanotubes which show the excitonic origin of the optical excitations. The two-photon allowed exciton state, which has even parity under rotation about the U-axis, is roughly 300 meV above the one-photon active, odd-parity state. This indicates exciton binding energies on the order of 400 meV for nanotubes with diameters around 8 A. Ab-initio calculations of the exciton wavefunctions and energies are in good agreement with our experimental results, confirming the predictions on the symmetry of the exciton states.
