This paper reviews recent investigations of the electronic structure and the optical properties of intercalated single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and C 60 filled SWCNTs (peapods) using electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) in transmission as a probe. The results from these one-dimensional nanostructures are compared to C 60 fullerides and intercalated graphite, which are well understood prototypes of carbon-based intercalation compounds. In detail, the structural changes were analysed bydoi:10.1088/1367-2630/5/1/156 fatcat:2a35utqm4zb2lmkbajiq7ewvui
