Optical activity was observed in films of vertically aligned single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) that were grown by catalytic CVD on quartz plate. We report the control of both the polarization state and transmission of incoming light at 1550nm by azimuthal and axial tilting of SWNT film about its aligned axis.
