Title: Measurements of the work function of single-walled carbon nanotubes encapsulated by AgI, AgCl, and CuBr using Kelvin probe technique with different kinds of probes

Abstract

We report the results on the measurements of the work function of single-walled carbon nanotubes encapsulated by Agl (AgI@SWCNT), AgCl (AgCl@SWCNT), and CuBr (CuBr@SWCNT) by the local Kelvin probe technique. We found the values of the work function of tubes encapsulated with AgI and AgCl (Φ(AgI@SWCNT) = 5.08 ± 0.02, Φ(AgCl@SWCNT) = 5.10 ± 0.02 eV) to exceed substantially that of pristine carbon nanotubes, and the value of the work function of carbon nanotubes encapsulated with CuBr is Φ(CuBr@SWCNT) = 4.89 ± 0.03 (eV). The measurements are carried out using different kinds of microscope probes including multi-walled carbon nanotube tips.
