Photoluminescence (PL) in the near-infrared (NIR) region is an attractive feature of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). In this study, we investigated the effect of the chemical structure of the cross-linked polymer coating of polymer-coated SWNTs on the NIR PL emission intensity. We found that brighter NIR emission can be achieved using a more hydrophobic polymer coating.
