The doped sites of locally functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes emit red-shifted and bright near-infrared photoluminescence compared to non-doped nanotubes. Here, we observe unique photoluminescent solvatochromism. Organic solvent environments induce photoluminescent energy shifts that linearly correlate with a solvent polarity function. A high responsiveness at the doped sites is found.
