Single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) having good optical and electrochemical properties were solublized by aromatic polymers. The polymer-wrapped SWNT film cast from solution showed transient bleaching with a time constant of recovery less than 1 ps in both the visible and optical telecommunication wavelength region. Polymer thin film containing SWNT was assembled into the guided wave mode geometry with a low refractive index polymer.
