Abstract: Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) exhibit diverse and unique properties. Recently, a surprising feature has been the ignition of nanotubes in the presence of an ordinary camera flash. Here, the authors report that SWNTs, produced via the HiPco process, display strong microwave absorption (1.01 x 10⁻⁵ eV microwave field) with subsequent dramatic light emission, intense heat release, outgassing, and nanotube reconstruction.
