dc.description.abstract The design and performance of an instrument is presented whose purpose is the extraction of samples highly enriched in one species of single-walled carbon nanotubes from density gradient ultracentrifugation. This instrument extracts high purity samples which are characterized by various optical studies. The samples are found to be enriched in just a few species of nanotubes, with the major limitation to enrichment being the separation, rather than extraction. The samples are then used in optical and microscopic studies which attempt to determine the first absorption coefficient (S1) of the (6,5) species of nanotube. Initial experiments give a value of 9.2 ± 2.6 cm2 C atom-1. Future work is proposed to improve upon the experiment in an attempt to reduce possible errors
