Abstract: In this experimental work, SWCNT nanopowder was prepared and irradiated by the mono-energetic (10 MeV) electron beams in different doses of 0-100 kGy in the air environment. The samples were subjected to Raman spectroscopy to determine the defects created in the material. Two main peaks of G-band at 1344 cm-1, and D-band at 1574 cm-1 were detected respectively. The maximum discrepancy in the ID/IG value in comparison with the pristine sample was 7.1 % at 50 kGy, implying that SWCNTs can be used in electronic devices with potential applications in aircrafts and satellites.
