We report strong and brilliant visible light emission from well-aligned multiwalled carbon nanotube (AMWNT) films under infrared (IR) laser irradiation with wavelength at 1.06 and 10.6 μm, respectively. The AMWNT film shows a high durability against laser irradiation and achieved a conversion from IR laser to visible light. It is a good candidate for optical converter. Light emission spectra versus different wavelengths and various powers were found to have similar line shapes. It could be explained as combination of laser-induced photoluminescence and resistive heating.
