We have investigated the adsorption of atomic hydrogen on vertically aligned SWNT film. The effects of hydrogen adsorption were investigated by photoelectron spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy. By fitting C 1s core level spectrum, we found the component attributed to hydrogenation of carbon. The suppression of $$pi$$ plasmons was also found. These results indicate that hydrogen adsorption induced bonding structure deformation. Raman spectra demonstrate that the radial-breathing-mode intensity of small-diameter SWNTs is more severely decreased than that of large-diameter SWNTs. The G-band/D-band ratio also decreased after the irradiation. These results indicate the disordering of graphene on small-diameter SWNTs is induced more easily. Our results indicate that the adsorption coefficient of hydrogen atoms for SWNTs with small diameter is higher than that for SWNTs with large diameter.
