The photophysical properties of cryogenic carbon nanotubes are dominated by exciton localization. As exciton localization is commonly accompanied by exciton polarization, localized carbon nanotube excitons are particularly sensitive to electrostatic fluctuations in their immediate environment. We will discuss the realm of environmental effects observed in cryogenic spectroscopy of individual carbon nanotubes in different dielectric environments.
