Direct synthesis of sp-bonded carbon chains on graphite surface by femtosecond laser irradiation
Hu, Aming, Rybachuk, Maksym, Lu, Q-B., & Duley, W.W. (2007) Direct synthesis of sp-bonded carbon chains on graphite surface by femtosecond laser irradiation. Applied Physics Letters, 91(13).
Microscopic phase transformation from graphite to sp-bonded carbon chains (carbyne) and nanodiamond has been induced by femtosecond laser pulses on graphite surface. UV/surface enhanced Raman scattering spectra and x-ray photoelectron spectra displayed the local synthesis of carbyne in the melt zone while nanocrystalline diamond and trans-polyacetylene chains form in the edge area of gentle ablation. These results evidence possible direct "writing" of variable chemical bonded carbons by femtosecond laser pulses for carbon-based applications.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
