Graphite is made up of plane layers of carbon atoms placed at the corners of regular hexagons. Lipson and Stokes1 have shown by means of powder X-ray analysis that in most of the crystals the successive layers have the position…ababa…, although about 15 per cent show the arrangement…abcabcabc… (Fig. 1).

Structure of Graphite
IN the electron diffraction patterns formed by single crystals of graphite (transmission) we have discovered new spots which would be indexed (½00) or (½½0) (and their symmetrical associates) in the
Electron diffraction study of flake graphite extracted from molten pig iron
Single graphite flakes segregated from molten carbon or silicon-rich iron at 1200° to 1500°C were subjected to electron diffraction experiments. The results indicated that the well developed thick
CXXXVIII. Application of dislocation theory to the polytypism of silicon carbide
Abstract Polytypism of silicon carbide can be understood if the assumption is made that the crystal grows out of the primary nucleus as a single sheet several atomic layers in thickness. The sheet
The growth of cavities by vacancy condensation in graphite and the transformation to dislocation loops are theoretically investigated. During the heat treatment of carbonaceous substances for
Patterning and characterization of graphene nano-ribbon by electron beam induced etching
Graphene is one of the most promising candidates to build fu ture electronic devices. Its pecu liar electronic properties derive from its atomic structure and are character ized by a two-dimensional
Early Times of Electron Microscopy in Geneva (1944 to 1964)
The early electron microscopy in Geneva starts with Jean Weigle*, Professor of Physics. He had been before at the University of Pittsburgh and was what one calls today a solid-state physicist. He was
Rolling up graphene oxide sheets through solvent-induced self-assembly in dispersions.
This facile approach, which is also feasible by using other organic solvents such as ethanol, can be used to fabricate GO nanoscrolls for large scale applications in supercapacitors, sensors and other devices.
Fabrication et caractérisation de nano-rubans de graphène par gravure électronique directe
Le graphene est l'un des candidats les plus prometteurs pour la fabrication des futurs dispositifs electroniques. Ses remarquables proprietes electroniques decoulent de sa structure atomique et sont
Die rhomboedrische Modifikation des Graphits
In 23 Vorkommen von polykristallinem Naturgraphit wurde der Gehalt an rhomboedrischer Modifikation zwischen 0 und 30 Gew.-% gefunden. In 66 Graphiteinkristallen und Kristallfasern, wurde
