Edge structures of carbon materials such as zigzag and armchair edges are known to affect their chemical and electronic properties. Although infrared spectroscopy (IR) has been known to be capable of identifying such edge structures, quantitative analysis using IR spectra has been conducted using only out-of-plane sp2C-H bending vibration, and the estimation of the percentage of edges is still challenging. In this work, a novel two-dimensional method to quantify edge structures of carbon…
