Spatially anisotropic etching of graphite by hyperthermal atomic oxygen.

Abstract

The spatially anisotropic kinetics involved in the chemical reaction between highly ordered pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) and a beam containing hyperthermal (approximately 8 km s(-1)) O((3)P) atomic oxygen and molecular oxygen yields unique surface morphologies. Upon exposure at moderate sample temperatures (298-423 K), numerous multilayer circular pits… (More)
