Abstract. The ultrafast laser ablation of a carbon target in ambient Ar gas at a pressure of 1–100 Torr resulted in the formation of a low-density (2-10)×103 g/cm3 cluster-assembled carbon nanofoam with a significant fraction of sp3-bonding and a resistivity of (1-3)×109 Ω cm at room temperature, similar to that of diamond-like carbon film. In this paper we present the structural analysis of the foam based on TEM and SEM images as well as X-ray scattering data and electron energy loss spectra. 
Unconventional Magnetism in All-Carbon Nanofoam
We report production of nanostructured magnetic carbon foam by a high-repetition-rate, high-power laser ablation of glassy carbon in Ar atmosphere. A combination of characterization techniques
Positive Magnetisation in Carbon Nanoclusters Produced by High-Repetition-Rate Laser Ablation
Carbon nanoclusters produced by high-repetition-rate laser ablation of graphite and glassy carbon in Ar exhibits para- and ferromagnetic behaviour at low temperature. The results show that the degree
