Physico-Chemical Behavior and Thermo-Optical and Mechanical Properties of Glassy Carbon Up to 2100 K Under Low-Energy Proton and Vacuum Ultraviolet Irradiations
In the frame of mission for the Sun approach, to understand the effects of the heating of the solar corona and the acceleration of the solar winds, research was carried out to study the behavior of
The mechanical response of glassy carbon recovered from high pressure
Glassy carbon (GC) is usually considered the prototypical super-elastic material, which can almost fully recover its shape after compression of several gigapascals (GPa). In this work,
Vitreous Carbon, Geometry and Topology: A Hollistic Approach
The basic tools of topology and geometry at a ground level for 2D surface are presented, special attention is paid to the hyperbolic geometry giving birth to triply periodic minimal surfaces that are the basic tools to understand the GLC network architecture.
Structure and Pore Size Distribution in Nanoporous Carbon
We study the structural and mechanical properties of nanoporous (NP) carbon materials by extensive atomistic machine-learning (ML) driven molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. To this end, we retrain
In Situ Raman Microdroplet Spectroelectrochemical Investigation of CuSCN Electrodeposited on Different Substrates
Systematic in situ Raman microdroplet spectroelectrochemical (Raman-μSEC) characterization of copper (I) thiocyanate (CuSCN) prepared using electrodeposition from aqueous solution on various


Graphitization of Glassy Carbon after Compression at Room Temperature.
Experiments and modeling are used to show permanent densification, and preferred orientation occurs in glassy carbon loaded to 45 GPa and above, where 45  GPa represents the limit to the superelastic and nongraphitizing properties of the material.
Fullerene-related structure of commercial glassy carbons
Glassy carbon is a technologically important material widely used in products such as electrodes and high-temperature crucibles. However, the properties which make glassy carbon so valuable in these
Compressed glassy carbon: An ultrastrong and elastic interpenetrating graphene network
It is shown that a series of lightweight, ultrastrong, hard, elastic, and conductive carbons are recovered after compressing sp2-hybridized glassy carbon at various temperatures and demonstrates potential to access entirely new metastable materials with exceptional properties.
Nanocrystalline hexagonal diamond formed from glassy carbon
It is proposed that the transformation is the result of intense radial plastic flow under compression in the diamond anvil cell, which lowers the energy barrier by “locking in” favourable stackings of graphene sheets.
Synthesis of quenchable amorphous diamond
A bulk sp3-bonded amorphous form of carbon is synthesized under high pressure and temperature, show that it has bulk modulus comparable to crystalline diamond and that it can be recovered under ambient conditions.
Nanoarchitectured materials composed of fullerene-like spheroids and disordered graphene layers with tunable mechanical properties.
It is shown that under both hydrostatic compression and triaxial deformation, this high-strength material is highly compressible and exhibits a superelastic ability to recover from large strains.
