OHIO Team Shows Existence of Three-Dimensional Phases of Amorphous Graphene

This image represents an 800-atom FEAR model of amorphous carbon at density 0.95 gm/cc. Spheres represent carbon atoms. Orange atoms are members of amorphous graphene subnetwork.

By Amanda Biederman NQPI editorial intern A team of Ohio University researchers and their collaborators used a theoretical model to characterize the physical properties of certain samples of amorphous carbon and showed that these materials are, in fact, connected and distorted fragments of amorphous graphene in an article published in […]
