Transformed aerogels: From amorphous carbon to nanocrystalline diamond

By Eileen De Guire / June 1, 2011

Laser-heated diamond anvil cell allows very large hydrostatic pressure to be applied to amorphous carbon aerogels. Cavity dimensions are approximately 100–170 μm wide by 35 μm thick. Credit: LLNL. While there has been considerable interest in capturing the properties of diamond in a low-density form, converting an amorphous carbon aerogel to a crystalline phase without…
