Femtosecond Laser Synthesis of Polymorphic Diamond from Highly Oriented Pyrolytic Graphite

Abstract:

Article Preview

We synthesized polymorphic diamond directly from highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) using femtosecond laser driven shock wave without catalyst. A femtosecond laser pulse (wavelength: 800 nm, pulse width: 120 fs, intensity: 2×1015 W/cm2) was irradiated onto the HOPG surface in air. Crystalline structures of HOPG after the laser irradiation were analyzed using the synchrotron X-ray at the BL13XU in the SPring-8. We found that the hexagonal diamond exists in the HOPG which was irradiated by the femtosecond laser normal to the basal plane.
