Scan of the damaged diamond sample








Let us focus on two particular plans...



The first one includes Csp3 -Csp3 bonds and the second one includes Csp2-Csp2 bonds...



We can then connect this shot with Csp3 -Csp3 electronic density in perfect diamond and with Csp2 -Csp2 electronic density in perfect graphene



Since we choose a plane slicing the structure exactly along a C-C bond, you can observe fundamental differences between a Csp3 -Csp3 bond and a Csp2 -Csp2 bond!

To convince you let us foucus on these bonds in the case of an amorphous carbon mixture and of a perfect crystal...

Csp2 -Csp2 in PERFECT GRAPHENE
Csp2 -Csp2 in AMORPHOUS CARBON


Now, let's compare in both cases Csp3 -Csp3 bond...
