Electrical and mechanical properties of C70 fullerene and graphite under high pressures studied using designer diamond anvils

Academic Article


  • The high-pressure properties of fullerene C70 at room temperature were studied. The electrical and mechanical properties under extreme compressions in a diamond anvil cell were compared with the properties of graphite. It was found that the amorphous carbon phase produced from C70 has unique properties not attainable from graphite.
