Compressed glassy carbon is an ultrastrong, hard and elastic type of carbon that consists of interpenetrating graphene networks. This video summary shows an example indentation hardness test, scratch hardness test, and provides a description of the specific strength and local atomic structure.

The structure of compressed glassy carbon consists of interpenetrating graphene networks. These networks are constructed by sp3, diamond-like nodes (red spheres) that connect curved, buckled and crosslinked graphene sheets (black spheres). Image credit: Timothy Strobel

Compressed glassy carbon contains graphene-like, sp2 carbon atoms (black spheres) connected by diamond-like, sp3 carbon atoms (red spheres). The background shows a high-resolution transmission electron microscopy image with locally ordered, interconnected regions on the nanometer scale. Image credit: Timothy Strobel
