Abstract

Modifications induced by laser heating of C60 single crystal are examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The fullerite surface is etched in the presence of oxygen, whereas no substantial change is observed under inert atmosphere. The formation of three dimensional micro-structures is observed depending on laser annealing conditions. Energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectroscopy shows that oxygen concentration substantially increases in the irradiated regions.
