Abstract

The formation of periodic patterns on fullerite thin film surfaces is observed after irradiation with a pulsed Nd:Yag laser (1064 nm). C60 disruption and subsequent coalescence of the fragments take place, resulting in the formation of carbon nanotubes and polyhedral hollow graphitic particles. The effects of irradiation have been characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Raman scattering.
