Hypergravity synthesis of graphitic carbon nanomaterial in glide arc plasma

Materials Research Bulletin 54 (2014) 61-65

A nanostructured carbon material was synthesized using a methane/helium glide arc plasma under standard and increased gravity. Material analysis performed on samples collected from an effluent gas filter showed that the deposited material was present in the form of carbon nanoparticles. They exhibited graphitic structure and their morphology depends on the gravity level.
