Title Microstructure Analyses of Detonation Diamond Nanoparticles.
Publication Date May 2012
Media Count 15p
Personal Author E. Jelis S. Kerwien T. Chatterjee
Abstract Transmission electron microscopy and electron diffraction technique revealed detonation diamond nanoparticles approximately 6 nm in diameter. The scanning electron microscope pictures showed the octahedral shape and lustrous faces of this bulk nanomaterial. The EDAX analysis from this perfectly well purified powder material showed a single C peak. The electron diffraction and x-ray diffraction patterns confirmed these nanoparticles have octahedral crystal habit and cubic crystal system.
