    NanoLAB work highlighted on

    Carbon is unique and forms structures as diverse as ultra-hard diamond, supersoft graphite, amorphous carbon and carbon nanotubes. But how can such disparate structures form from the same atoms? Using a real-time setup, scientists at Sheffield University's NanoLAB Centre, UK, are studying how ultra-thin layers of amorphous carbon, just 10100 atoms thick, can be changed into different forms of carbon by simply rubbing the two surfaces together.
