Identification of Graphite Mechanical Behavior and Dislocations by Micro-Raman Microscopy

September 01, 2018

In this study, micro-Raman microscopy was used to examine graphite mechanical behavior through the evolution of dislocation defect density and the resultant deformation (strain) in graphite components. The increasing strength of the Raman optical phonon modes linked with a generous number of dislocations indicates the potential capability of Raman spectroscopy to help develop a mechanistic understanding of the complex mechanical behavior of graphite for use in many industries and applications.
