‘Glassy Carbon’ Super Material is Ultrastrong, Elastic, and Electrically Conductive
Compressed glassy carbon is an ultrastrong, hard, and elastic type of carbon that consists of interpenetrating graphene networks. The material was demonstrated by researchers at the Carnegie Institute for Science. This video shows an example indentation hardness test, scratch hardness test, and gives an overview of the specific strength and local atomic structure.
