Electron microscopy of pyrolytic graphite

  • L. M. Gillin
  • A. Kelly


A detailed study of heat-treated and deformed pyrolytic graphite has been made using transmission electron microscopy. Single-crystal characteristics are observed in material annealed at 3600° C. Tilt boundaries are shown to be kinks in the basal planes with some twin boundaries which can be described in terms of dislocations, as for natural crystals.
