RAMAN CHARACTERIZATION OF STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES OF THERMALLY MODIFIED NANOGRAPHITE
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
Raman spectroscopy is highly sensitive to study the structural properties of nanographite (NG) materials. An experiment was conducted to assess the spectrum of multi-shell nanographite at different temperature and laser treatments. Four samples with different temperature were used. The range of temperature used was 1500-1650 oC. All samples were subjected to different laser treatments like 488, 514, 633 and 785 nm respectively. The spectrum of nanographite was observed by using the Raman spectroscopy. The 1st and 2nd order spectra of NG were evaluated by using the Voigt analysis. The variations in the intensities of D and G bands were analyzed. The decrease of D band width with heat treatment was observed. The peak 1523 cm-1 exhibited more and more reduction with increase in temperature treatments. Temperature induced the conversion of nanodiamond to nanographite.
