Below are few pictures depicting the same. Let's have a look at them.
#3 Microscopic view
Carbon Q, a closer look. This Q- phase of Carbon was created using a laser beam on amorphous carbon for 200 nano seconds. The temperature of Q Carbon rose and dropped sharply because of the process called quenching.
#2 A Deeper view
A deeper view at Carbon -Q to know of the properties of this new substance. The research has been published in the Journal of Applied Sciences.
This discovery is going to be a big hit. It's like a breakthrough in the field of structures and materials.
But where can these be used ? Continue reading.
#1 A Discovery, A revolution!
There are many varied ways of using Q Carbon. Its going to find its own way into the market. It could be used in jewelry, clothes decoration. Even, the drillers can be fabricated out with the help of Carbon Q for deep drilling... Improved mobile screens, brighter screens for all the smart phones and television.
