|Issue Date:||Oct-2001||Citation:||Ren, Z.M.,Lu, Y.F.,Choy, H.W.,Chong, T.C.,Ng, S.C.,Miao, P. (2001-10). Formation of quasi-one-dimensional carbon chains in cubic nanocrystals by photon-breaking of C-S bonds inpolythiophene. Journal of Materials Research 16 (10) : 2793-2797. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||A solid polythiophene pellet was ablated by a KrF excimer laser beam to deposit thin films on silicon substrates. The laser-ablated plasma was studied by optical emission spectroscopy to identify the photon-breaking of C-S bonds in the ablated heterocycles. Raman and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy measurements of the deposited thin films also supported the selective photon-induced bond breaking. After eliminating sulfur in the molecular structures, the thin films appeared to be composed of cubic nanocrystals with a uniform size of 240 nm. X-ray diffraction measurement determined the cubic crystal structures with a lattice constant of α = 3.38 Å and suggested a quasi-one-dimensional carbon chain structure along the body diagonal of the cube.||Source Title:||Journal of Materials Research||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/50930||ISSN:||08842914|
