Abstract:

The focus of the supported research was the study of the structure and vibrational excitations of graphite intercalation compounds GICs using primarily diffuse and discrete temperature-dependent and pressure-dependent x-ray diffraction studies and Raman scattering. Our major contributions in the supported research were The discovery and analysis of new structural phases and novel phase transitions in GICs The discovery of pressure-dependent staging effects which significantly alter both light scattering and x-ray results and The discovery and quantitative characterization of carbon layer distortions in GICs.
