Thin glassy carbon coating for protection against oxygen penetration into the C60 fullerite Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract Protection of fullerites against oxygen penetration is one of the main challenges for a fabrication of fullerene‐based electronic devices. In this article, we report on an experimental evidence for such a protection using a very thin (∼ 50 Å) layer of glassy carbon produced by a low temperature pyrolysis of sucrose.
