Studies from G. Zhou et al in the Area of Carbon Research Described (
The news reporters obtained a quote from the research, "The distribution of crystallite orientation in a fiber from core to skin was obtained by using transmission electron microscopy. The observations indicate the load-transfer between crystallites depends on the crystallite entanglement. The slide-lock of the entangled junctions among the loosely compacted crystallites is responsible for the increasing elastic modulus during tension."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The sharp drop of tensile strength (-36%) of the fiber after heat treated at 1600 degrees C was attributed to the increasing of crystallite size, nanopore defects and a higher misalignment of crystallites in the core region."
