Glassy carbon (GC) is usually considered the prototypical super-elastic material, which can almost fully recover its shape after compression of several gigapascals (GPa). In this work, nanoindentation is used to study the mechanical response of GC, which was subjected to a range of high pressures using a diamond anvil cell (DAC). We show that GC starts to lose its elasticity after compression to 6 GPa and becomes clearly mechanically anisotropic after being compressed beyond ∼30 GPa....[Show more]
