Different types of sp2-based carbon materials are widely used in several industrial fields like activated carbons in filters, carbide-derived carbons in supercapacitors or pitch-based carbons as electrodes. These carbon materials differ in their microstructure leading to distinct macroscopic properties like electrical conductivity or stiffness. Therefore, a precise characterization of the carbon microstructure on the nanometer scale is essential to correlate it with the materials'…Continue
