Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) image of several types of carbon, including carbon nanofibers, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), graphene, graphene oxide (GO), and amorphous carbon. Formation of nanocarbons was catalyzed by nickel nanoparticles placed on a substrate via two-photon lithography of hybrid organic-inorganic materials. Individual nickel nanoparticles of 50-150 nm size are seen suspended on carbon nanofibers in the moss-like region (bottom right).
