Carbon fiber "Cookie Monster"

Victor Bermudez

Carbon fiber "Cookie Monster" by Victor Bermudez This image was captured by scanning electron microscopy of the transverse section of a carbon fiber. The massive void resembling a wide mouth was most likely caused by the release of large amounts of gases during carbonization, a step in carbon fiber processing in which the fiber is heated up to 5000 °F in the absence of oxygen. The presence of such voids limits the mechanical properties of a carbon fiber, so we aim to eliminate these monsters! Therefore, the study of their origin is important to obtain the levels of strength and stiffness required for the use of carbon fibers in structural applications, from the shaft of a golf club to the body of an airline jet.
