The melting of carbon at a pressure of about 1 atm is observed. The escape of liquid carbon from the heating region and its spread over the sample surface are observed in the experiments. The structural change in graphite occurring in the melting region are determined from scanning tunneling microscope (STM) images obtained by means of an atomic force microscope and from Raman spectra. The STM images exhibit significant rearrange¬ment of the structure of the graphite surface in the region of the escape of liquid carbon. The Raman spectra show that the graphite ordering degree increases significantly. A method for reconstructing the surface relief from the video image is proposed and realized. The method is based on the measurement of the angular distribution of the light intensity scattered by the graphite sample surface. The surface relief of the graphite sample changing in time is reconstructed. The relative change in the relief height during laser excitation is measured. The statistical characteristics of the reconstructed graphite surface shape and their variation during laser irradiation are studied.
