The atomic ordering of the amorphous diamond-like carbon at the scale larger than short-range order is directly related to the characteristics of the array of interstitial voids. The large interstitial voids are responsible for the first diffraction peak, while the smaller ones (second and third order size of the voids) are responsible especially for the intensity and position of the second peaks in the interference function (structure factor).
