Abstract Recently 3-150-nm-diameter carbon fibers have been discovered which appear to grow spontaneously by deposition from carbon vapor. It is proposed that these structures may be giant fullerenes which have grown by direct insertion into the graphitic network of smaller carbon species (atoms, {open_quotes}linear{close_quotes} chains, monocyclic rings, or even smaller fullerenes) accreted from the vapor phase. 37 refs., 5 figs.
