gas-phase-grown carbon fibres

Gas-phase-grown carbon fibres transform during @[email protected] into @[email protected] These show a very high degree of preferred orientation and are particularly suitable for intercalation treatments. The term 'vapour-grown carbon fibres' alternatively used in the literature is acceptable. The use of the term 'CVD fibres' is not recommended as an alternative for gas-phase-grown carbon fibres since the term 'CVD fibres' also describes fibres grown by a chemical vapour deposition (CVD) process on substrate fibres.
