This publication describes the first direct electron microscopy observation of contiguous carbon nanotubes in the core of carbon fibers, synthesized using the "chemical vapor deposition" (CVD) process. Even though nanotubes gained popularity only with the "Nanotechnology Boom" dating back to the 1990's, CVD is currently the method of choice to synthesize large-scale quantities of nanotubes.

Endorsed by three publishers as what they consider a Highlight in Small Systems
