The term "carbon nanofiber" summarizes a large family of different 
filamentous nanocarbons. They can be distinguished according to either the 
arrangement of the graphene layers (see carbon nanostructures: 
"platelet-like" or "fishbone" substructure) or the growth morphologies and 
The HRTEM image shows a "fishbone" carbon nanofiber with the graphene 
sheets arranged in an angle of about 30 degrees with respect to the fiber 
axis (the orientation is difficult to see because of the poor crystallinity 
of the nanofiber).
