Abstract : In this brief review article on liquid carbon, the following topics are considered: the phase diagram of carbon, methods for preparing and characterizing liquid carbon, a survey of what is known about the properties of liquid carbon, and models that have been used to account for the properties of liquids carbon. Special emphasis is given to experiments on carbon fibers relevant to determination of the electrical resistivity of liquids carbon. Liquid carbon, High temperature resistivity of carbon fibers, Photoconductivity of carbon fibers.
