Abstract : A great deal of attention has recently been focussed on the very high electrical conductivity reported in arsenic penta fluoride intercalated vapor grown graphite fibers, previously heat treated to high temperatures. To characterize individual arsenic penta fluoride intercalated vapor grown fibers for stage index and staging fidelity along the fiber length, Raman scattering measurements have been carried out. These results are discussed in terms of their high electrical conductivity and structural features. Keywords: Carbon fibers, Raman characterization of carbon fibers, Arsenic pentafluoride intercalated carbon fibers, Raman spectra arsenic pentafluoride intercalated carbon fibers.
