Electrical conductivity of carbon fibers heat-treated at 1000 or 1200°C has been measured at low temperatures. Both carbon fibers show a large decrease of the conductivity with T- 1 2 dependence with decreasing temperature below about 1 K in the absence of magnetic field, while T 1 2 dependence of the conductivity is observed in high magnetic fields (T: temperature). The former seems due to the Kondo effect in the three-dimensional weakly localized regime investigated by Ohkawa and Fukuyama, while the latter is considered as due to the electron-electron interaction effect perceptible after the suppression of the Kondo effect by the magnetic field.
