First- and second-order Raman spectra of closed-carbon nanostructures (nanotubes and nanoparticles) have been measured and compared to those of glassy carbon and highly oriented pyrolitic graphite. It is shown that this novel material has unique Raman spectral features which should be useful in its identification. Furthermore, the results indicate that nanotubes possess a high degree of crystalline order.
