A new form of carbon is described, which consists of hollow, three-dimensional shells bounded by bilayer graphene. The new carbon is produced very simply, by passing a current through graphite rods in a commercial arc-evaporation unit. Characterisation of the carbon using high resolution transmission electron microscopy is described, and the possible formation mechanism discussed.
