Carbon single walled nanotubes produced in high yields by the electric arc technique have been studied by several techniques including HRTEM. It is shown in particular that they have a narrow diameter distribution around an average value of 1.3 nm. In this paper, we mainly report characterization results obtained by high resolution Raman spectroscopy. Raman spectra exhibit a very rich structure especially in the low frequency range where several components are observed. Using previous calculations, we attribute the main features to armchair tubes with (6,6) to (12,12) geometry, in agreement with the narrow diameter distribution observed by HRTEM measurements.
