These fibres really consist of bundles of long chains of carbon atoms. They are made by burning an appropriate polymer fibre (polymers, or plastics, are all basically agglomerations of chemical chains); by stretching the fibre during the burning process a highly orientated - and hence strong - fibre of long chains of carbon atoms is produced. Under a powerful microscope, these chains are seen to be in the form of a lad der . The ladder-shaped chain, with its regular atomic cross-links, provides the carbon fibre (which is actually a thick bundle of intertwined 'ladder-chains') with its great strength and stability.
