Raman data comparing curved kish with other carbons

Two features in the graphite foil data fail to appear in the curved kish or HOPG data: a small peak at 1335 cm-1 (D band) and a shoulder at 1615 cm-1 (Dí band). D bands arise from graphene edges[7,8].  The foil and curved kish data sets are displaced vertically for clarity. The curved kish graphite resembles highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG), more than it resembles the disordered graphite (foil) which serves as the carbon source for the curved kish.
