Buckminsterfullerene (C 60 ) has recently been detected through its infrared emission b ands in the interstellar medium (ISM), including in the proximity of massive stars, where physical condit ions could favor the formation of the cationic form, C +60. In addition, C+60was proposed as the carrier of two di ffuse interstellar bands in the near-IR, although a firm identi fica on still awaits gas-phase spectroscopic data. We examined in detail the Spitzer IRS spectra of the NGC 7023 reflection… Expand
