In this study, PAN (polyacrylonitrile)-based carbon fiber was prepared under dif- ferent carbonization conditions. [] Key Method Crystalline characteristics of carbon fiber such as crystallinity and crystal size were analyzed using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Scherrer's equation, based on the XRD patterns, respectively. The tensile strength and modulus of these carbon fibers were measured through a tensile test. Ther- mal characteristics were analyzed using a thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA). The result…
