The morphology of Bucky onions is investigated by {\it ab initio} calculations using Yang's new $O(N)$ method. It is found that for large single shell fullerenes with $I_h$ symmetry, the spherical morphology has the lower energy than that of polyhedrons. The formation energy per atom follows a simple scaling law. Including an estimate of inter-shell van de Waals interactions leads to the conclusion that spherical multiple shell Bucky onions are likely the most stable structure of large carbon… CONTINUE READING
