Fullerene is a new carbon material system closely related with carbon microclusters and/or carbon ultrafine particles. In general, microclusters are defined as atomic clusters consisting of less than 1000 atoms. On the other hand, ultrafine particles are usually defined as particles consisting of atoms above the upper limit of microclusters. The discovery of fullerene was achieved in the process of researching of carbon microclusters and/or carbon ultrafine particles. Fullerene is the name of a family of carbon clusters such as C60, C70, and so on. In this chapter, we will use the word "fullerene" mainly as the name of the C60 clusters.
