The time-of-flight mass spectra of carbon nanotube plasma produced by laser was first investigated in this paper. We found the hemi-spherical tips of carbon nanotube were easily fragmentated and aggregated into fullerenes between Coo arid C_(174) in high laser fluence.

Key words: Carbon nanotube, Fullerene
