Experimental measurements of the electrical resistivity vs temperature of methane vapor grown carbon fibers are presented. The fibers are heat treated from 1100 degree C (as-grown) to 3000 degree C. Data are fit to a standard two band model, which yields values for boundary scattering limited electron mobility, inplane mean free path, energy band overlap, and total carrier density. The data are also fit to an ellipsoidal band model, where data fits yield effective masses, band overlap, Fermi velocity, phonon contributions to scattering, and ionized impurity scattering rates.
