A review is proposed of different techniques available today for the characterization of the atomic structure of carbon nanotubes. This review covers the electron microscopies, various diffraction techniques, scanning probe microscopies, and optical spectroscopies, including Raman scattering. The advantages and limitations of the characterization techniques are discussed.
