We report resonance Raman results from amorphous carbon films and graphite. Our experiments confirm the presence of φ-states in the amorphous samples, as suggested by theoretical models. The different resonance behavior of the high-energy and low-energy sides of the broad amorphous Raman peak is shown to be related to similar differences we observe in cristalline graphite for zone-edge and zone-center phonons.
