Direct mechanical measurement of the tensile strength and elastic modulus of multiwalled carbon nanotubes
Abstract We have conducted pulling and bending tests on individual carbon nanotubes in-situ in a transition electron microscope. Based on our observation of the force required to break the tube, aExpand

Graphene plasmonics for tunable terahertz metamaterials.
Plasmons describe collective oscillations of electrons. They have a fundamental role in the dynamic responses of electron systems and form the basis of research into optical metamaterials. PlasmonsExpand

Boron Nitride Nanotubes
The successful synthesis of pure boron nitride (BN) nanotubes is reported here. Multi-walled tubes with inner diameters on the order of 1 to 3 nanometers and with lengths up to 200 nanometers wereExpand

Measurement of the Elastic Modulus of a Multi-Wall Boron Nitride Nanotube
We have experimentally determined the elastic properties of an individual multi-wall boron nitride (BN) nanotube. From the thermal vibration amplitude of a cantilevered BN nanotube observed in aExpand

Direct imaging of lattice atoms and topological defects in graphene membranes.
We present a transmission electron microscopy investigation of graphene membranes, crystalline foils with a thickness of only 1 atom. By using aberration-correction in combination with aExpand

Graphene at the Edge: Stability and Dynamics
Although the physics of materials at surfaces and edges has been extensively studied, the movement of individual atoms at an isolated edge has not been directly observed in real time. With aExpand

Nanotube radio.
We have constructed a fully functional, fully integrated radio receiver from a single carbon nanotube. The nanotube serves simultaneously as all essential components of a radio: antenna, tunableExpand
