A method to evaluate the tensile strength and stress-strain relationship of carbon nanofibers, carbon nanotubes, and C-chains.


A method is introduced to assess the tensile strength of carbon nanofibers, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), and linear chains of carbon atoms (C-chains) obtained from thin amorphous carbon films by electron irradiation. Transmission electron microscopy images show that the nanofibers undergo a radiation-induced necking process, characterized by CNT formation and… (More)
