The origin of the iron nanocrystal movement is the electromigration force. Even though the iron nanocrystal appears to be moving as a whole, we find that the core atoms of the nanocrystal are completely stationary, and only the surface atoms are moving. Movement in the contact region with the carbon nanotube is driven by electromigration… CONTINUE READING
