Tubular configurations and structure-dependent anisotropic strains in GaS multi-walled sub-microtubes.


Bending strains and bonding structures of GaS multiwalled submicrotubes have been examined by transmission electron microscopy. Experimental observations reveal that the strain involved in building the GaS tubes is more complicated than the theoretical prediction and appears anisotropic and dependent on the tubular configurations. The armchair tube bears a… (More)
