Making Nanotubes SuperStretchy

Abstract:
Boston College physics professors Jianyu Huang and Zhifeng Ren, graduate student Shuo Chen, and coworkers were therefore astonished to discover that a SWNT could be elongated to more than triple its original length when they ran a high current through it. One nanotube, for example, stretched from 24 nm to 91 nm while its diameter decreased from 12 nm to 0.8 nm.
