The electrical and electromechanical properties of individual carbon nanohorn (CNH) aggregates are probed using a conductive atomic force microscope. The results showed that an individual CNH aggregate exhibits irreversible conductance responses at the initial stage of applying pressure, ascribed to the plastic deformation of the peripheral nanohorns, and reversible conductance responses afterwards, corresponding to the elastic deformation of the core.
