Tuning Nanotubes: Beam to String Transition of Vibrating Carbon Nanotubes Under Axial Tension (Adv. Funct. Mater. 11/2009)
On page 1753, the vibration properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) under axial tension are quantificationally studied by X. L. Wei et al. through a novel in situ method for precise and simultaneous measurement of the resonance frequency, the axial tension applied to individual CNTs, and the tube geometry. A gradual beam-to-string transition from multiwalled CNTs to singlewalled CNTs is observed; the CNTs can be tuned like a zither!
