Carbon nanotube punching hole in lower terrace of silicon

Carbon nanotube based are expected to provide extraordinarily strong but light-weight composites for future structural applications. To realize these applications, we first need to know a lot more about these materials: especially, how strong is this nanotube? How stiff? What happens if you bend it? Twist it? Stretch it? Compress it? This clip shows the simulation of a multiwall nanotube undergoing torsional twisting.
