Electron microscope animation: Carbon nanotubes pulled into thread

First-ever animation of carbon nanotubes self-aligning into a thread, captured by an electron microscope (as far as I know). Electron microscope animation of phonograph needle: Toothbrush: Active integrated circuit in homebuilt electron microscope: Electron microscope image capture system:


  1. I have picked up a electron microscope from a storage unit. I thought u might want it or be interested in checking it out.

  3. Completely off subject but you are the one youtube personality I can think of who may have the ability to investigate this; with the shortage of N95 masks, I wonder if treating a lesser mask with an oil or other substance may increase the overall safety.

    Basically, no N95 available then do this in a pinch - it'll give you a touch more safety.

  4. Hello. I am working at The Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation and now I am making a film about the material carbon. I saw your YouTube experiments and was just wondering if I by any chance could use some of it in my production.

    1. Larsern, I really appreciate the interest, but my videos need to stay only on my channel on YouTube.
