This is a movie of a TEM simulation of curved single wall nanotube being moved over an amorphous carbon background. It runs at 12 fps.


This is a longer version of the same movie.  Both movies were made using a graphics-hardware-accelerated simulator produced by David Borland as part of our accelerated microscope simulation and analysis work.  The curved nanotube shown in the video is moved by hand using a 6-degree-of-freedom manipulation device while the background thickness is adjusted.  The combined background + tube simulation is run at 12 frames/second.
