Abstract

The authors report on the transport of energetic electrons through single, well aligned multiwall carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Embedding of CNTs in a protective carbon fiber coating enables the application of focused ion beam based sample preparation techniques for the nondestructive isolation and alignment of individual tubes. Aligned tubes with lengths of 0.7-3 mu m allow transport of 300 keV electrons in a transmission electron microscope through their hollow cores at zero degree incident angles and for a misalignment of up to 1 degrees.
