Schematic and Electron Microscopy Images (IMAGE) Tokyo Metropolitan University Caption This is a schematic and electron microscopy images of single wires of molybdenum telluride formed inside carbon nanotubes. These 1D reaction vessels are a good fit for the wires, and confine the chemical reactions which create them to one direction. Epitaxial (layer by layer) growth can then proceed along the inner walls of the tubes.
