Abstract
The microscopic zipper mechanism to explain the fast fusion process of carbon naonotubes was discussed. The pathways were identified for two adjacent (5,5) nanotubes to merge into a (10,10) tube. The mechanism involves bond rotations to speed up the merging process in partially fused tubes. It was found that the zipper mechanism of fusion was supported by a time series of high-resolution transmission electron microscopy observations.
