A Square Peg in a Round Hole: Nanocrystals Pass Through Tiny Constrictions Unchanged

A team of researchers have observed an iron nanocrystal move through a constriction in a carbon nanotube with a smaller diameter than that of the nanocrystal, driven by an electric current. It's the nanoscience equivalent of putting a square peg in a round hole. ยป
