Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

(a) Bright field (BF) TEM image of ZnS nanotubes with different diameters. As the BFTEM image was taken after all the maps, the nanotubes already show porous features after being exposed to the electron beam irradiation during the mapping process, [(b), (c), and (d)] Elemental maps of O, S, and Zn, taken at the O edge , S edge , and Zn edge , respectively.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

[(a)–(d)] Low magnification TEM images taken from single ZnS nanotube after being exposed to , 100, 500, and electron beam irradiation, respectively; [(e)–(h)] the corresponding TED patterns taken from the same nanotube.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Bright field TEM image of a nanotube (a) before and (b) after prolonged electron beam irradiation; [(c) and (d)] the corresponding EDX spectra taken from the nanotube local regions as marked in (a) and (b), respectively.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

[(a)–(c)] TED patterns taken from nanotubes after being exposed for to 120, 100, and accelerating voltages, respectively.
