Description: This image shows in-situ transmission electron microscopy results, which have been used to measure hollow spherical nanoparticles that withstand extreme stress and deform without losing strength. At upper right, a cadmium sulfide nanosphere before stress is applied. The hollow sphere is partly transparent to the electron beam. At lower right, the sphere after being stressed to the point of failure.
