High-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) observations were carried out on the untreated C single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) produced under laser vaporization technique. Micrographs were taken at room temperature at a magnification of 4 × 505 on a negative film. The set of images were taken for each particular isolated tube or a SWNT bundle at the vicinity of the optimal defocus value of the microscope. The results provide the first experimental evidence of achieving atomic resolution of an individual C SWNT by means of HRTEM with a field emission gun.
