(Received 30 January 2002; published 29 July 2002)
Crossing single-walled carbon nanotubes can be joined by electron beam welding to form molecular
junctions. Stable junctions of various geometries are created in situ in a transmission electron microscope.
Electron beam exposure at high temperatures induces structural defects which promote the joining of
