Click here to view one large-screen applet.
This is a (5,5) armchair nanotube with six unit cells.
This is a (9,0) zigzag nanotube also with six unit cells

The right mouse button will bring up a menu and the following mouse actions can also be used to control the applet even while the animation is playing:

  • Left Mouse Button - rotates the molecule in x and y dimensions
  • Shift-Right Mouse Button - horizontal movement of the mouse rotates the molecule in the z dimension
  • Ctrl-Right Mouse Button - translates (moves) the molecule
  • Shift-Left Mouse Button - vertical movement of the mouse zooms in and out
Generate your own nanotube coordinates with the source. To learn more about nanotubes go to the Nanotube Site. To learn more about the Jmol project go to http://jmol.sourceforge.net/.

You can also have a look at a DNA molecule.
