Atoms in nanotubes: Small dimensions and variable dimensionality

Newly discovered carbon nanotubes provide an environment in which small atoms move relatively freely. An assembly of such atoms provides a realization of a quasi-one-dimensional system which can be used to illustrate the concepts of statistical physics. © 1999 American Association of Physics Teachers.
