Rolling Up A Sheet of Graphene

A planar hexagonal lattice is rolled up into a cylinder. This can be an illustration of how a graphene sheet forms a nanotube of "armchair" geometry.  This interactive demonstration permits the user to change various parameters of the graphene roll up format as it forms various dimensionality nanotubes.
