Individual WS(2) nanotubes (NTs) were bended and released in-situ inside a transmission electron microscope. Kinks appeared in the NTs suddenly during the bending process. Shell distortion, shell breaking and rotation of broken shells were observed in these kinks. Spontaneous self-healing and focused electron beam-assisted healing of the structure were observed after the load was removed. More importantly, the strength and electrical conductivity of the NTs were also restored to their original level when the structure recovered.
