These videos were taken in an in-situ scanning electron microscope (SEM) equipped with a nanomechanical module. This instrument applies a compressive load to hierarchical nanolattices whose building blocks are composed of self-similar unit cells. These videos highlight the important role of material and architecture in structural meta-materials to elicit diametrically opposite properties - i.e. catastrophic failure vs. recoverability and damage tolerance - when material dimensions are reduced to the nanoscale.
