The "Joule Heating" paper has been published, finally.

In this paper we show the phase transformation and annealing of nanosized bundle of the material Mo6S3I6 into a solid molybdenum wire. It was accomplished using the in-situ TEM probing method in which we contacted the bundle, and then, by driving an high electric current through it, the bundle transformed and annealed.
During all of our experiments we record everything into a movie. These movies you can find at YouTube, as seen below.
