Tensile loading and pullouts of individual multi‐walled BNNTs were studied for the first time by in‐situ tests in the integrated HRTEM‐AFM setup. Most important mechanical parameters, such as the ultimate tensile strength and strain, maximum sustainable load and the Young’s modulus of tubes, were measured. Under parallel HRTEM observations the measured mechanical parameters were correlated to experimental conditions and tube structures.
