Creating a nanopore

To build a carbon nanopore, draw a graphene sheet and a nanotube, remove some atoms and use the Brenner reactive force field during interactive minimization to meld them.

The Brenner potential (Brenner et al., Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, Volume 14, Number 4) is a many-body potential-energy expression with a chemical bond description, which produces realistic geometries for hydrocarbon systems.
