Movie S1
Bending of a single crystalline diamond nanoneedle inside SEM, with fully recoverable flexural deformation (shown in Fig. 2A (A1 â€" A4)); video speed at 10 times the speed of experiment.
Movie S2
Bending of a single crystalline diamond nanoneedle inside SEM, with final fracture (shown in Fig. 2B (B1 â€" B4)); video speed at 15 times the speed of experiment. The extracted maximum local (tensile) elastic strain is the highest (~9%) among all tested samples.
Movie S3
Bending of another single crystalline diamond nanoneedle inside SEM, with final fracture (shown in Fig. S5Aâ€"D); video speed at 16 times the speed of experiment.
Movie S4
Bending of a single crystalline diamond nanoneedle inside SEM pushed by a lateral sideward movement of the indenter tip, with fully recoverable flexural deformation (shown in Fig. S6); video speed at 8 times the speed of experiment.
Movie S5
Bending of a polycrystalline diamond nanoneedle inside SEM, with final fracture (shown in Fig. 3Aâ€"C) and S7); video speed at 11 times the speed of experiment.
Movie S6
Bending of another polycrystalline diamond nanoneedle inside SEM, with final fracture (shown in Fig. S8Aâ€"C); video speed at 11 times the speed of experiment.
