Scrolling of planar graphene induced by water as a result of the interplay between water capillarity and graphene elasticity leads to the formation of stable nanochannels that encapsulate water and nanoscale objects. These graphene nanochannels are potential nanofluidic platforms for dynamic imaging of nanoscale processes in liquids with Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEMs).
