Article history: The present study aims to deduce the in-situ response of iron carbide (Fe C) nanorod ﬁlled inside carbon Received 7 September 2015 nanotube (CNT) under electron irradiation. Electron irradiation on Fe C ﬁlled-CNT at both high and room Received in revised form 7 November 2015 temperature (RT) has been performed inside transmission electron microscope. At high temperature Accepted 10 November 2015 (HT), it has been found that -Fe atoms in lattice of Fe C nanorod accumulate ﬁrst and then form the Available online 25 November 2015 cluster. These clusters follow the inverse Ostwald ripening whereas if e-irradiation is performed at RT then only the morphological changes in both carbon nanotube as well as nanorod are observed.
