Junction formation in crossed C(10,0) single wall carbon nanotubes under pressure has been investigated, using classical molecular-dynamics simulations at 1 K. It has been found that a stable mechanical junction was formed by means of placing two crossed single wall carbon nanotubes between two rigid graphene layers which move toward each other.
