High-resolution transmission electron microscopy and spatially resolved electron loss spectroscopy have revealed that a eutectic mixture of AgCl and AgI crystallizes within single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) as metastable AgCl1-xIx 1D solid solution crystals. The incorporated halide crystals form wurzite "tunnel" structures with locally varying Cl:I ratios and reduced Ag coordination.
