We studied the fabrication of a single metal-carbon composite nanowire device inside a diamond-anvil-cell to explore its electrical transport properties under external hydrostatic pressure. The pressure-induced shape reconstruction of metallic grains and associated modification of inter-grain interactions successfully explained the observed electrical transport behavior.
