We report on our model for transport of charged particles through insulating nanocapillaries. The dynamics of transmitted ion beams prior to equilibrium is investigated. Extension of the transport theory to electron projectiles reveals that different mechanisms are responsible for their deflection in capillaries. Charge-up is no longer a prerequisite to establish guided transmission.
