Influence of anisotropic elasticity on the mechanical properties of fivefold twinned nanowires

 

In this paper in the Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids (vol. 84, p. 358, 

http://authors.elsevier.com/a/1Rk5057Zjdx-o ) we propose a
new theory for the mechanical properties of fivefold twinned nanowires.

We show that the Frank vector of the central wedge disclination depends on the uniaxial strain,

Size effects on elasticity, yielding, and fracture of silver nanowires

This paper reports the quantitative measurement of a full spectrum of mechanical properties of fivefold twinned silver (Ag) nanowires (NWs), including Young’s modulus, yield strength, and ultimate tensile strength. In-situ tensile testing of Ag NWs with diameters between 34 and 130 nm was carried out inside a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Young’s modulus, yield strength, and ultimate tensile strength all increased as the NW diameter decreased.

PhD Position in Nanomaterials Science at the University of Vermont

An excellent student with research expertise and interest in molecular dynamics simulation and theory of mechanical and/or thermal transport properties in nanomaterials such as nanowires, bulk nanotwinned metals and graphene, is sought to fill a new PhD opening in my group starting in Fall 2012. Interested students should send me a detailed CV with a description of past research achievements and the names of references to frederic.sansoz@uvm.edu.

Mechanical Properties of Silicon Nanowires

In this paper that was published a few months ago, we reported the size effects on the elastic modulus and fracture strength of silicon nanowires. In addition, we observed that the silicon nanowires are linear elastic until fracture with a very large fracture strain up to 12%.

Mechanical properties of ZnO nanowires under different loading modes

In this paper, we report the size effects on elastic modulus and fracture strength of ZnO nanowires from the tension, and that the measured (nominal) elastic moduli under tension and bending (from the buckling experiment) are different as a manifestation of the size effects.
