MATSCI 241: Mechanical Behavior of Nanomaterials (ME 241)

Mechanical behavior of the following nanoscale solids: 2D materials (metal thin films, graphene), 1D materials (nanowires, carbon nanotubes), and 0D materials (metallic nanoparticles, quantum dots). This course will cover elasticity, plasticity and fracture in nanomaterials, defect-scarce nanomaterials, deformation near free surfaces, coupled optoelectronic and mechanical properties (e.g. piezoelectric nanowires, quantum dots), and nanomechanical measurement techniques. Prerequisites: Mechanics of Materials (ME80) or equivalent.
