Description
NANOMECHANICS, MATERIALS AND DEVICE
This course is an introduction for current nanotechnology and fundamentals for Nano engineering. It mainly contains three areas: Nano mechanics, nanomaterials and nanoscale devices. In Nano mechanics, it covers Nano indentation mechanics, thin film mechanics and one dimensional nanowire mechanics, Nano crack mechanics, deformation in nanomaterials. Nano mechanical model will be emphasized. In nanomaterials, it covers carbon nanotube, one dimensional semiconducting nanowires & Nano multilayers as well as nanostructured composites. Novel property/phenomena reviewed.
