[Illinois] Interphase Chemical Mapping Of Carbon Fiber-epoxy Composites By Afm-ir Spectroscopy
13 Apr 2017 | Contributor(s):: Chris Montgomery
The properties and performance of carbon fiber reinforced polymer matrix composites are highly influenced by the chemical interactions of the fiber/matrix interface region. Many researchers have hypothesized that the presence of carbon fibers in epoxy causes a chemical gradient to form around...
Ripples and Warping of Graphene: A Theoretical Study
08 Jun 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Umesh V. Waghmare
We use first-principles density functional theory based analysis to understand formation of ripples in graphene and related 2-D materials. For an infinite graphene, we show that ripples are linked with a low energy branch of phonons that exhibits quadratic dispersion at long wave-lengths. Many...
