07 Oct 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Demczyk, Y.M. Wang, J. Cumings, M. Hetman, W. Han, A. Zettl. R. O. Ritchie
This work represents the first in-situ measurenment of the tensile strength of a carbon nanotuube.
Self-Consistent Geometry, Density and Stiffness of Carbon Nanotubes
05 May 2010 | | Contributor(s):: R. Byron Pipes
A self-consistent set of relationships is developed for the physical properties of single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCN) and their hexagonal arrays as a function of the chiral vector integer pair, (n,m). Properties include effective radius, density, principal Young’s modulus, and specific...
Nanotribology, Nanomechanics and Materials Characterization Studies
08 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Bharat Bhushan
Fundamental nanotribological studies provide insight to molecular origins of interfacial phenomena including adhesion, friction, wear and lubrication. Friction and wear of lightly loaded micro/nano components are highly dependent on the surface interactions (few atomic layers). Nanotribological...
