ASME Nanomechanics and the Atomic Force Microscope Complimentary Webinar  edit    delete

Category: other
Description: Speaker: Prof. Arvind Raman, Purdue University

The mechanical properties of surfaces at the nanoscale can have a major influence on macroscale surface properties, especially when dealing with complex nanostructured materials or composites. Properties such as adhesion, friction, elastic modulus, loss and storage moduli, piezoelectric constants etc. of such materials can change significantly over a few nanometers leading to changes in macroscale properties of the surfaces/materials. The Atomic Force Microscope is a tool which is now quickly moving out of the domain of applied physics into materials and mechanical engineering to tackle relevant problems in these fields. In this talk, we will go over some of the basics of the Atomic Force Microscope and provide an overview of the application of the AFM to number of interesting nanomechanics problems in engineering ranging from composite materials, semiconductors, and battery materials to biomimmetics and biomaterials.
