  1. Mechanical Exfoliation as a Route to Nanomanufacturing of 2D van der Waals Bonded

    11 May 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Daryl Chrzan

    In this talk I present a mechanical exfoliation method able to reliably produce large patterned monolayer samples and place them with upon a substrate in desired locations. The method relies on the epitaxial strain imposed upon the layer to be exfoliated by the deposition of a thin metallic film.

  5. The Life and Death of Turbulence

    21 Feb 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Nigel Goldenfeld

    In this presentation, I propose that turbulence is most fruitfully regarded as a problem in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, and will show that this perspective explains turbulent drag behavior measured over 80 years, and makes predictions that have been experimentally tested in 2D...
