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.

KiriGAMI Design and Analysis Tutorial
26 Feb 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Subhadeep De
GAMIAN is a design and mechanical ANalysis tool for KiriGAMI structures. Starting from designing cuts or incisions on any thin-film structure to solving for its final deformed configuration under planar loading, all the steps can be carried out using GAMIAN. GAMIAN provides...
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...
