  MSE Seminar: Mechanics at the Nanoscale  
(Lectures/Talks)

"Mechanics at the Nanoscale: From the Breakdown of Continuum Plate Mechanics in Graphene to the Phase Transition Plasticity of Silicon Nano-spheres"

Traian Dumitrica, University of Minnesota

Abstract: Mechanics at the nanoscale is a cross-disciplinary area where the traditional concepts of mechanics overlap with the fundamentally different aspects of quantum chemistry and solid-state physics. In our studies of graphene nanostructures, ZnO nano-wires, and Si nano-particles, we have encountered situations when this overlap gives rise to new and useful phenomena. This talk will concentrate on three such examples.
