Mechanics of Nano-Objects

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

This book, including several contributions from CEMES scientists, provides an updated view of the rapidly growing field of mechanical properties of nano-objects like micropillars, nanowires, nanoparticles, nano-precipitates, nano-twins, MEMS, NEMS and structured surfaces. Examples are given of systems where mastering mechanical properties in small dimensions is key to control the aimed property.
