In Situ Quantitative Mechanical Characterization and Integration of One Dimensional Metallic Nanostructures
One dimensional (1-D) metallic nanostructures (e.g. nanowires, nanorods) have stimulated great interest recently as important building blocks for future nanoscale electronic and electromechanical devices. In this thesis ...
The Mechanical Characterization of Multi-Wall Carbon Nanotubes and Related Interfaces in Nanocomposites
This thesis primarily documents the development and application of a novel technique, which involves the usage of a silicon micro-mechanical device that operates in conjunction with a quantitative nanoindenter within an ...
