Graphene oxide ‘paper’ changes with strainGraphene oxide ‘paper’ changes with strain
Rice researchers say material is more or less brittle, depending on how hard it’s pulled
The same slip-and-stick mechanism that leads to earthquakes is at work on the molecular level in nanoscale materials, where it determines the shear plasticity of the materials, according to scientists at Rice University and the State University of Campinas, Brazil. (January 19, 2016)
