Symposium Description:

This symposium will cover recent advances in the mechanical properties of 2-D materials. Topics include experiments, theory, and modeling of mechanical deformations, nanomechanical devices, adhesion, friction, and strain engineering are welcomed. The primary focus is on the extraordinary properties and applications of 2-D materials and their integration with other systems to achieve better functionality. Relevant topics:

  • Mechanical properties
  • 2-D materials
  • Graphene
  • Low-dimension
