Nanostructure Research

In-situ mechanical testing of 1-D nanostructures under direct view of electron microscope: Aim is to explore new techniques for separation and mechanical testing of materials that are 10,000 times smaller than width of a human hair. The nanomanipulators and scanning electron microscope were installed last year and one undergraduate and a graduate student has received the training.
