Shear stiffness and friction mechanics of single-layer graphene measured for the first time
Bristol, UK (SPX) Feb 17, 2012
Researchers from the University of Bristol have measured and identified for the first time the stress and strain shear modulus and internal friction of graphene sheets. Graphene is a material that has many potential groundbreaking uses in the electronics and composites industry. The research, in collaboration with the US Office of Naval Research, is published in Nano Letters. Graphene is made up of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice. It is a promising material for ... read more
