PS1.7: Nanomechanics
Session co-organisers: Asa Barber, Gerhard Dehm
Nanomechanical studies depended on a range of microscopy techniques to record and observe sample response to external loading. This nanomechanics session will highlight recent developments in microscopy techniques and their application in understanding the mechanical behaviour of materials, both natural and synthetic, at nanometre length scales. In particular, the development of novel microscopy and combinations of microscopy techniques as well as the application of nanomechanical investigations to novel materials and phenomena are encouraged.
