Researchers of FORTH / ICE-HT published in the high-impact scientific journal Nature Communications a study demonstrating that in-situ uniaxial tensile testing combined with Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) at room temperature can be employed to highlight the formation of complex morphologies in graphene flakes, such as the creation of mosaic patterns, entitled:
“Mosaic pattern formation in exfoliated graphene by mechanical deformation“,
Nature Comms, 10: Article number: 1572 (2019)
by Pastore Carbone M.G., Manikas A.C., Souli I., Pavlou C., and Galiotis C.
This study opens a whole dearth of new applications in the area of nano-fluidics but also in photo-electronics and sensor technologies.
