The Wrinkle-to-Crumple Transition in Thin Elastic Solids Abstract The last decade has seen a renaissance in the buckling of thin elastic solids, in part because of its impact on the mechanics of synthetic skins, biological tissues, textiles, and 2D materials like graphene. Significant effort has been devoted to understanding and […]
Symmetry Making and Breaking in Seeded Syntheses of Metal Nanocrystals Abstract Crystal growth theory predicts that heterogeneous nucleation will occur preferentially at defect sites, such as the vertices rather than the faces of shape-controlled seeds. Platonic metal solids are generally assumed to have vertices with nearly identical chemical potentials, and […]
