Lecture Overheads on Delamination Mechanics

Prof. Hutchinson open his unpublished lecture note. you can look at his homepage. I linked his lecture notes. If you are interested in this subject, it will be useful.

Nanomechanics: Response of a Strained Semiconductor Structure

This nature paper, given by F. Liu, M.G. Lagally et. al, raised a very interesting issue about the thin template layer curvature induced by growing self-assembled Ge quantum structures.

Dr. Huang, I think some potential issues are there for us to work on in future, since we group already did something with respect to viscous substrate wrinkling problem and self-assembly growing of Ge on Si. Combination of part of the two mechanisms may be helpful.

Nanoscale patterning with block copolymers

Recent Materials Today cover story: The self assembly of block copolymers offers new strategies to create patterns on the nanoscale. The polymeric constituents, substrate surface properties, and experimental conditions allow the control and optimization of patterns for specific applications. The method offers interesting possibilities in combination with high-resolution lithography methods, and could become of particular in microtechnology and biosensing ...

Sandia experimental package of piezoelectric films to be part of NASA space station experiment

This news is about piezoelectric polymer films which are developed by Sandia people. These films can be used as ultra-lighr mirrors in space telescopes. If films are made of polymer, what happen at high and low temperature in space?

I got a pretty good impression on this conference. we attended excellent seminar and poster session. Most of all, I can meet good people and talk each other. If possible, I will attend next gordon conference. I hope you guys meet there.

Moore's law:the future of Si microelectronics

This is the newest review about the future of Si microelectronics, key issues at the end of the Si roadmap, and the time frame for possible non-Si technology replacements. As the researchers in thin film areas, I think we should be aware of the directions where the industry will be, and that may help us to explore possible mechanics issues in future.
