  • Sorin, Fabien (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Optical fibers and semiconductor devices differ significantly in their properties and their processing approaches. The latter require an assembly of metal, insulator and semiconductor materials into complex geometries with ...
  • Orf, Nicholas D (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Electronic and optoelectronic device processing is commonly thought to be incompatible with much simpler thermal drawing techniques used in optical fiber production. The incorporation of metals, polymer insulators, and ...
  • Tweedie, Catherine Anne (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The development of nanoscale polymeric materials for mechanical applications necessitates advances in small-volume experimental techniques and analyses that reflect the viscoelastoplastic behavior of such materials. In ...
  • Song, Juha (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Biological materials have developed hierarchical and heterogeneous material nanostructures and microstructures to provide protection against various environmental threats that, in turn, provide bioinspired clues to man-made, ...
  • Bruet, Benjamin J. F. (Benjamin Jean Fernand), 1980- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    (cont.) revealed jagged and branched crack fronts at plate interface, tortuous crack paths, non-uniform angles of polygons (suggesting possible intrinsic deformability and displacement/sliding). The technique of nanoindentation ...
  • Buell, Sezen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Nanostructured fibrous materials have been made more readily available in large part owing to recent advances in electrospinning, which is a technique for the production of nanofibers with diameters down to the range of a ...
  • Bruet, Benjamin J. F. (Benjamin Jean Fernand), 1980- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Gastropod mollusk nacre tablets and Polypterus senegalus armored scales share common features such as a very complex and changing structure spanning several length scales. The smallest building blocks are single crystals, ...
  • Ross, Francis L. (Francis LaFayette), 1968- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    A systematic investigation of the microstructure produced in ion-induced chemical vapor deposition (11-CVD) of copper from copper(I)hexafluoroacetylacetonatevinyltrimethylsilane (Cu(I)hfacVTMS) gas precursor is reported. ...
  • Tong, Angela, 1983- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Technology today is directed towards building smaller devices. To accommodate this development, printing methods are needed. Some printing methods that are used include lithography, micro-contact printing, and inkjet ...
  • Rupert, Timothy J. (Timothy John) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Nanocrystalline materials have experienced a great deal of attention in recent years, largely due to their impressive array of physical properties. In particular, nanocrystalline mechanical behavior has been of interest, ...
  • Charlton, Devon, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
  • Barsotti, Robert J., Jr (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Over the past 10-15 years, there have been tremendous research efforts in the synthesis of nanomaterials with unique electronic properties. Much less work, however, has focused on the incorporation of the nanomaterials ...
  • Packard, Corinne E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Bulk metallic glasses, though attractive for use in structural applications for their high strength and elastic limit, display several unacceptable features upon deformation, including quasi-brittle failure along shear ...
  • Tai, Kuangshin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Although the mechanics of bone has been studied extensively at the micro- and macro-scale, the nano-scopic level is perhaps the most illuminating as this is the length scale at which the individual constituents interact. ...
  • Han, Lin, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In this thesis, the shear and self-adhesion nanomechanical properties between opposing cartilage aggrecan macromolecules were probed. In addition, nanoscale dynamic oscillatory mechanical properties of cartilage and its ...
  • Van Vliet, Krystyn J. (Krystyn Joy), 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    In this thesis, experimental, computational and analytical approaches are employed to examine systematically the mechanisms of deformation in crystalline materials. Such insight can be used to exploit and avoid contact in ...
  • Payne, Jeffrey C. (Jeffrey Christopher), 1981- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    The advancement of the fabrication of a one-dimensional photonic crystal without time-reversal and space-inversion symmetries was pursued. Theoretical studies predict that such a system would exhibit unusual optical ...
  • Gear, Christopher S. (Christopher Stanwood) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis describes the theory and fabrication of inhomogeneous Liquid Crystal anchoring layers. While chemical anchoring techniques have proved useful for many applications, especially Liquid Crystal Displays, they have ...
  • Cohen-Tanugi, David H. (David Henri Michaël) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    With conventional water sources in short and decreasing availability, new technologies for water supply have a crucial role to play in addressing the world's clean water needs in the 21st century. In this thesis, we examine ...
  • Cohen-Tanugi, David (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Desalination is one of the most promising approaches to supply new fresh water in the face of growing water issues. However, commercial reverse osmosis (RO) techniques still suffer from important drawbacks. In order for ...
