Mechanics, Dynamics, and Growth

Fabricating and operating nanomechanical devices depends crucially on their thermal and mechanical stability. The Theory Facility has three internal and one user project in this area, with focus on friction and the pressure dependence of vibrational spectroscopy of carbon nanotubes.
