Nano-mechanical engineering of 2D materials – CHACAL

Submission summary

The aim of the research project CHACAL is to have a better understanding of the mechanical stability of 2D materials under localized
stress. The experimental original approach consists in using the emergence process of dislocations at the 2D materials/substrate
interface, coming from the plastically-deformed substrates. The mechanical behavior of foils under different mechanical conditions is
investigated at the atomic scale by scanning tunneling microscopy (taking advantage of the original experimental UHV set-up
Nanoplast), in order to identify, or even control, the appearance of specific morphological nanostructures. The experimental
UHV-STM data are compared with molecular dynamic simulations by atomic potentials.
