Nano-mechanical studies of silicon films

Nano-mechanical studies of silicon films

Shown are details of a custom environmental indenter used to test thin film electrodes made of amorphous silicon. The device was used to develop a detailed nano-mechanical study of mechanical degradation processes in silicon thin films. (Credit: Rob Felt, Georgia Tech)
