摘要:Growth of crystalline nanorods/nanowires using physical vapor deposition is a common practice on almost all major research university campuses. While the experimentation of growing such nanorods/nanowires has been going on for a decade, one question seems to have been avoided – why are nanorods/nanowires nano in linear dimension, or what are the scientific principles that define this dimension? The seminar will try to provide an answer to this very question.

Crystal growth on solid has been a focus of research since 1950s. However, the growth of crystalline nanostructures on solid, being a part of the nano fashion, has defied the established theory of crystal growth and has gone on without a systematic theory. Recently, the speaker and his associates have developed a theoretical framework of nano crystal growth, using a combination of atomistic simulations, analytical formulations, and physical vapor deposition experiments. This framework builds on three advancements of crystal growth principles: (1) the surface diffusion over steps sensitively depends on step thickness; (2) multiple-layer steps can be kinetically stabilized, in contrast to the classical theory of Schwoebel and Shipsey (1966); and (3) a characteristic length scale develops from the coupling of diffusion kinetics and kinetic stability of multiple-layer steps.

This seminar will also touch on the mechanical deformation of nanorods/nanowires, including both size-dependent elasticity and novel plasticity.
