New Paper by FORTH researchers published in Nature Communications
Apr 22, 2019Graphene, as one-atom-thick membrane, is susceptible to morphological instabilities such as wrinkles, crumples and folds, which are attributed to several physical causes, such as the mismatch between its thermal expansion and its host substrate or the relaxation of a pre-strained substrate. A particular pattern encountered in graphene grown via Chemical Vapour Deposition is that of mosaic formation, which results from the imposition of thermo-mechanical stresses upon cooling from high temperatures.
