When the size of a feature approaches the size of atomsthe very building blocks of matteroptical, electronic, magnetic, and mechanical behavior can change dramatically. Quantifying exactly how such changes occur in a material is the business of materials science and engineering. Many faculty in DMSE study how mechanical behavior changes at the nanoscale for materials such as living cells, designer polymers, bioceramics, optoelectronic materials, surface coatings, and metals. The unique experimental and computational capabilities of the NanoLab provide us with some of the best tools available to tap the potential of nanomechanical technology.
