Special Issue on Mechanical and Thermal Reliability of Micro/Nanomaterials

Guest Editor: Takahiro Namazu (Aichi Institute of Technology) and Shugo Miyake (Kobe City College of Technology)

Preface

  • The nanomechanical resonator is a useful structure to achieve various nano-electromechanical systems (NEMS) sensing devices. In this study, systematic evaluations of the dynamic properties and m ... Read More

  • In this paper, we describe the effects of vacuum annealing on the mechanical properties of gallium (Ga)-implanted silicon (Si) nanowires (NWs) obtained by focused ion beam (FIB) fabrication. We ... Read More

  • In this paper, the structural design and experiment of MEMS resonators for accurately measuring Young’s modulus is described. To establish an accurate measurement technique for the Young’s m ... Read More

  • In this paper, we describe a way of finding the optimum resonator geometry required to determine a reasonably accurate Young’s modulus of submicron-thick Al films. The films with thicknesses r ... Read More

  • In this study, a free-standing Al/Ni exothermic multilayer is fabricated and used as a heat source for reactive soldering, instead of an Al/Ni film directly deposited on the solder layer. The fr ... Read More

  • The thermal effusivity of a Si–Ge–Au thin film was measured using a thermal microscope. A thin-film sample with sixty-seven artificial intervals each comprising Si (2.0 nm)/Au-doped ... Read More

  • In this paper, a thermal effusivity calibration procedure is proposed using a numerical calculation and measurement of a phase lag of a thermoreflectance signal based on a periodic modulation the ... Read More

  • Since the thermal anisotropy of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) depends on the direction of the carbon fibers, it is important to understand the thermal characteristics of CFRP in a three- ... Read More
