3.052 Nanomechanics of Materials and Biomaterials

Class Info

Latest scientific developments and discoveries in the field of nanomechanics, i.e. the deformation of extremely tiny (10-9 meters) areas of synthetic and biological materials. Lectures include a description of normal and lateral forces at the atomic scale, atomistic aspects of adhesion, nanoindentation, molecular details of fracture, chemical force microscopy, elasticity of individual macromolecular chains, intermolecular interactions in polymers, dynamic force spectroscopy, biomolecular bond strength measurements, and molecular motors.

This class has 3.032 as a prerequisite.

3.052 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by C. Ortiz.

Lecture occurs 12:00 PM to 13:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 4-265.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
