Investigation of Nonlinear Elastic Behavior of Two-Dimensional Molybdenum Disulfide

Datetime:2016/6/29 23:02:14hit:10500


Investigation of Nonlinear Elastic Behavior of Two-Dimensional Molybdenum Disulfide. The present study investigates the nonlinear elastic properties of a single-layer molybdenum disulfide crystal through experiment, finite element modeling, and density functional theory. Suspended single-layer molybdenum disulfide crystals are suspended over circular holes that were etched on a silicon oxide surface. Crystals are loaded at the center with an atomic force microscope until fracture occurs. The load-displacement curve is used to determine the pretension and linear-elastic response of the crystal. The force at which fracture occurs gives insight into the intrinsic strength and higher order elastic constants of the crystal. These experiments provide a platform to validate first-principles derivation of fifth-order elastic constants for in-plane stiffness using density functional theory. The derived higher order elastic constants are used in a finite element model to predict the breaking strength of two-dimensional molybdenum disulfide. The study bridges the gap between density functional theory and finite element analysis with experimental evidence.
