    We developed the uniaxial strain method to compress a crystalline sample along any direction without involving Poisson's effect. The uniaxial strain is realized by inserting a composite of either the sample embedded in epoxy or the sample in frozen oil into a cylinder much harder than the sample...

    We study the effect of strain on the properties of a one-dimensional acoustic grating: a tapered optical fiber with a periodically varying diameter. Its spectral response has a strong frequency stop band for flexural waves. Changing the tension of the fiber changes the wave velocity, and so...

    A technique to measure the yield strength of thin films has been developed which combines experimental observations of deflection and plastic deformation with finite element predictions of stress. This technique relies on integrated circuit technology to build bridge and cross beam test...

    It is argued that heteroepitaxial thin films (layers) grown on a compliant substrate are not able to relax their strain elastically by large-area slip across a "weak" layer. Instead, the Matthews model of plastic relaxation is modified by supposing that the interfacial misfit dislocations relax...
