Spatially resolved Raman scattering is used to probe the strain distribution in CdS nanosheets. We observe both significant strains and a significant strain gradient across the nanosheets. The magnitude of the strain suggests that electronic properties of the CdS nanosheets will be influenced as well. Using spatially resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy, we show that the band gap of the nanosheet experiences changes in the energy gap of 20 meV across the width of the nanosheet, which are consistent with our observations of the strain.

    Sheet resistance ( R s) reductions are presented for antimony doped layers in strained Si. We use micro-Raman spectroscopy to characterise the impact of a low energy (2 keV) Sb implantation into a thin strained Si layer on the crystalline quality and resultant stress in the strained Si. The use...

    An elastic-plastic axisymmetric steel bending plate subjected to a repeated variable load (RVL) is considered. The solution to the load optimization problem at shakedown is complicated because the stress-strain state of the dissipative systems (e.g. the plate plastic deforming) depends on their...

    Without uncertainty by applying external loads on beams, bending is created. The created bending in I-beams, puts one of the flanges in tension and the other one in compression. With increasing of bending, compression flange buckled and beam in out of its plane direction twisted, this twisting...
