Buckling in nanomechanical films
Wrinkling is a common everyday occurrence. Over the last decade wrinkling in thin films has become an interesting topic. Nearly all studies to date have focused on the underlying physics or how the wrinkles can be used for a specific application. With more and more devices being created from stacked materials, a need for ways to prevent buckling has arisen. In this article we highlight the prevention of wrinkling in nanoscale thin films.
