Title:Single Crystalline Silicon Transformer
Author(s):Liu, Yu Hao
Contributor(s):Rogers, John A.; Zheng, Yan; Xu, Shuang
Subject(s):Materials Science and Engineering
Abstract:This image demonstrate a design strategy that transform rigid and brittle material, single-crystalline silicon, into curved and flexible complex three-dimensional structure at very small scale. Utilizing mechanical finite element analysis, planar pattern is designed and then attached to pre-strained silicone substrate. Upon releasing the substrate, the pattern relax, bend and buckle into a complex geometry. The image represents a triple layer buckling process that challenge the fundamental limit of materials mechanics.
