Interface stresses in nanostructured multilayered materials

R. C. Cammarata, Karl Sieradzki

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Surface and interface stresses, which are intrinsic thermodynamic quantities associated with all types of solid surfaces and interfaces are reviewed. A simple model for one type of interface stress is presented. These stresses can strongly influence the structure and mechanical behavior of nanostructured materials such as multilayered materials with ultrathin layer thicknesses.
