Physicists succeed in measuring mechanical properties of 2-D monolayer materials

The scientists in Saarbrucken used a graphene monolayer that was supported on a substrate with a regular array of circular holes. … pulling force generated by the STM yields a stress-strain diagram that provides us with the key mechanical properties of the graphene membrane,” explains Hartmann.
