  • Elastic Properties of Few Nanometers Thick Polycrystalline MoS2 Membranes: A Nondestructive Study

    Graczykowski B., Sledzinska M., Placidi M., Saleta Reig D., Kasprzak M., Alzina F., Sotomayor Torres C.M. Nano Letters; 17 (12): 7647 - 7651. 2017. 10.1021/acs.nanolett.7b03669. IF: 12.712

    The performance gain-oriented nanostructurization has opened a new pathway for tuning mechanical features of solid matter vital for application and maintained performance. Simultaneously, the mechanical evaluation has been pushed down to dimensions way below 1 μm. To date, the most standard technique to study the mechanical properties of suspended 2D materials is based on nanoindentation experiments. In this work, by means of micro-Brillouin light scattering we determine the mechanical properties, that is, Young modulus and residual stress, of polycrystalline few nanometers thick MoS2 membranes in a simple, contact-less, nondestructive manner. The results show huge elastic softening compared to bulk MoS2, which is correlated with the sample morphology and the residual stress. © 2017 American Chemical Society.
