    • Adhesion and friction control localized folding in supported graphene 

      Zhang, Kuan; Arroyo Balaguer, Marino (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013-05)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Graphene deposited on planar surfaces often exhibits sharp and localized folds delimiting seemingly planar regions, as a result of compressive stresses transmitted by the substrate. Such folds alter the electronic and ...
    • Computing the volume enclosed by a periodic surface and its variation to model a follower pressure 

      Rahimi Lenji, Mohammad; Zhang, Kuan; Arroyo Balaguer, Marino (2015-03-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      In modeling and numerically implementing a follower pressure in a geometrically nonlinear setting, one needs to compute the volume enclosed by a surface and its variation. For closed surfaces, the volume can be expressed ...
    • Understanding and strain-engineering wrinkle networks in supported graphene through simulations 

      Zhang, Kuan; Arroyo Balaguer, Marino (2014-12-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Wrinkle networks are ubiquitous buckle-induced delaminations in supported graphene, which locally modify the electronic structure and degrade device performance. Although the strong property-deformation coupling of graphene ...
    • Water-mediated photo-induced reduction of platinum films 

      Fraxedas Calduch, Jordi; Zhang, Kuan; Sepulveda, Borja; Esplandiu, María José; García de Andrés, Xènia; Llorca Piqué, Jordi; Pérez Dieste, Virginia; Escudero, Carlos (2019-06-11)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Platinum thin films activated ex situ by oxygen plasma become reduced by the combined effect of an intense soft X-ray photon beam and condensed water. The evolution of the electronic structure of the surface has been ...
