Abstract

This paper aims to identify a well-defined effective diameter of Nanowires (NWs) in evaluating their Young's modulus and to investigate the physical mechanisms behind the achieved surface elasticity. To this end, GaN NWs were considered for which a layer-wise model was developed and the tensile...

description This paper aims to identify a well-defined effective diameter of Nanowires (NWs) in evaluating their Young's modulus and to investigate the physical mechanisms behind the achieved surface elasticity.

It was shown that two previously defined effective diameters result in an opposing effect of the surface elasticity and reversed size-dependence of the overall Young's modulus. Subsequently, a proper effective diameter was decided for the NWs, which enables one to correctly interpret atomistic simulations in terms of continuum mechanics concepts.
