Investigating the instabilities in nanostructures

Abstract:
Dr. Catherine Bréchignac, a physicist at the Clusters and Nanophysics Group at the Laboratoire Aimé Cotton at the Université Paris Sud, who earlier this year was named chairwoman of CNRS, the French National Center for Scientific Research, explained her group's recent work to Nanowerk: "By depositing preformed antinomy clusters on a cleaved graphite surface we generated unusual polymorphic nano-islands. We used these islands as test platforms for monitoring instabilities as a function of shape, size, mass and strain."
