    • On the strain in silicon nanocrystals 

      Yılmaz, Dündar (Bilkent University, 2009)
      In this Thesis we present our achievements towards an understanding of atomistic strain mechanisms and interface chemistry in silicon nanocrystals. The structural control of silicon nanocrystals embedded in amorphous ...
    • Structural lubricity under ambient conditions 

      Cihan E.; Ipek S.; Durgun E.; Baykara M.Z. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
      Despite its fundamental importance, physical mechanisms that govern friction are poorly understood. While a state of ultra-low friction, termed structural lubricity, is expected for any clean, atomically flat interface ...
