An overview on the characterization and mechanical behavior of nanoporous Gold

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In this paper we present what we believe are the most pressing issues in understanding the mechanical behavior of nanoporous foams. We have postulated that a gold foam presents the best candidate for a systematic study of nanoporous foams since it can be synthesized with a wide range of ligaments sizes and densities. We have also conducted preliminary tests that demonstrate (a) Au foams have a fracture behavior dictated by the ligament size, and (b) nanoporous Au is a high yield strength material. Thus, we have demonstrated the potential in developing nanoporous foams as a new class of high yield ... continued below
