Penn engineers show how 'perfect' materials begin to fail

10-Jun-2015

Crystalline materials have atoms that are neatly lined up in a repeating pattern. When they break, that failure tends to start at a defect, or a place where the pattern is disrupted. But how do defect-free materials break?Until recently, the question was purely theoretical; making a defect-free ...
