Scope: Low-dimensional materials, such as nanoparticles, nanofibers, and nanotubes have at least one dimension small enough for their physical properties to lay somewhere between individual atoms and the bulk material. The dimensional constraints of these materials result in a large surface-area-to-volume ratio that allows free surface and nanoscale structural features to dominate their physical response to mechanical deformation. Papers are invited covering experimental fabrication, characterization and testing, and computational modeling of mechanical behaviors of low-dimensional materials.
