From atomic scale to macroscale, ripplocations describe deformation of layered solids

By Lisa McDonald / February 8, 2019

How do layered solids deform? According to new research at Drexel University, “ripplocations” account for most deformations in layered solids, from the atomic scale to the macroscale.
