Diffusion, Deformation, and Damage in Lithium-Ion Batteries and Microelectronics
This thesis explores mechanical behavior of microelectronic devices and lithium-ion batteries. We first examine electromigration-induced void formation in solder bumps by constructing a theory that couples electromigration ...
Plastic Behavior of Polycrytalline Thin Films: Discrete Dislocation Study
Explaining the work-hardening behavior of crystalline materials and the size dependent plasticity has been a long lasting problem. Plastic deformation mainly arises from the collective motion of dislocations. Although ...
