Effects of size and surface on the auxetic behaviour of monolayer graphene kirigami

Cai, Kun; Luo, Jing; Ling, Yiru; Wan, Jing; Qin, Qing-Hua


Graphene is an active element used in the design of nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS) owing to its excellent in-plane physical properties on mechanical, electric and thermal aspects. Considering a component requiring negative Poisson's ratio in NEMS, a graphene kirigami (GK) containing periodic re-entrant honeycombs is a natural option. This study demonstrates that a GK with specific auxetic property can be obtained by adjusting the sizes of its honeycombs. Using molecular dynamics...[Show more]
