Atomic-scale investigation on mechanical behaviors is highly necessary to fully understand the fracture mechanics especially of brittle materials, which are determined by atomic-scale phenomena (e.g., lattice trapping). Here, exfoliated anisotropic rhenium disulfide (ReS2) flakes are used to investigate atomic-scale crack propagation depending on the propagation directions. While the conventional strain-stress curves exhibit a strong anisotropy depending on the cleavage direction of ReS2, but…

Anisotropic Fracture Dynamics Due to Local Lattice Distortions.
It is shown that local atomic distortions from the different types of atoms causes a propagation anisotropy in suspended WS2 monolayers by combining annular dark-field scanning transmission electron microscopy and empirical molecular dynamics that are validated by first-principles calculations.
Interlocking Friction Governs the Mechanical Fracture of Bilayer MoS2.
The results provide a systematic understanding of the effects that different stacking and loading conditions have on the failure mechanisms and crack-tip behaviors in the bilayer MoS2 systems and provide mechanistic insight into its mechanical failure.
Distinctive in-Plane Cleavage Behaviors of Two-Dimensional Layered Materials.
These distinct in-plane cleavage behaviors can be understood as a result of the competition between the release of the elastic energy and the increase of the surface energy during the fracture process and provide a fast and noninvasive method using optical microscopy to identify the lattice direction of mechanical exfoliated 2D layered materials.
Atomically Sharp Crack Tips in Monolayer MoS2 and Their Enhanced Toughness by Vacancy Defects.
The results show that monolayer 2D materials are ideal for revealing fundamental aspects of fracture mechanics not previously possible with thicker materials, similar to studies of dislocation behavior in 2D material.
Low-speed fracture instabilities in a brittle crystal
When a brittle material is loaded to the limit of its strength, it fails by the nucleation and propagation of a crack. The conditions for crack propagation are created by stress concentration in the
Dislocation-Driven Deformations in Graphene
The dynamics of dislocation pairs in graphene are studied with single-atom sensitivity, and stepwise dislocation movement along the zig-zag lattice direction mediated either by a single bond rotation or through the loss of two carbon atoms is examined.
Dynamical observations on the crack tip zone and stress corrosion of two-dimensional MoS2
The observed high-frequency emission of dislocations is beyond previous understanding of the fracture of brittle MoS2, and strain analysis reveals dislocation emission to be closely associated with the crack propagation path in nanoscale.
Cleavage tendency of anisotropic two-dimensional materials: Re X 2 ( X = S , Se ) and WT e 2
With unique distorted 1T structure and the associated in-plane anisotropic properties, mono- and few-layer ReX2 (X=S, Se) have recently attracted particular interest. Based on experiment and
Role of sulphur atoms on stress relaxation and crack propagation in monolayer MoS2.
While molybdenum atoms carry most of the mechanical load, it is shown that the sliding motion of weakly bonded sulphur atoms mediate crack tip stress relaxation, which helps the tip sustain very high, localized stress levels.
Interface-Driven Partial Dislocation Formation in 2D Heterostructures.
This study demonstrates interface-driven stacking boundaries in WS2 using epitaxially grown tungsten disulfide (WS2 ) on wrinkled graphene and clarifies significant substrate morphology effects even in vdW epitaxy.
