Article
A great variety of electrically conductive micro-/nano-helices provide the unique interconversion of torsional rotation and linear deformation, which makes them the excellent elements as electromechanical actuators in artificial muscle. In this paper, a comprehensive theory has been constructed for quantitatively analyzing the electromechanical pro...

Chiral structures play an important role in natural sciences due to their great variety and potential applications. A perversion connecting two helices with opposite chirality creates a dual-chirality helical structure. In this paper, we develop a novel model to explore quantitatively the mechanical behavior of normal, binormal and transversely iso...
Article
In this paper, the dual-frequency (DF) glow discharges in atmospheric helium were experimented by electrical and optical measurements in terms of current voltage characteristics and optical emission intensity. It is shown that the waveforms of applied voltages or discharge currents are the results of low frequency (LF) waveforms added to high frequ...
Article
The existence and stability of optical solitons in the semi-infinite gap of parity-time (PT)-symmetric optical lattices with competing cubic and quintic nonlinearities are investigated numerically. The fundamental and dipole solitons can exist only with focusing quintic nonlinearity; however, they are always linearly unstable. With the competing ef...
Article
Full-text available
Double helix structures, ubiquitous in nature from nano- to macro- scales, have attracted particular interest due to their unique morphology. Compared to the double nanohelices with the commonest circular cross sections, those with asymmetric cross sections have better mechanical properties for applications in the micro-/nanoelectromechanical syste...
Article
Full-text available
Elliptic vortex solitons are investigated in anisotropic nonlocal media with more general formulations. We address the existence and dynamics of such solitons analytically and numerically. The solution of elliptic vortex solitons depends on the eccentricity of both the input beam and nonlocal response function. With different degrees of nonlocality...
Article
Full-text available
The existence and stability of gap solitons are investigated in the semi-infinite gap of a parity-time (PT)-symmetric periodic potential (optical lattice) with a higher-order diffraction. The Bloch bands and band gaps of this PT-symmetric optical lattice depend crucially on the coupling constant of the fourth-order diffraction, whereas the phase tr...
Article
Double helix nanostructures have been the object of intense theoretical and experimental investigations in recent years due to their various types of available materials and unique morphology. Among these structures, rope-like double nanohelices of two strands in contact along a line can be obtained using any one-dimensional nanostructure. In this...

Full-text available
The machining-induced residual defects and stress in subsurfaces determine the mechanical properties of the finished surfaces of bulk materials. In this paper, three-dimensional molecular dynamics simulations of AFM-based nanoindentation using diamond indenters are conducted on machining-induced surfaces of single-crystal copper. The simulation res...
Article
Full-text available
The controllable fabrication of self-scrolling SiGe/Si/Cr helical nanoribbons on Si(111) substrates is investigated. The initial lateral etching profile of the Si(111) substrates shows a 2-fold rotational symmetry using 4% ammonia solution, which provides guidance for initial scrolling of one-end-fixed nanoribbons to form helical structures. The ch...
Article
Mechanical properties of self-scrolling binormal nanohelices with a rectangular cross-section are investigated under uniaxial tensile and compressive loads using nanorobotic manipulation and Cosserat curve theory. Stretching experiments demonstrate that small-pitch nanohelices have an exceptionally large linear elasticity region and excellent mecha...
Article
We have proposed a comprehensive model based on a Cosserat curve to investigate the strain-driven self-rolling mechanism for anomalous coiling of multilayer nanohelices from the biaxial-torque point of view. Special attention has been paid to the edge effects, which dominate the anomalous coiling and decrease the helicity angles to as small as 0. B...
Article
Superelasticity behavior of helices has been the focus of recent research in micro-/nano-engineering, while the traditional Kirchhoff rod model restricts itself in the bending and torsion conditions. With the aid of the concept of a Cosserat curve, a novel theoretical basis has been established for statics and dynamics of helices with essential ext...
