Stress-dependent Chemical Potentials and Their Applications Crystaline Solids



Crystalline solids (e.g., metals and ceramics) used in modern applications (electronics, MEMS, fuel cells, nuclear rectors, etc.) are often subjected to multi-physics driving forces (electrical, chemical, radiological, thermal, mechanical, etc.). The interactions of these different fields often determine the reliability and durability of the crystalline solids. To fully understand how the different driving forces interact requires theories and models that are capable of accounting the coupling of multi-physics processes.
