Horacio D. Espinosa spends much of his time researching Composite material, Nanotechnology, Mechanics, Nanowire and Carbon nanotube. Nanocomposite, Toughness, Elastic modulus, Flexural strength and Ultimate tensile strength are subfields of Composite material in which his conducts study. His work deals with themes such as Stiffness and Semiconductor, which intersect with Nanotechnology.
The Mechanics study combines topics in areas such as Brittleness, Finite element method, Classical mechanics and Grain boundary. His Nanowire research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Piezoelectricity, Transmission electron microscopy, Characterization and Nanostructure. His Carbon nanotube study combines topics in areas such as Scanning electron microscope and Microelectromechanical systems.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Composite material, Nanotechnology, Carbon nanotube, Nanowire and Microelectromechanical systems. Many of his studies on Composite material apply to Thin film as well. In the subject of general Nanotechnology, his work in Characterization, Nanoscopic scale, Microfluidics and Nanocomposite is often linked to Nanofountain probe, thereby combining diverse domains of study.
His Carbon nanotube study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Optoelectronics and Cantilever. His Microelectromechanical systems research integrates issues from Residual stress, Mechanical engineering, Capacitive sensing, Tensile testing and Actuator. He works mostly in the field of Ceramic, limiting it down to concerns involving Brittleness and, occasionally, Mechanics.
Composite material, Nanotechnology, Electroporation, Graphene and Characterization are his primary areas of study. His Composite material study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Anisotropy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Brittleness, Nanomechanics and Microscale chemistry in addition to Nanotechnology.
The various areas that Horacio D. Espinosa examines in his Graphene study include Oxide, Monolayer, Direct and indirect band gaps, Ultra-high vacuum and Tight binding. In his work, Microstructure is strongly intertwined with Continuum mechanics, which is a subfield of Tight binding. His Characterization research focuses on Nanoscopic scale and how it relates to Actuator.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Composite material, Nanotechnology, Graphene, Electroporation and Cell biology. His Composite material research includes elements of Monolayer and Anisotropy. His research in Nanotechnology intersects with topics in Deformation mechanism, Scanning electron microscope and Brittleness.
His Graphene study also includes
