Elastic relaxation of a truncated circular cylinder with uniform dilatational eigenstrain in a half space

237_02/2003Our Editor's Choice [1] presents results of analytical calculations of the displacement and strain field induced by a linear inclusion such as a strained semiconductor quantum wire in an isotropically elastic half-space solid. The cover picture shows the total dilatation distribution in the plane perpendicular to a crescent-shape wire which is parallel to the free surface, marked by the straight red line, and, as thick curved red lines, the sections of the two truncated cylinders used to generate the wire.Frank Glas is currently in charge of the research group ‘Elaboration and Physics of Epitaxial Structures’ at the Laboratoire de Photonique et de Nanostructures, CNRS Marcoussis. His activities include experimental and theoretical studies of the structural, elastic and thermodynamical properties of III–V semiconductor alloys and epitaxial structures, analytical elasticity calculations as well as electron microscopy and microanalysis.
