Dr. Graham Cross

Associate Professor (Physics)
SNIAM

Associate Professor (CRANN)

Dr Graham Cross received his PhD degree in condensed matter physics from McGill University in Montréal, Canada in 2000, where he performed research in nanomechanics via scanned probe and field ion microscopy methods in ultra-high vacuum. From 1999 to 2001 he was FCAR postdoctoral fellow at IBM Research in Zürich, Switzerland. There he investigated polymer deformation and relaxation at the nanoscale and helped characterise the operational window of the atomic-force-microscopy-based data storage project Millipede. After a brief stay at the University of Zürich working on single atom field emission, he joined the nanomechanics group at the SFI Nanoscience Laboratory in Trinity College Dublin in 2002. At Trinity College Dublin, Dr. Cross has pursued a programme of understanding the rheological and tribological issues underlying massively parallel nanostructure fabrication by mechanical forming of soft condensed matter systems. His research interests include confined and large strain deformation behaviour of materials at the nanoscale, the production of nanodevices by mechanical forming, contact and transport at single asperities and structured interfaces, and point probe methods and instrumentation including nanoindentation and atomic force and field ion microscopy.
