<p>Given the large surface-to-volume ratio of nanoscale and nanostructured materials and devices, their performance is often dominated by processes occurring at free surfaces or interfaces. By connecting a material's atomic structure and thermo-mechanical response, molecular dynamics is helping researchers better understand and quantify these processes.</p>
