Hello, I am an undergraduate Physics student at the University of Florida. I am interested in Fracture Mechanics and Nanotechnology. I am curious as to how Silica nanowires are able to be stretched to such amazing lengths. I have come across macroscopic descriptions before but would like to understand plasticity and fracture in Silica nanowires in terms of bond breaking and formation. Thank you in advance. -Grace Greenlee
