Computation and theory news

A new study shows that samarium sulfide expands at low temperatures due to electrons moving into the outermost shell of the samarium atoms.

A novel neural network was able to reduce the time needed to discover promising materials for a flow battery from 50 years to five weeks.

Researchers have found that crumpling graphene makes it more than 10,000 times more sensitive to DNA by creating electrical ‘hotspots’.

Composite metal foams have passed so-called ‘simulated pool fire testing’, which indicates they could be used for transporting hazardous materials.

Utilizing 'hybrid data', a new analytical technique can improve the estimation of mechanical properties of metallic materials from indention tests.

Using an electrochemical cell inside a transmission electron microscope, scientists have captured in real time how lithium ions move in lithium titanate.

Researchers have shown that modifying any surface with millimeter tall peaks and valleys can reduce frost formation on that surface by 60%.

A novel analytical model can identify how twisted graphene sheets behave and determine their stability at different sizes and temperatures.

Five degrees of freedom in polycrystalline materials

Using copper as a substrate, scientists have successfully grown atom-thick sheets of hexagonal boron nitride as two-inch diameter crystals.

Prof. Barbara Rothen-Rutishauser is using an Agents of Change grant to empower women in academia

Scientists believe there may be a way to make a single material that can conduct both electricity and energy with 100% efficiency.

Scientists have developed a 3D imaging technique for observing complex behaviours in magnets, including fast-moving waves and 'tornadoes'.

Researchers have engineered two-layered nanofibers consisting of an ordered row of alternating peptides and determined how they self-assemble.

Researchers have developed a computer model that can predict the thermochemistry of a new high-performance electric solid propellant.

Researchers have found why some topological materials are 'fragile', unable to conduct current on their surface, and how to restore their conductivity.

Using two forms of tomography and an algorithm for unrolling papyrus scrolls, researchers have investigated the surfaces of cylindrical electrodes.

A new analysis of neutron scattering data has revealed that the hydrogen atoms in a metal hydride are much more tightly spaced than expected.
