Computation and theory news, March 2016

Novel devices that produce electricity from pulses of heat traveling along carbon nanotubes can generate as much power as today's batteries.

Scientists have discovered that electrons in novel crystalline materials called Weyl semi-metals sink into the crystal through special conductive channels.

Scientists have been able to create the world's thinnest lens from molybdenum disulphide, due to its remarkable optical properties.

The vibrations of the outermost atomic layers at the surface of a nanomaterial are comparatively large and play an important role in how it behaves.

A new machine learning tool can predict a theoretical polymer's electronic properties from its atomic configuration.

Low-frequency Raman spectroscopy can characterize the patterns produced when 2D materials are stacked on top of each other and twisted.

By combining microscopy and theoretical calculations, scientists have studied the properties of a promising next-generation energy storage material.

A new metamaterial made from specially-patterned polymeric materials can separate and concentrate chemical compounds.

Scientists have discovered a new one atom-thick material made from silicon, boron and nitrogen that is stable and semiconducting.

Scientists have zoomed in on the quantum phase transition that could explain why copper oxides are high-temperature superconductors.

Scientists have discovered that the rearrangement of particles during deformation resembles avalanches that span the entire material.
