Computation and theory news, January 2018

Layered material proves to have handy electronic structure

Scientists have used spiraling X-rays to observe, for the first time, chirality, or handedness, in swirling electric patterns in a layered material.

Lithium discovered reversing out of nanoparticles in battery electrodes

Scientists have witnessed the concentration of lithium inside individual nanoparticles in a battery electrode reverse during power generation.

Incorporating hexagonal boron nitride between layers of calcium silicate should produce a tough, durable ceramic that is resistant to heat and radiation.

Using carbon nanotubes and modified graphene nano ribbons in fuel cells.

For the first time, researchers have compared measurements of a class of metals produced by neutron scattering with realistic theoretical calculations.

A crystal with an exterior case surrounding a rotating axis is the first proof that a single material can be both static and moving, or amphidynamic.

An innovative platinum and copper alloy catalyst can convert methane from shale gas into hydrocarbon fuels without becoming coated in carbon.

Nitrogen-doped carbon nanotubes or modified graphene nanoribbons could replace the platinum cathodes that currently reduce oxygen in fuel cells.

Applying pressure at the nanoscale to two layers of graphene transforms them into a super-hard, diamond-like material, termed diamene.
