Computation and theory news, April 2019

Researchers have shown that equations from graph theory can help to reveal a lot about the composition of different materials.

On taking a closer look at how nonuniform particles self-assemble, engineers were surprised to discover that it happens in multiples phases.

High-quality phosphorene nanoribbons for high-speed electronics

For the first time, researchers have managed to create an anti-ordered state with liquid crystals, where they avoid aligning along a certain direction.

Scientists have not only visualized the nanoscale structures of borophene lattices, but also built theoretical models of their crystalline forms.

‘Deep learning’ agents can accurately determine a 2D material's physical characteristics, such as strength, from minimal data on its structure.

Applying high pressures and temperatures to elements like potassium and sodium produces a new, stable state of matter that is both solid and liquid.

A metal-organic framework made of the DNA base adenine can lock the DNA base thymine within its cavities for chemical reactions.

Scientists have developed a model for predicting the shape of metal ‘islands’ sandwiched between or below 2D materials such as graphene.

Scientists have found a way to place catalysts inside the tiniest pores of different host materials, a bit like fitting a model ship inside a bottle.

Scientists have theorized a new ‘oil-and-vinegar’ approach for inducing spherical nanoparticles to self-assemble into unusual architectures.
