Computation and theory news, December 2019

Defects in the crystalline lattice of lithium-ion battery cathodes can speed up the rate of charge and discharge by forcing lithium ions to take detours.

Using an electron microscope, researchers have, for the first time, seen atomic scale defects that dictate the properties of a promising semiconductor.

A novel design strategy for identifying new materials exhibiting a metal-insulator transition has led to the discovery of molybdenum oxynitride.

A new model has revealed how tiny tweaks to the molecular shapes in non-fullerene acceptors can improve the performance of organic solar cells.

Robotic high throughput polymer generation

By studying the normal state of cuprate superconductors, researchers have discovered an abrupt shift in the behavior of electrons with increased doping.

chemical compounds based on thorium and hydrogen conduct electricity without resistance at relatively high temperatures

A new ion-transport membrane technology based on microporous polymers could reduce the cost of storing energy and purifying water.

Using an electron microscope, researchers have unlocked the fundamental physics of how roughness affects soft material adhesion to a surface.

Cobalt-doped molybdenum disulfide grown on a carbon cloth makes an effective catalyst for converting dinitrogen into ammonia.

Using Monte Carlo calculations, scientists have observed the strange metal state in the Hubbard model of materials with strongly correlated electrons.

By adding cobalt impurities, researchers have observed a surprising quantum effect in a high-temperature iron-containing superconductor.
