Researchers have used state-of-the-art computational tools to model the chaotic behavior of ‘strange’ metals down to the lowest possible temperatures.

Maximum Chern number can be reached and controlled in a real material

Doped graphene nanoribbons could help in quantum computing

A newly synthesized compound has helped scientists understand the elusive quantum spin liquid state, but also raised questions as well.

Scientists move synthesis from the lab to the computer

Researchers have shown that thin sheets of material with periodic cuts can be used to mold an inflating balloon into pre-programmed shapes.

A computational model for understanding how changes in material nanostructure affect conductivity could lead to new energy storage devices.

Researchers have used a supercomputer to perform real-time simulations of wear and friction on alloys of copper and nickel at atomic scales.

Researchers have developed a novel form of non-volatile computer memory, based on sliding atomically thin layers of metal over one another.
