This week’s image comes from a recent paper by Rittweger et al., published in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, in which they investigate the electronic transport properties of face-centred cubic (fcc) bulk Pb in the presence of electron-phonon interaction. Using ab initio methods, Rittweger et… Read More ›
Can the adsorption of transition metals functionalize the novel 2D material borophene for nanoelectronic applications? In a recent Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter paper, Alvarez-Quiceno et al. perform a systematic first-principles investigation aimed at answering this question. They discuss their findings… Read More ›
For the first time, a 7×7 intensity modulation of electronic band structure has been observed in the 7×7–reconstructed Si(111) surface. Sheverdyaeva et al. give an account of their research published in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter.
In a recent Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter paper, Maciej Bieniek, Tomasz Woźniak and Paweł Potasz investigate atomically thin bismuth nanostructures in the context of stability of their topological properties.
Zacharias Fthenakis and Nektarios Lathiotakis propose a fast and accurate description of the mechanical response of any 2D structure under any strain conditions.
We talk with Dr Ion Errea of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) about is work, motivation, and advice for young researchers.
A new approach enables fully ab initio simulations of the contacts between 3D and 2D materials.
Does ordering of vacancies and their type play any role on stability of MoN and TaN?
