Enhancing Superconductivity of Lu 5 Rh 6 Sn 18 by Atomic Disorder

April 19, 2021
A. Slebarski, M. Fijalkowski, M. M. Maska, J. Deniszczyk, P. Zajdel, Benjamin Trump, A. Yakovenko
For the number of skutterudite-related cage compounds such as cubic R3M4Sn13 (R = Ca or La, M = transition d-electron metal) or tetragonal Y5Rh6Sn18 we have previously reported the impact of various atomic defects in the crystal lattices on the normal

Cluster Morphology of Colloidal Systems with Competing Interactions

April 15, 2021
Nestor E. Valadez-Perez, Yun Liu, Ramon Castaneda-Priego
Reversible aggregation of purely short-ranged attractive colloidal particles leads to the formation of clusters with a fractal dimension that only depends on the second virial coefficient. The addition of a long-ranged repulsion to the potential modifies

Magnetic Particle Self-Assembly at Functionalized Interfaces

April 13, 2021
Apurve Saini, Katharina Theis-Brohl, Alexandros Koutsioubas, Kathryn L. Krycka, Julie Borchers, Max Wolff
We study the assembly of magnetite nanoparticles in water-based ferrofluids in wetting layers close to silicon substrates with different functionalization without and with an out-of-plane magnetic field. For particles of nominal sizes 5 nm, 15 nm and 25 nm

Noncollinear Ferromagnetic Weyl Semimetal with Anisotropic Anomalous Hall Effect

Hung-Yu Yang, Bahadur Singh, Jonathan Gaudet, Baozhu Lu, Cheng-Yi Huang, Wei-Chi Chiu, Shin-Ming Huang, Baokai Wang, Faranak Bahrami, Bochao Xu, Jacob Franklin, Ilya Sochnikov, David Graf, Guangyong Xu, Yang Zhao, Christina Hoffman, Hsin Lin, Darius Torchinsky, Collin L. Broholm, Arun Bansil, Fazel Tafti

Exploring the First High Entropy Thin Film Libraries: Composition spread-controlled Crystalline Structure

March 19, 2021
Thi X. Nguyen, Yen-Hsun Su, Jason Hattrick-Simpers, Takahiro Nagata, Howard Joress, Kao-Shuo Chang, Suchismita Sarker, Apurva Mehta, Jyh-Ming Ting
Thin films of two types of high-entropy oxides (HEOs) have been deposited on 76.2 mm Si wafers using combinatorial sputter deposition. In one type of the oxides, (MgZnMnCoNi)Ox, all the metals have a stable divalent oxidation state and similar cationic

Betraying excitonic processes and chemical bonding in MoS2 by x-ray-absorption near-edge structure and resonant-Auger electron emission

March 10, 2021
Joseph Woicik, Nicholas F. Quackenbush, Conan Weiland, Eric L. Shirley, Abdul K. Rumaiz, Michael T. Brumbach, James M. Ablett
Electron core-hole processes at absorption edges sport several signatures, primarily in the form of bound states and/or excitonic enhancement. Through analysis of the resonant-Raman Auger effect for the 2-dimensional transition-metal dichalcogenide MoS2

The OCEAN Project

March 10, 2021
Eric L. Shirley, John T. Vinson, Keith Gilmore
This chapter presents a high-level description of a suite of programs denoted by the acronym OCEAN (Obtaining Core Excitation spectra ab initio and with NBSE), where NBSE denotes the underlying NIST Bethe-Salpeter Equation program. The main computational

Operando Study of Thermal Oxidation of Monolayer MoS2

March 1, 2021
Sangwook Park, Angel Garcia-Esparza, Hadi Abroshan, Baxter Abraham, John Vinson, Allesandro Gallo, Dennis Nordlund, Joonsuk Park, Taeho R. Kim, Roberto Alonso-Mori, Dimosthenis Sokaras, Xiaolin Zheng
Monolayer MoS2 is a promising semiconductor to overcome the physical dimension limits of the microelectronic devices. Understanding the thermochemical stability of MoS2 is essential since these devices generate heat and are susceptible to oxidative

Controlling Bicontinuous Structures through Solvent Segregation Driven Gel

February 16, 2021
Yuyin Xi, Juscelino Leao, Qiang Ye, Ronald S. Lankone, Li Piin Sung, Yun Liu
The past decade has seen increased research interests in studying bicontinuous structures formed by the colloidal self-assembly due to their many useful applications. A new type of colloidal gel, solvent segregation driven gel (SeedGel), has been recently

National Institute of Standards and Technology Environmental Scan 2020

February 9, 2021
Heather Evans, Kristen K. Greene, William M. Healy, Elizabeth Hoffman, Kate Rimmer, Anna V. Sberegaeva, Neil M. Zimmerman
The 2020 National Institute of Standards and Technology Environmental Scan provides an analysis of key external factors that could impact NIST and the fulfillment of its mission in coming years. The analyses were conducted through four separate lenses

Strong Ferromagnetism Achieved via Breathing Lattices in Atomically Thin Cobaltites

January 27, 2021
Sisi Li, Qinghua Zhang, Shan Lin, Xiahan Sang, Ryan F. Need, Manuel A. Roldan, Wenjun Cui, Zhiyi Hu, Qiao Jin, Shuang Chen, Jiali Zhao, Jia-Ou Wang, Jiesu Wang, Meng He, Chen Ge, Can Wang, Hui-Bin Lu, Zhenping Wu, Haizhong Guo, Xin Tong, Tao Zhu, Brian Kirby, Lin Gu, Kui-juan Jin, Er-Jia Guo
Low-dimensional quantum materials that retain strong ferromagnetism down to monolayer thickness hold great potential for spintronic applications. However, ferromagnetism in the transition metal oxides decays severely when the thickness is scaled to the

Solution Structure of Zinc-Seamed C-alkylpyrogallol[4]arene Dimeric Nanocapsules
