Topology, Landscapes, and Biomolecular Energy Transport

Justin E. Elenewski, Kirill Velizhanin, Michael P. Zwolak
While ubiquitous, energy redistribution remains a poorly understood facet of the nonequilibrium thermodynamics of biomolecules. At the molecular level, finite

An energy-resolved atomic scanning probe

Daniel S. Gruss, Chih-Chun Chien, Julio T. Barreiro, Massimiliano Di Ventra, Michael P. Zwolak
The density of states is a concept that is ubiquitous in classical and quantum physics, since it quantifies the energy distribution of states available in a

A Spin-1 Representation for Dual-Funnel Energy Landscapes

Justin E. Elenewski, Kirill Velizhanin, Michael P. Zwolak
The interconversion between left- and right-handed helical folds of a polypeptide defines a dual-funneled free energy landscape. In this context, the funnel

Metastable morphological states of catalytic nanoparticles

Pin A. Lin, Bharath NMN Natarajan, Michael P. Zwolak, Renu Sharma
During the catalytic synthesis of graphene, nanotubes, fibers, and other nanostructures, many intriguing phenomena occur, such as phase separation
