Phase competition underlies many remarkable and technologically important phenomena in transition metal oxides. Vanadium dioxide (VO2) exhibits a first-order metal-insulator transition (MIT) near room temperature, where conductivity is suppressed and the lattice changes from tetragonal to monoclinic on cooling. Ongoing attempts to explain this coupled(More)
Phonon densities of states (DOS) of ScF 3 with the cubic DO 9 structure were obtained from inelastic neutron scattering experiments, and from first-principles density functional theory calculations. The overall agreement between experiment and computation was good, so we present here some additional observations of calculated phonons. The radial(More)
We study the structural and dynamical properties of paramagnetic colloidal spheres interacting as repulsive dipoles in two dimensions and confined between parallel hard walls. We observed that the structure and dynamics of the self-assembled colloids are strongly dependent upon the width of the confining channel. The system exhibits re-entrant behavior as a(More)

In this paper, we articulate a novel particle-centric method to simulate the dynamics of brittle fracture for anisotropic materials. The key motivation of this paper is to develop a new hybrid, particle-based simulation that inherits advantages from both powerful finite element methods and popular mesh-free methods, while overcoming certain disadvantages of(More)

—To keep phase balance and improve output voltage quality, a novel multiple-loop control system in 400-Hz inverter power supply based on unipolar sinusoidal pulse width modulation (SPWM) is proposed. The causes of phase imbalance in a three-phase combined inverter power system are analyzed, and a new multiple-loop control strategy based on phase control is(More)
AtomSim, a collection of interfaces for computational crystallography simulations , has been developed. It uses forcefield-based dynamics through physics engines such as the General Utility Lattice Program, and can be integrated into larger computational frameworks such as the Virtual Neutron Facility for processing its dynamics into scattering functions,(More)
