The Springer Series in Materials Science covers the complete spectrum of materials physics, including fundamental principles, physical properties, materials theory and design. Recognizing the increasing importance of materials science in future device technologies, the book titles in this series reflect the state-of-the-art in understanding and controlling(More)
Physical properties of materials are known to be different from the bulk at the nanometer scale. In this context, the dependence of optical properties of nanometric gold thin films with respect to film thickness is studied using density functional theory (DFT). We find that the in-plane plasma frequency of the gold thin film decreases with decreasing(More)
Reliable, tractable computational characterization of warm dense matter is a challenging task because of the wide range of important aggregation states and effective interactions involved. Contemporary best practice is to do ab initio molecular dynamics on the ion constituents with the forces from the electronic population provided by density functional(More)
To investigate the trapping and detrapping in SI-GaAs particle detectors we analyzed the signals caused by 5.48 MeV alpha particles with a charge sensitive preamplifier. From the bias and temperature dependence of these signals we determine the activation energies of two electron traps. Additional simulation and measurements of the lifetime as a function of(More)
A phononic crystal (PC) consisting of a square array of cylindrical polyvinylchloride inclusions in air is used to construct a variety of acoustic logic gates. In a certain range of operating frequencies, the PC band structure shows square-like equi-frequency contours centered off the gamma point. This attribute allows for the realization of non-collinear(More)
In this paper, we test the performance of the molecular truncation method of Mallik et al., which was originally applied at the semiempirical NDDO level, in ab initio MBPT methods. Pseudoatoms developed for the replacement of -OCH(3) and -OCH(2)CH(3) functional groups are used in optimizations of selected clusters, and the resulting geometries are compared(More)
Signal conduction between endothelial cells along the walls of vessels appears to play an important role in circulatory function. A recently developed approach to calculate analytically the spectrum of propagating compositional waves in models of multicellular architectures is extended to study putative signal conduction dynamics across networks of(More)
We present a Green's function-based perturbative approach to solving nonlinear reaction-diffusion problems in networks of endothelial cells. We focus on a single component (Ca2+), piecewise nonlinear model of endoplasmic calcium dynamics and trans-membrane diffusion. The decoupling between nonlinear reaction dynamics and the linear diffusion enables the(More)
Bose-Einstein Correlations (BEC) of three identical charged pions were studied in 4 × 10 6 hadronic Z 0 decays recorded with the OPAL detector at LEP. The genuine three-pion correlations, corrected for the Coulomb effect, were separated from the known two-pion correlations by a new subtraction procedure. A significant genuine three-pion BEC enhancement near(More)
