Finite size effect on the piezoelectric properties of ZnO nanobelts: A molecular dynamics approach
Abstract The size scale effect on the piezoelectric response of bulk ZnO and ZnO nanobelts has been studied using molecular dynamics simulation. Six molecular dynamics models of ZnO nanobelts are… Expand
Fast Magnetic Domain-Wall Motion in a Ring-Shaped Nanowire Driven by a Voltage.
Magnetic domain-wall motion driven by a voltage dissipates much less heat than by a current, but none of the existing reports have achieved speeds exceeding 100 m/s. Here phase-field and… Expand
Solid–solid transformations via nanoscale intermediate interfacial phase: Multiple structures, scale and mechanics effects
Abstract Solid–solid ( SS ) phase transformations via nanometer-size intermediate melts ( IMs ) within the SS interface, hundreds of degrees below melting temperature, were predicted… Expand
A roadmap for electronic grade 2D materials
Controlled synthesis of 2D transition metal dichalcogenides: from vertical to planar MoS2
Among post-graphene two dimensional (2D) materials, transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs, such as MoS2) have attracted significant attention due to their superior properties for potential… Expand
Bottom-up synthesis of vertically oriented two-dimensional materials
Understanding nucleation and growth of two-dimensional (2D) and layered materials is a challenging topic due to the complex van der Waals interactions between layers and substrate. The morphology of… Expand
The strong influence of internal stresses on the nucleation of a nanosized, deeply undercooled melt at a solid-solid phase interface.
The effect of elastic energy on nucleation and disappearance of a nanometer size intermediate melt (IM) region at a solid-solid (S1S2) phase interface at temperatures 120 K below the melting… Expand
Propagating phase interface with intermediate interfacial phase: Phase field approach
An advanced three-phase phase field approach (PFA) is suggested for a nonequilibrium phase interface that contains an intermediate phase, in particular, a solid-solid interface with a nanometer-sized… Expand
Systematic design of high-strength multicomponent metamaterials
Abstract The emergence of additive manufacturing, along with the introduction of the concept of metamaterials, allows the synthesis of high-performance materials with superior specific strength. With… Expand
A phase-field approach to solid–solid phase transformations via intermediate interfacial phases under stress tensor
Abstract A thermodynamically consistent phase-field (PF) theory for phase transformations (PTs) between three different phases is developed with emphases on the effect of a stress tensor and… Expand
