Real-space grid implementation of the projector augmented wave method
A grid-based real-space implementation of the Projector Augmented Wave (PAW) method of P. E. Blochl [Phys. Rev. B 50, 17953 (1994)] for Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations is presented. TheExpand

A Maximum in the Strength of Nanocrystalline Copper
We used molecular dynamics simulations with system sizes up to 100 million atoms to simulate plastic deformation of nanocrystalline copper. By varying the grain size between 5 and 50 nanometers, weExpand

Atomic-scale simulations of the mechanical deformation of nanocrystalline metals
simulations of the plastic behavior of nanocrystalline copper. The simulations show that the main deformation mode is sliding in the grain boundaries through a large number of uncorrelated events,Expand

One-dimensional metallic edge states in MoS2.
By the use of density functional calculations it is shown that the edges of a two-dimensional slab of insulating MoS2 exhibit several metallic states. These edge states can be viewed asExpand

Softening of nanocrystalline metals at very small grain sizes
Nanocrystalline solids, in which the grain size is in the nanometre range, often have technologically interesting properties such as increased hardness and ductility. Nanocrystalline metals can beExpand
