We study multiple steady states in distillation. We first analyze the simplest case of ternary homogeneous azeotropic mixtures. We show that in the case of infinite reflux and an infinite number of trays ( m / m case) one can construct bifurcation diagrams on physical grounds with the distillate flow as the bifurcation parameter. Multiple steady states(More)
When either electron or hole doped at concentrations x approximately 0.1, the LaFeAsO family displays remarkably high temperature superconductivity with Tc up to 55 K. In the most energetically stable Q-->M=(pi,pi,0) antiferromagnetic (AFM) phase comprised of tetragonal-symmetry breaking alternating chains of aligned spins, there is a deep pseudogap in the(More)
To investigate the electronic structure and magnetic properties of manganese oxide clusters, we carried out first-principles electronic structure calculations for small MnO clusters. Among various structural and magnetic configurations of the clusters, the bulklike [111]-antiferromagnetic ordering is found to be favored energetically, while the surface(More)
Dynamical mean-field methods are used to calculate the phase diagram, many-body density of states, relative orbital occupancy, and Fermi-surface shape for a realistic model of LaNiO(3)-based superlattices. The model is derived from density-functional band calculations and includes oxygen orbitals. The combination of the on-site Hunds interaction and charge(More)
The entanglement of the spin and orbital degrees of freedom through the spin-orbit coupling has been actively studied in condensed matter physics. In several iridium oxide systems, the spin-orbital entangled state, identified by the effective angular momentum jeff, can host novel quantum phases. Here we show that a series of lacunar spinel compounds, GaM4X8(More)
We synthesized uniformly sized, pencil-shaped CoO nanorods by the thermal decomposition of a cobalt-oleate complex, which was prepared from the reaction of cobalt chloride and sodium oleate. The diameters and lengths of the CoO nanorods were easily controlled by varying the experimental conditions, such as the heating rate and the amount of Co-oleate(More)
Thermoelectrics directly converts waste heat into electricity and is considered a promising means of sustainable energy generation. While most of the recent advances in the enhancement of the thermoelectric figure of merit (ZT) resulted from a decrease in lattice thermal conductivity by nanostructuring, there have been very few attempts to enhance(More)
Many important questions for high-Tc cuprates are closely related to the insulating nature of parent compounds. While there has been intensive discussion on this issue, all arguments rely strongly on, or are closely related to, the correlation strength of the materials. Clear understanding has been seriously hampered by the absence of a direct measure of(More)
To understand newly discovered superconductivity in Fe-based systems, we investigate the electronic structure and magnetic properties of Fe_{1+x}Te using first-principles density functional calculations. While the undoped FeTe has the same Fermi surface nested at (pi,pi) as in Fe arsenides, doping by approximately 0.5 electrons reveals a novel square-type(More)
Vanadium sesquioxide, V2O3, is a prototypical metal-to-insulator system where, in temperature-dependent studies, the transition always coincides with a corundum-to-monoclinic structural transition. As a function of pressure, V2O3 follows the expected behavior of increased metallicity due to a larger bandwidth for pressures up to 12.5 GPa. Surprisingly, for(More)
