Anisotropy of building blocks and their assembly into complex structures.
A revolution in novel nanoparticles and colloidal building blocks has been enabled by recent breakthroughs in particle synthesis. These new particles are poised to become the 'atoms' and 'molecules'Expand
Strong scaling of general-purpose molecular dynamics simulations on GPUs
TLDR
We describe a highly optimized implementation of MPI domain decomposition in a GPU-enabled, general-purpose molecular dynamics code, HOOMD-blue (Anderson and Glotzer, 2013). Expand
STRINGLIKE COOPERATIVE MOTION IN A SUPERCOOLED LIQUID
Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario N6A 5B7, Canada(February 1, 2008)A large-scale molecular dynamics simulation is performed on a glass-formingExpand
Dense Crystalline Dimer Packings of Regular Tetrahedra
TLDR
We present the densest known packing of regular tetrahedra with density $\phi =\frac{4000}{4671}=0.856347\ldots\,$. Expand
Excitations Are Localized and Relaxation Is Hierarchical in Glass-Forming Liquids
Supercooled glass-forming liquids are known to have complex and sluggish macroscopic dynamics. But, what are the atomic motions underlying such dynamics? Researchers from the US and Britain useExpand
Predictive Self-Assembly of Polyhedra into Complex Structures
Getting Packed If one neglects the role of specific interactions, the packing of similar-shaped objects will depend only on the particular shape of the object. Damasceno et al. (p. 453; see theExpand
Self-Assembly of CdTe Nanocrystals into Free-Floating Sheets
In their physical dimensions, surface chemistry, and degree of anisotropic interactions in solution, CdTe nanoparticles are similar to proteins. We experimentally observed their spontaneous,Expand
DYNAMICAL HETEROGENEITIES IN A SUPERCOOLED LENNARD-JONES LIQUID
We present the results of a molecular dynamics computer simulation study in which we investigate whether a supercooled Lennard-Jones liquid exhibits dynamical heterogeneities. We evaluate theExpand
Spatially heterogeneous dynamics investigated via a time-dependent four-point density correlation function
Relaxation in supercooled liquids above their glass transition and below the onset temperature of “slow” dynamics involves the correlated motion of neighboring particles. This correlated motionExpand
Disordered, quasicrystalline and crystalline phases of densely packed tetrahedra
All hard, convex shapes are conjectured by Ulam to pack more densely than spheres, which have a maximum packing fraction of φ = π/√18 ≈ 0.7405. Simple lattice packings of many shapes easily surpassExpand
