Accurate and simple analytic representation of the electron-gas correlation energy.
  • Perdew, Wang
  • Physics, Medicine
  • Physical review. B, Condensed matter
  • 15 June 1992
TLDR
A simple analytic representation of the correlation energy for a uniform electron gas, as a function of density parameter and relative spin polarization \ensuremath{\zeta}, which confirms the practical accuracy of the VWN and PZ representations and eliminates some minor problems. Expand
U/Pb zircon geochronology and tempo of the end-permian mass extinction
TLDR
Biostratigraphic controls from strata intercalated with ash beds below the boundary indicate that the Changhsingian pulse of the end-Permian extinction, corresponding to the disappearance of about 85 percent of marine species, lasted less than 1 million years. Expand
Surface Deformation and Lower Crustal Flow in Eastern Tibet
TLDR
This model predicts east-west extension on the high plateau without convective removal of Tibetan lithosphere and without eastward movement of the crust east of the plateau. Expand
Generalized gradient approximation for the exchange-correlation hole of a many-electron system.
  • Perdew, Burke, Wang
  • Physics, Medicine
  • Physical review. B, Condensed matter
  • 15 December 1996
TLDR
The hole model provides a more detailed test of these energy functionals, and also predicts the observable electron-electron structure factor. Expand
Seismic consequences of warm versus cool subduction metamorphism: examples from southwest and northeast japan
TLDR
Thermal-petrologic models predict that oceanic crust subducting beneath southwest Japan is 300 degrees to 500 degrees C warmer than beneath northeast Japan, resulting in shallower eclogite transformation and slab dehydration reactions, and possible slab melting. Expand
Electrostatic deflections and electromechanical resonances of carbon nanotubes
TLDR
The methods developed here have been applied to a nanobalance for nanoscopic particles and also to a Kelvin probe based on nanotubes, which indicates a crossover from a uniform elastic mode to an elastic mode that involves wavelike distortions in the nanotube. Expand
Synthesis of large arrays of well-aligned carbon nanotubes on glass
TLDR
Large panels of aligned carbon nanotubes can be made under conditions that are suitable for device fabrication under plasma-enhanced hot filament chemical vapor deposition. Expand
Correlation hole of the spin-polarized electron gas, with exact small-wave-vector and high-density scaling.

Carbon nanotube quantum resistors
TLDR
The conductance of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) was found to be quantized and Extremely high stable current densities, J > 10(7) amperes per square centimeter, have been attained. Expand
Induced coherence and indistinguishability in optical interference.
  • Zou, Wang, Mandel
  • Physics, Medicine
  • Physical review letters
  • 15 July 1991
TLDR
The interpretation of second-order interference in the superposition of signal photons from two coherently pumped parametric down-converters is discussed in terms of the intrinsic indistinguishability of the photon paths. Expand
