Real-Space Mapping of Oxygen Coordination in Phase-Separated Aluminosilicate Glass: Implication for Glass Stability
Understanding atomic arrangement in network glass is crucial to develop new glassy materials for future applications in medicine, optics, and electronics. While nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and...
Interface diffusion-induced phonon localization in two-dimensional lateral heterostructures
Abstract We report that the interface composition diffusion, which often occurs in the synthesis of two-dimensional lateral heterostructures, can significantly suppress the thermal transportExpand
A new planar BCN lateral heterostructure with outstanding strength and defect-mediated superior semiconducting to metallic properties.
It is argued that the defect mediated design of BCN heterostructures can provide new opportunities for plausible applications including energy conversion and storage, and high speed optical and electronic devices due to their semiconducting-metallic functionality and superior mechanical properties.

First-Principles Lattice Dynamics Method for Strongly Anharmonic Crystals
We review our recent development of a first-principles lattice dynamics method that can treat anharmonic effects nonperturbatively. The method is based on the self-consistent phonon theory, and tem...
Dynamics and Spin-Valley Locking Effects in Monolayer Transition Metal Dichalcogenides.
In this work, it is found that spin-orbit coupling increases carrier lifetimes at the valence band edge by an order of magnitude due to spin-valley locking, with a proportional increase in the hole mobility at room temperature. Expand
Strain distributions and their influence on electronic structures of WSe2–MoS2 laterally strained heterojunctions
Mapping a moiré pattern in a lateral lattice-mismatched WSe2–MoS2 heterojunction enables determination of the full strain tensor and the study of strain-induced electronic properties. Expand
Impact of rattlers on thermal conductivity of a thermoelectric clathrate: a first-principles study.
Comparing phonon properties of filled and empty clathrates, it is shown that rattlers cause tenfold reductions in the relaxation time of phonons by increasing the phonon-phonon scattering probability. Expand

Abstract Phonon plays essential roles in dynamical behaviors and thermal properties, which are central topics in fundamental issues of materials science. The importance of first principles phononExpand
Maximized electron interactions at the magic angle in twisted bilayer graphene
Scanning tunnelling spectroscopy is used to map the atomic-scale electronic structure of magic-angle twisted bilayer graphene, finding multiple signatures of electron correlations and thus providing insight into the sought-after mechanism behind superconductivity in graphene. Expand
