Negative Thermal Expansion in Single-Component Systems with Isotropic Interactions†


We have devised an isotropic interaction potential that gives rise to negative thermal expansion (NTE) behavior in equilibrium many-particle systems in both two and three dimensions over a wide temperature and pressure range (including zero pressure). An optimization procedure is used in order to find a potential that yields a strong NTE effect. A key… (More)
