Computing optical properties of ultra-thin crystals
An overview is given of recent advances in experimental and theoretical understanding of optical properties of ultra-thin crystal structures (graphene, phosphorene, silicene, MoS2 , MoSe2 , WS2 , WSe2 , h-AlN, h-BN, ...
Structural changes in a Schiff base molecular assembly initiated by scanning tunneling microscopy tip
(IOP Publishing, 2016-07)
We report the controlled self-organization and switching of newly designed Schiff base (E)-4-((4-(phenylethynyl) benzylidene) amino) benzenethiol (EPBB) molecules on a Au (111) surface at room temperature. Scanning tunneling ...
Nanoribbons: From fundamentals to state-of-the-art applications
(American Institute of Physics Publishing, 2016-12)
Atomically thin nanoribbons (NRs) have been at the forefront of materials science and nanoelectronics in recent years. State-of-the-art research on nanoscale materials has revealed that electronic, magnetic, phononic, and ...
Mg(OH)2-WS2 van der Waals heterobilayer: Electric field tunable band-gap crossover
(American Physical Society, 2016)
Magnesium hydroxide [Mg(OH)2] has a layered brucitelike structure in its bulk form and was recently isolated as a new member of two-dimensional monolayer materials. We investigated the electronic and optical properties of ...
Mechanical properties of monolayer GaS and GaSe crystals
(American Physical Society, 2016-12)
The mechanical properties of monolayer GaS and GaSe crystals are investigated in terms of their elastic constants: in-plane stiffness (C), Poisson ratio (ν), and ultimate strength (σU) by means of first-principles calculations. ...
Quantum-Transport Characteristics of a p–n Junction on Single-Layer TiS3
By using density functional theory and non-equilibrium Green′s function-based methods, we investigated the electronic and transport properties of a TiS3 monolayer p–n junction. We constructed a lateral p–n junction on a ...
