A journey from order to disorder - atom by atom transformation from graphene to a 2D carbon glass.

One of the most interesting questions in solid state theory is the structure of glass, which has eluded researchers since the early 1900's. Since then...

Atom-by-atom assembly.
Atomic manipulation using a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) tip enables the construction of quantum structures on an atom-by-atom basis, as well as the investigation of the electronic and dynamical properties of individual atoms on a one-atom-at-

Hydrogen abstraction from the hydrazine molecule by an oxygen atom.
Thermochemical and kinetics properties of the hydrogen abstraction from the hydrazine molecule (N2H4) by an oxygen atom were computed using high-level ab initio methods and the M06-2X DFT functional with aug-cc-pVXZ (X = T, Q) and maug-cc-pVTZ basis

Raman spectroscopy as a tool to investigate the structure and electronic properties of carbon-atom wires.
Graphene, nanotubes and other carbon nanostructures have shown potential as candidates for advanced technological applications due to the different coordination of carbon atoms and to the possibility of π-conjugation. In this context, atomic-scale wi

SkfB Abstracts a Hydrogen Atom from Cα on SkfA To Initiate Thioether Cross-Link Formation.
Sulfur to α-carbon thioether-containing peptides (sactipeptides) are ribosomally synthesized post-translationally modified peptides with bacteriocidal activities. The thioether cross-link, which is required for biological activity, is installed by a

A filtering method to reveal crystalline patterns from atom probe microscopy desorption maps.
A filtering method to reveal the crystallographic information present in Atom Probe Microscopy (APM) data is presented. The method filters atoms based on the time difference between their evaporation and the evaporation of the previous atom. Since th

Short-channel field-effect transistors with 9-atom and 13-atom wide graphene nanoribbons.
Bottom-up synthesized graphene nanoribbons and graphene nanoribbon heterostructures have promising electronic properties for high-performance field-effect transistors and ultra-low power devices such as tunneling field-effect transistors. However, th

Carbon-catalysed reductive hydrogen atom transfer reactions.
Generally, transition metal catalysts are essential for the reductive hydrogen atom transfer reaction, which is also known as the transfer hydrogenation reaction or the borrowing-hydrogen reaction. It has been reported that graphene can be an active

Single atom catalysts on amorphous supports: A quenched disorder perspective.
Phenomenological models that invoke catalyst sites with different adsorption constants and rate constants are well-established, but computational and experimental methods are just beginning to provide atomically resolved details about amorphous surfa

PCTFE as a solution to birefringence in atom trap viewports.
We have developed and characterized optical viewports with the glass-to-metal seal made by the plastic PCTFE (polychlorotrifluoroethylene). The goal is to reduce stress-induced birefringence while maintaining ultra-high vacuum compatibility. We have
