NOMATEN HYBRID-SEMINAR, NOVEMBER 2nd, Alpha-decay damage in natural apatite: buildup and recovery mechanisms for thermochronological applications

27 October 2023

Thermochronology is an earth science discipline involved in the reconstruction and timing of past geological processes. In this field, rock accessory minerals such as apatite are collected and their thermal histories (temperature vs. time) reconstructed to study landscape evolution and mountain-building processes. One of the low-temperature techniques...

NOMATEN HYBRID-SEMINAR, SEPTEMBER 26th, About the formation of vacancy clusters in fcc metals: an atomistic approach

18 September 2023

Vacancy clusters have a major contribution in multiple mechanisms as oxidation, precipitation and creep and can lead to material premature cracking. It is thus essential to have a deep understanding of the stability of these defects under a wide range of stress and temperature. Multiple factors...

NOMATEN HYBRID-SEMINAR June 13: Density functional simulations of threshold switching in non-volatile memory materials

09 June 2023

We have performed density functional/molecular dynamics (DF/MD) simulations to investigate the drift of Ag atoms in an amorphous GeS2 solid-state electrolyte between Ag and Pt electrodes in the presence of a finite electric field [1]. The atomistic model structure represents a conductive bridging random access memory (CBRAM) device, where the electric field...

NOMATEN HYBRID-SEMINAR June 7: Twistronics: a new platform for exploring physics and applications in 2D

25 May 2023

When layers of two-dimensional (2D) materials are stacked on top of each with a relative twist, the resulting reconstruction pattern ("moiré pattern") dominates the electronic behavior. Depending on the twist angle, the moiré scale can be several orders of magnitude larger than the scale of the underlying atomic lattices, and the lead to emergent behavior, including superconductivity. This field of physics in 2D materials...
