Modern science and technologies and their rapid intensive development are in search for innovative efficient methods in a wide range of their applications. Laser and optical methods may offer a numbers of attractive features, such as being contactless, remote, non-destructive, real time and in situ applicable. LANIE laboratory...


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...

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...

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...

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...
