Monte Carlo Study of the Axial Next-Nearest-Neighbor Ising Model
(PHYSICAL REVIEW LETTERS, 2010-05-14)
[N]pT Monte Carlo simulations of the cluster-crystal-forming penetrable sphere model.
(J Chem Phys, 2012-06-07)
Certain models with purely repulsive pair interactions can form cluster crystals with multiply-occupied lattice sites. Simulating these models' equilibrium properties is, however, quite challenging. Here, we develop an expanded ...
Numerical and theoretical study of a monodisperse hard-sphere glass former.
(Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys, 2010-04)
There exists a variety of theories of the glass transition and many more numerical models. But because the models need built-in complexity to prevent crystallization, comparisons with theory can be difficult. We study the ...
Efficient measurement of point-to-set correlations and overlap fluctuations in glass-forming liquids.
(J Chem Phys, 2016-01-14)
Cavity point-to-set correlations are real-space tools to detect the roughening of the free-energy landscape that accompanies the dynamical slowdown of glass-forming liquids. Measuring these correlations in model glass formers ...
Competition between monomeric and dimeric crystals in schematic models for globular proteins.
(J Phys Chem B, 2014-07-17)
Advances in experimental techniques and in theoretical models have improved our understanding of protein crystallization. However, they have also left open questions regarding the protein phase behavior and self-assembly ...
Soft matter perspective on protein crystal assembly.
(Colloids Surf B Biointerfaces, 2016-01-01)
Crystallography may be the gold standard of protein structure determination, but obtaining the necessary high-quality crystals is also in some ways akin to prospecting for the precious metal. The tools and models developed ...
Characterizing protein crystal contacts and their role in crystallization: rubredoxin as a case study.
(Soft Matter, 2014-01-14)
The fields of structural biology and soft matter have independently sought out fundamental principles to rationalize protein crystallization. Yet the conceptual differences and the limited overlap between the two disciplines ...
The effect of nanowire length and diameter on the properties of transparent, conducting nanowire films.
This article describes how the dimensions of nanowires affect the transmittance and sheet resistance of a random nanowire network. Silver nanowires with independently controlled lengths and diameters were synthesized with ...
Phase transformations in binary colloidal monolayers.
(Soft Matter, 2015-03-28)
Phase transformations can be difficult to characterize at the microscopic level due to the inability to directly observe individual atomic motions. Model colloidal systems, by contrast, permit the direct observation of individual ...
Jamming criticality revealed by removing localized buckling excitations.
(Phys Rev Lett, 2015-03-27)
Recent theoretical advances offer an exact, first-principles theory of jamming criticality in infinite dimension as well as universal scaling relations between critical exponents in all dimensions. For packings of frictionless ...
