Lecture Notes on the Statistical Mechanics of Disordered Systems
This material complements David Chandler's Introduction to Modern Statistical Mechanics (Oxford University Press, 1987) in a graduate-level, one-semester course I teach in the Department of Chemistry at Duke University. ...
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 ...
Numerical detection of the Gardner transition in a mean-field glass former.
(Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys, 2015-07)
Recent theoretical advances predict the existence, deep into the glass phase, of a novel phase transition, the so-called Gardner transition. This transition is associated with the emergence of a complex free energy landscape ...
Kinetic Monte Carlo simulations for birefringence relaxation of photo-switchable molecules on a surface.
(J Chem Phys, 2016-03-14)
Recent experiments have demonstrated that in a dense monolayer of photo-switchable dye methyl-red molecules the relaxation of an initial birefringence follows a power-law decay, typical for glass-like dynamics. The slow ...
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 ...
Exact theory of dense amorphous hard spheres in high dimension. III. the full replica symmetry breaking solution
(Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment, 2014-10-01)
© 2014 IOP Publishing Ltd. In the first part of this paper, we derive the general replica equations that describe infinite-dimensional hard spheres at any level of replica symmetry breaking (RSB) and in particular in the ...
Dimensional dependence of the Stokes-Einstein relation and its violation
(Journal of Chemical Physics, 2013-10-28)
We generalize to higher spatial dimensions the Stokes-Einstein relation (SER) as well as the leading correction to diffusivity in finite systems with periodic boundary conditions, and validate these results with numerical ...
Universal Non-Debye Scaling in the Density of States of Amorphous Solids.
(Phys Rev Lett, 2016-07-22)
At the jamming transition, amorphous packings are known to display anomalous vibrational modes with a density of states (DOS) that remains constant at low frequency. The scaling of the DOS at higher packing fractions remains, ...
