Electron-hole recombination mechanism in halide perovskites

A research team led by Prof. Zhao Jin from Department of Physics, University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found low-frequency lattice phonons in halide perovskites resulting ...

Theory reveals the nature of silicon carbide crystals defects

Imperfections of crystal structure, especially edge dislocations of an elongated nature, deeply modify basic properties of the entire material and, in consequence, drastically limit its applications. Using silicon carbide ...

Can we model heavy nuclei from first principles? 

Modelling the properties of atomic nuclei is a demanding task. It requires a theory that we can apply to a large variety of nuclear species regardless of their masses. M.Sc. Gianluca Salvioni's doctoral dissertation on theoretical ...

Researchers compute their way to the center of the Earth

In order to more fully comprehend the complexities of Earth's interior, humanity has to dig deep—literally. To date, scientists have been able to bore a little over 12 kilometres deep, or about half the average depth of ...
