Particle and rain erosion mechanisms on Ti/TiN multilayer PVD coatings for carbon fibre reinforced polymer substrates protection

Particle and rain erosion mechanisms on Ti/TiN multilayer PVD coatings for carbon fibre reinforced polymer substrates protection

Author: Borja Coto, Per Hallander, Lucía Mendizabal, Francesco Pagano, Hans Kling, Rocío Ortiz, Javier Barriga, Linnéa Selegård

Wear. Volumes 466–467, 15 February 2021

Abstract:
PVD coatings have been studied as candidates for erosion protection of carbon fibre reinforced polymers. Thus, multilayer Ti/TiN coating stacks with different thicknesses ranging from 1.5 to 11 μm have been deposited by pulsed…

Vibrational Frequencies of Cerium-Oxide-Bound CO: A Challenge for Conventional DFT Methods

Vibrational Frequencies of Cerium-Oxide-Bound CO: A Challenge for Conventional DFT Methods

Author: Pablo G. Lustemberg, Philipp N. Plessow, Yuemin Wang, Chengwu Yang, Alexei Nefedov, Felix Studt, Christof Wöll, and M. Verónica Ganduglia-Pirovano

Phys. Rev. Lett. 125, 256101 – Published 17 December 2020

Abstract:
In ceria-based catalysis, the shape of the catalyst particle, which determines the exposed crystal facets, profoundly affects its reactivity. The vibrational frequency of adsorbed carbon monoxide (CO) can be used as a sensitive probe…

Gas-phase kinetics of CH3CHO with OH radicals between 11.7 and 177.5 K

Gas-phase kinetics of CH3CHO with OH radicals between 11.7 and 177.5 K

Author:

Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys.

Abstract:
Gas-phase reactions in the interstellar medium (ISM) are a source of molecules in this environment. The knowledge of the rate coefficient for neutral–neutral reactions as a function of temperature, k(T), is essential to improve….

Boron synergies in lithium film performance

Boron synergies in lithium film performance

Author: A. Devitre, E. OyarzabalI. Fernández-BercerueloD. Tafalla and F.L. Tabare

Nuclear Fusion

Abstract:
Fusion experiments use lithium and boron getters to capture impurities and control the density of fuel species in the plasma. In the TJ-II Stellarator, the addition of a boron-carbon substrate was found to extend the lifetime of the very reactive lithium wall conditioning….

Large Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction induced by chemisorbed oxygen on a ferromagnet surface

Large Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction induced by chemisorbed oxygen on a ferromagnet surface

Author: Gong Chen, Arantzazu Mascaraque, Hongying Jia, Bernd Zimmermann, MacCallum Robertson, Roberto Lo Conte, Markus Hoffmann, Miguel Angel González Barrio, Haifeng Ding, Roland Wiesendanger, Enrique G. Michel, Stefan Blügel, Andreas K. Schmid, Kai Liu

Science Advances 

Abstract:
The Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI) is an antisymmetric exchange interaction that stabilizes chiral spin textures. It is induced by inversion symmetry breaking in noncentrosymmetric lattices or at interfaces. Recently, interfacial DMI….

Unveiling the Neutral Forms of Glutamine

Unveiling the Neutral Forms of Glutamine

Author: Iker León, Elena R. Alonso, Santiago Mata, Carlos Cabezas, Prof. Jose Luis Alonso

Angewandte (2019)

Abstract:
Neutral glutamine has been evaporated by laser ablation of its solid sample to seed a rare gas carrier prior to a supersonic expansion and proved by Fourier transform microwave techniques. We report on three distinct neutral conformers that show a….
