New study reveals the real-time dynamical response of asymmetric tilt during epitaxial thin film growth
Scientists have observed the real-time strain relaxation response of asymmetric tilt boundaries at the Bi/GaAs (110) interface, which could improve the production of high-quality epitaxial thin films for modern electronic devices.
Defining causality not only by an arrow of time, but also by space, provides a new way to quantify information exchange between variables. The results offer improved modeling for a variety of data types.
Predictions show that methyl- and ethyl-functionalized honeycombs of thallium antimonide have large enough band gaps and the robustness needed for a topological insulator at room temperature.
A direct dynamics theoretical approach allowed researchers to distinguish between the Eley-Rideal and “hot atom” mechanisms for reactions between deuterium atoms and methyl groups adsorbed on copper surfaces.
