Amorphous zirconia at high pressure
(WILEY, 111 RIVER ST, HOBOKEN 07030-5774, NJ USA, 2018)
We show, by means of ab initio calculations, that amorphous zirconia progressively transforms to a high-density amorphous phase with the application of pressure. The average coordination number of Zr and O atoms under ...
MgCu metallic glass
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2-4 PARK SQUARE, MILTON PARK, ABINGDON OR14 4RN, OXON, ENGLAND, 2018)
We generate an amorphous MgCu model using the rapid solidification of the melt through a first-principles molecular dynamics approach within a generalised gradient approximation and reveal, for the first time, its structural ...
Two successive amorphous-to-amorphous phase transformations in TiO2
(WILEY111 RIVER ST, HOBOKEN 07030-5774, NJ, 2017)
Based on constant pressure ab initio simulations, we propose, for the first time, two successive amorphous-to-amorphous phase transformations for TiO2. The first one is a gradual phase transformation from a low-density ...
Amorphous boron nitride at high pressure
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD2-4 PARK SQUARE, MILTON PARK, ABINGDON OR14 4RN, OXON, ENGLAND, 2016)
The pressure-induced phase transformation in hexagonal boron nitrite and amorphous boron nitrite is studied using ab initio molecular dynamics simulations. The hexagonal-to-wurtzite phase transformation is successfully ...
