OHIO Team Shows Existence of Three-Dimensional Phases of Amorphous Graphene

This image represents an 800-atom FEAR model of amorphous carbon at density 0.95 gm/cc. Spheres represent carbon atoms. Orange atoms are members of amorphous graphene subnetwork.

By Amanda Biederman NQPI editorial intern A team of Ohio University researchers and their collaborators used a theoretical model to characterize the physical properties of certain samples of amorphous carbon and showed that these materials are, in fact, connected and distorted fragments of amorphous graphene in an article published in […]

Physicists Propose New Model to Study Pairing Properties of Nuclei

(L to R) Dr. Madappa Prakash, Md. Abdullah Al Mamun, and Dr. Constantinos Constantinou

A team of Ohio University nuclear physicists has proposed a new theoretical model for calculating pairing properties of atomic nuclei including those found in extreme astrophysical environments. As in some solids in which two interacting electrons pair up to act as one object that leads to superconductivity, interacting neutrons (or […]
