    Atmospheric annealing could melt the nanorods with diameters of ∼10 nm at ∼600 °C, and completely change them into jointed grains at 610 °C. Most of the jointed grains are quasibicrystals with nearly symmetric morphologies but twinning free structures, much different from the...

    During magma ascent in the volcanic conduit, the decompression of a silicic melt may result in the crystallization of morphologically and compositionally specific crystals, designated microlites. Hence, microlites have been considered as probes of mechanisms and time scales of magma ascent. Some...

    Multiscale simulations using the quasicontinuum (QC) method with the embedded-atom method (EAM) potential are performed to investigate the process of nanocontact including sliding and subsequent withdrawal between Ni tip and Au substrate. The multiscale model reveals that deformation twinning in...

    Diamond is a unique material that often exhibits extreme properties compared to other materials. Discovered about 30 years ago, the use of hydrogen in plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (CVD) has enabled the growth and coating of diamond in film form on various substrate materials. CVD...

    Twinning of bismuth crystals under a concentrated load is found to be partly suppressed by a constant magnetic field. The main mechanisms of the influence of a constant homogeneous magnetic field on the twinning of bismuth single crystals subjected to long-term concentrated loading is studied....

    The solid-phase epitaxial growth of amorphized GaAs has been characterized with a variety of techniques to investigate the influence of microscopic nonstoichiometry on the onset of twinning and subsequent interfacial nonplanarity. Nonstoichiometry on a local, microscopic scale (or equivalently,...
