Very recently, a novel Dirac half-metal has been investigated in the perovskite-type lanthanum manganite (LaMnO3) by Ma et al. [1] and the half metallicity with 100% spin polarization is discovered. More remarkably, multiple linear Dirac crossings are observed around the Fermi energy level in the spin-up direction. Inspired by this work, another perovskite-type material YbBO3, which has been synthesized before, is investigated by first principles calculation. Results confirm the presence of half metallicity in this material with also multiple Dirac-like linear and parabolic band crossings around the Fermi level. The estimated Curie temperature is 469.4 K and the mechanic and dynamic stabilities have been verified. Besides, the elastic anisotropy is revealed with the directional dependent Young's modulus and shear modulus, together with the acoustic wave properties. The effect of the uniform strain, electron doping and spin-orbital coupling on the electronic structures have been also accessed. In particular, nearly spin-gapless semiconducting behavior with linear or parabolic energy dispersions is obtained by electron doping. Moreover, several thermodynamic properties have been examined under temperature from 0 to 500 K and pressure from 0 to 5 GPa. In combination, we expect YbBO3 can attract more research attention and even facilitate the spintronic application.

In this study, two novel electrochromic copolymers (CoP1.3 and CoP1.5) were synthesized via electrochemical methods and characterized. The comonomers used in the synthesis were 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) and a carbazole comprising monomer; 9-(2-(4-(Phenyldiazenyl) phenoxy) ethyl)-3,6-di(thiophen-2-yl)-9H-carbazole (M1). Carbazole containing monomer (M1) and EDOT were combined with two different comonomer feed ratios, 1: 3 and 1: 5 respectively in order to investigate the effect of increasing EDOT amo...
Numerical and experimental determination of the residual stress state in multipass welded API 5LX70 plates
Garipova, Nuriya; Batıgün, Caner; Gür, Cemil Hakan (2014-01-01)
Residual stres s distributions in multipass welded API SL X70 steel plates were determined by numerical and experimental methods. SYSWELD finite element software was used for numerical simulations. Microstructure variations were also considered for calculation of residual stresses. The continuous cooling transformation diagram was obtained via JMatPro software. The results showed that residual stress distribution is sensitive to number of weld passes, and microstructure changes. The simulation results were ...

Surucu, Gokhan; Gencer, Ayşenur; Wang, Xiaotian; Surucu, Ozge (Elsevier BV, 2020-04-05)
The structural, electronic, dynamic, and thermo-elastic properties of M2AlB (X = V, Nb, Ta) MAX phase borides were investigated using first principle calculations as implemented in the Vienna Ab-initio Simulation Package (VASP) with the generalized gradient approximation (GGA). The obtained structural properties and formation energies showed the thermodynamic stability and synthesizability of M2AlB. The electronic band structures were determined and they revealed that these compounds had a metallic characte...

Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat; Mehrabov, Amdulla (Elsevier BV, 2019-06-05)
The effects of particle size (2-6 nm) and temperature (300-2700 K) on the stability and local structural evolutions of amorphous equiatomic FePt bulk/nanoalloys have been investigated by combining Embedded Atom Model (EAM) with classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulation method. The three dimensional (3D) atomic configuration of amorphous FePt NPs by means of Voronoi analysis reveals that, deformed bcc (d-bcc) and icosahedron (d-ico) type structures are most probable local atomic configurations for 2-6 nm ...

ÖZDEMİR, Orhan; Anutgan, Mustafa; Aliyeva-Anutgan, Tamila; Atilgan, Ismail; Katircioglu, Bayram (Elsevier BV, 2009-05-05)
Boron nitride (BN) thin film was grown by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) technique and was investigated by UV-Visible transmission, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and ac conductance spectroscopies. Mainly the density of electronic localized states (D-it) at BN/Si interface was obtained by continuum and statistical models of ac conductance through an MIS structure (Al/BN film/Si). The origins of the electronic defects have been outlined and discussed within the frame of a nitrogen defic...
