    Montalà Sales, Ricard; Lehmkuhl Barba, Oriol; Rodríguez Pérez, Ivette María (2024-02-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    A comprehensive analysis of the unsteady flow dynamics past the 30P30N three-element high lift wing is performed by means of large eddy simulations at different angles of attack (AoA=5°, 9°, and 23°) and at a Reynolds ...
  • Permutation entropy-based characterization of speckle patterns generated by semiconductor laser light 

    Tirabassi, Giulio; Duque Gijón, María; Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Masoller Alonso, Cristina (2023-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Semiconductor lasers with optical feedback are stochastic nonlinear systems that can display complex dynamics and abrupt changes when their operation conditions change. Even very small changes can lead to large variations ...
  • Henry's constant of helium in liquid alkali metals 

    Álvarez Galera, Edgar; Laria, Daniel; Batet Miracle, Lluís; Martí Rabassa, Jordi (2024-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    The determination of the solubility of helium in liquid lithium and in lead-lithium eutectic systems is of crucial importance for the assessment of the reliability, safety and efficiency of future nuclear reactor plants ...
  • In silico design of a lipid-like compound targeting KRAS4B-G12D through non-covalent bonds 

    Lu, Huixia; Hu, Zheyao; Faraudo, Jordi; Martí Rabassa, Jordi (2023-11-21)
    Article
    Open Access
    One of the most common drivers in human cancer is the peripheral membrane protein KRAS4B, able to promote oncogenic signalling. To signal, oncogenic KRAS4B not only requires a sufficient nucleotide exchange, but also needs ...
  • Lyapunov exponents and extensivity of strongly coupled chaotic maps in regular graphs 

    Gancio Vázquez, Juan; Rubido, Nicolas (Elsevier, 2024-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    n Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics, a system’s property is extensive when it grows with the system size. When it happens, the system can be decomposed into separate components, which has been done in many systems ...
  • Phase separation in binary Bose mixtures at finite temperature 

    Spada, Gabriele; Parisi, L.; Pascual López, Gerard; Parker, Nicholas G.; Billam, Thomas P.; Pilati, Sebastiano; Boronat Medico, Jordi; Giorgini, Stefano (2023-10-18)
    Article
    Open Access
    We investigate the magnetic behavior of finite-temperature repulsive two-component Bose mixtures by means of exact path-integral Monte-Carlo simulations. Novel algorithms are implemented for the free energy and the chemical ...
  • Barocaloric response of plastic crystal 2-methyl-2-nitro-1-propanol across and far from the solid-solid phase transition 

    Salvatori, Alejandro; Barrio Casado, María del; Negrier, Philippe; Massip, Stephane; Romanini, Michela; Aznar Luque, Araceli; Lloveras Muntané, Pol Marcel; Tamarit Mur, José Luis (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2023-10-25)
    Article
    Open Access
    Plastic crystals have emerged as benchmark barocaloric (BC) materials for potential solid-state cooling and heating applications due to huge isothermal entropy changes and adiabatic temperature changes driven by pressure. ...
  • Constructions of b-semitoric systems 

    Brugués Mora, Joaquim; Hohloch, Sonja; Mir Garcia, Pau; Miranda Galcerán, Eva (2023-07-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this article, we introduce b-semitoric systems as a generalization of semitoric systems, specifically tailored for b-symplectic manifolds. The objective of this article is to furnish a collection of examples and investigate ...
  • Timing jitter reduction in semiconductor lasers induced by optical injection 

    Duque Gijón, María; Quirce Teja, Ana; Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Masoller Alonso, Cristina; Valle Gutierrez, Ángel (2023-11-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We present an experimental study of the effect of continuous-wave optical injection (OI) from a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) on the timing jitter of a gain-switched discrete-mode semiconductor laser (DML). ...
  • Particle size effect on the microstructure and the aging process of flash-sintered barium titanate from micro and nanopowders 

    López Blanco, Samuel; Vendrell Vilafruella, Xavier; Mestres Vila, Lourdes; Ochoa Guerrero, Diego A.; García García, José Eduardo (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2023-08-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    Flash sintering is a novel sintering technique that allows high-density ceramics to be obtained at low temperatures and using short dwell times, thus providing an energy-efficient alternative to conventional sintering. The ...
