  • Multiscale modelling for fusion and fission materials: the M4F project 

    Malerba, L.; Caturla, Maria José; Gaganidze, Emile; Anento Moreno, Napoleón; Kvashin, Nikolai; Serra Tort, Ana María (Elsevier, 2021-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    The M4F project brings together the fusion and fission materials communities working on the prediction of radiation damage production and evolution and their effects on the mechanical behaviour of irradiated ferritic/martensitic ...
  • A stochastic hybrid model with a fast concentration bias for chemotactic cellular attraction 

    Ojer Ferrer, Jaume; García López, Alvaro; Used, Javier; Fernández Sanjuan, Miguel Angel (2022-03)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We reproduce the phenomenon of chemotaxis through a hybrid random walk model in two dimensions on a lattice. The dynamics of the chemoattractant is modelled using a partial differential equation, which reproduces its ...
  • Jun ware glaze colours: An X-ray absorption spectroscopy study 

    Yuan, Mingyue; Hou, Jiayu; Gorni, Giulio; Crespo Artiaga, Daniel; Li, Yuan; Pradell Cara, Trinitat (Elsevier, 2022-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Jun ware is stoneware created in the late Northern Song dynasty (12th century) with a blue glaze combining transparent-blue and whitish-opaque submillimetric areas. The glaze has a glass nanostructure with lime-rich droplets ...
  • PbS-Pb-Cu xS Composites for Thermoelectric Application 

    Li, Mengyao; Liu, Yu; Zhang, Yu; Han, Xu; Xiao, Ke; Nabahat, Mehran; Arbiol, Jordi; Llorca Piqué, Jordi; Alzate Ibáñez, Angélica María; Cabot, Andreu (2021-10-19)
    Article

    Composite materials offer numerous advantages in a wide range of applications, including thermoelectrics. Here, semiconductor-metal composites are produced by just blending nanoparticles of a sulfide semiconductor obtained ...
  • Effect of physical aging and cyclic loading on power-law creep of high-entropy metallic glass 

    Zhang, LangTing; Duan, Yajuan; Pineda Soler, Eloi; Kato, Hidemi; Pelletier, J. M.; Qiao, Jichao (2022-07-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The power-law relationship between creep rate decay and time is one of the intrinsic characteristics of metallic glasses. In the current work, a La30Ce30Ni10Al20Co10 high-entropy metallic glass was selected as the model ...
  • From single to collective motion of social amoebae: a computational study of interacting cells 

    Moreno Ramos, Eduardo; Großmann, Robert; Beta, Carsten; Alonso Muñoz, Sergio (Frontiers Media SA, 2022-02-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    The coupling of the internal mechanisms of cell polarization to cell shape deformations and subsequent cell crawling poses many interdisciplinary scientific challenges. Several mathematical approaches have been proposed ...
  • Quasiparticle Nature of the Bose Polaron at Finite Temperature 

    Pascual López, Gerard; Boronat Medico, Jordi (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2021-11-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    The Bose polaron has attracted theoretical and experimental interest because the mobile impurity is surrounded by a bath that undergoes a superfluid-to-normal phase transition. Although many theoretical works have studied ...
  • Machine learning prediction of the Madden-Julian oscillation 

    Silini, Riccardo; Barreiro Parrillo, Marcelo; Masoller Alonso, Cristina (Springer Nature, 2021-11-25)
    Article
    Open Access
    The socioeconomic impact of weather extremes draws the attention of researchers to the development of novel methodologies to make more accurate weather predictions. The Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO) is the dominant mode ...
  • Low-Temperature Heat Capacity Anomalies in Ordered and Disordered Phases of Normal and Deuterated Thiophene 

    Miyazaki, Yuji; NAKANO, Motohiro; Krivchikov, Alexander; Gebbia, Jonathan Fernando; Cazorla Silva, Claudio; Tamarit Mur, José Luis (2021-03-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    We measured the specific heat Cp of normal (C4H4S) and deuterated (C4D4S) thiophene in the temperature interval of 1 = T, K = 25. C4H4S exhibits a metastable phase II2 and a stable phase V, both with frozen orientational ...
  • Structure, mechanical properties and nanocrystallization of (FeCoCrNi)-(B,Si) high-entropy metallic glasses 

    Panahi, Seyedeh Leila; Fornell, Jordina; Popescu, Catalin; Pineda Soler, Eloi; Sort Viñas, Jordi; Bruna Escuer, Pere (2022-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    New high-entropy metallic glasses were produced by adding B and Si to the Fe25Co25Cr25Ni25 high entropy alloy. Extremely hard materials were obtained by inducing structural relaxation and nanocrystallization in the ...
  • Symptom-based predictive model of COVID-19 disease in children 

    Antoñanzas, Jesús M.; Perramon Malavez, Aida; López, Cayetana; Boneta, Mireia; Aguilera, Cristina; Capdevila, Ramon; Gatell, Anna; Serrano, Pepe; Poblet, Miriam; Canadell, Dolors; Vilà, Mònica; Catasús, Georgina; Valldepérez, Cinta; Català, Martí; Soler-Palacín, Pere; Prats Soler, Clara; Soriano-Arandes, Antoni (2021-12-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    Testing for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection is neither always accessible nor easy to perform in children. We aimed to propose a machine learning model to assess the need for a SARS-CoV-2 ...
  • {111} tilt grain boundaries as barriers for slip transfer in bcc Fe 

    Kvashin, Nikolai; Anento Moreno, Napoleón; Terentyev, Dimitry; Serra Tort, Ana María (2022-02)
    Article
