  1. Phase Transforming Cellular Materials (Spherical Shells)

    27 Aug 2018

    “Phase transforming cellular materials (PXCMs) are a class of materials whose unit cells exhibit multiple configurations (metastable or bistable) [1]. The geometrical structure of the PXCM can change to increase the energy absorbed. The hysteretic nature of the PXCM makes the potential...

  2. Ionization Potential of Small Molecules Using DFT

    27 Aug 2018 | Teaching Materials

    Use DFT simulations to explore the ionization potential (energy required to remove an electron) in atoms and small molecules. Disclaimer: While very powerful, DFT makes well known approximations and the results obtained in this module are approximate.
