Bi$_2$Se$_3$ is a topological insulator and it is often doped with Te to compensate the $n$-type carriers due to Se vacancies. Different doping patterns of Te would influence the transport characteristics of the surface states. We study the Te atom distribution in Bi$_2$Se$_3$ with different Te concentrations, using first-principles density-functional-theory calculations. Read More

Electronic structure of single crystalline Ba(Zn$_{0.875}$Mn$_{0.125}$)$_{2}$As$_{2}$, parent compound of the recently founded high-temperature ferromagnetic semiconductor, was studied by high-resolution photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES). Read More

Kernelization is a significant topic in parameterized complexity. Turing kernelization is a general form of kernelization. In the aspect of kernelization, an impressive hardness theory has been established [Bodlaender etc. Read More

The elemental two-dimensional (2D) materials such as graphene, silicene, germanene, and black phosphorus have attracted considerable attention due to their fascinating physical properties. Structurally they possess the honeycomb or distorted honeycomb lattices, which are composed of six-atom rings. Here we find a new structure of 2D allotropes of group V elements composed of eight-atom rings, which we name as the octagonal tiling (OT) structure. Read More

Topological insulators are new states of matter with a bulk gap and robust gapless surface states protected by time-reversal symmetry. When time-reversal symmetry is broken, the surface states are gapped, which induces a topological response of the system to electromagnetic field--the topological magnetoelectric effect. In this paper we study the behavior of topological surface states in heterostructures formed by a topological insulator and a magnetic insulator. Read More

The interfacial screening charge that arises to compensate electric fields of dielectric or ferroelectric thin films is now recognized as the most important factor in determining the capacitance or polarization of ultrathin ferroelectrics. Here we investigate using aberration-corrected electron microscopy and density functional theory how interfaces cope with the need to terminate ferroelectric polarization. In one case, we show evidence for ionic screening, which has been predicted by theory but never observed. Read More

The structure of thiolate-protected gold cluster Au38(SR)24 has not been determined experimentally and the best available signature is its measured optical spectrum. Using this signature and energetic stability as criteria and SCH3 for SR, we compare four candidate structures: two from others and two we obtained. Our models are distinct from others in that thiolate groups form monomers and dimers of the staple motif (a nearly linear RS-Au-SR bonding unit). Read More

Besides altruistic punishment and group selection, we argue that, mercy can lead to altruistic cooperation. Modeling the micro economic behavior of the mercy, with two alleles of genes (Cooperation or Defection & Mercy or No mercy) agents in a network, we present the computational simulation results in the spatiotemporal evolution game theory frame to prove the above argument. Here, mercy (or as 'Love thy neighbors') means, the agents, with mercy preference, might share his own fitness with his poorest neighbor who poorer than himself. Read More

Doping evolution of the Fermi surface topology of Na$_x$CoO$_2$ is studied systematically. Both local density approximation (LDA) and local spin density approximation (LSDA) predict a large Fermi surface as well as small hole pockets for doping levels $x\sim$ 0.5. Read More

A systematic LSDA+U study of doping effects on the electronic and structural properties of single layer CoO2 is presented. Undoped CoO2 is a charge transfer insulator within LSDA+U and a metal with a high density of states (DOS) at the Fermi level within LSDA. (CoO2)$^{1. Read More
