Atomistic modeling of the ABL kinase regulation by allosteric modulators using structural perturbation analysis and community-based network reconstruction of allosteric communications.

J Chem Theory Comput 2019 Apr 24. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

In this work, we have examined the molecular mechanisms of allosteric regulation of the ABL tyrosine kinase at the atomic level. Atomistic modeling of the ABL complexes with a panel of allosteric modulators has been performed using a combination of molecular dynamics simulations, structural residue perturbation scanning and a novel community analysis of the residue interaction networks. Our results have indicated that allosteric inhibitors and activators may exert a differential control on allosteric signaling between the kinase binding sites and functional regions. Read More

Probing Size and Substrate Effects on the Hydrogen Evolution Reaction by Single Isolated Pt Atoms, Atomic Clusters, and Nanoparticles.

J Am Chem Soc 2019 Apr 24. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Center for Electrochemistry, Department of Chemistry , The University of Texas at Austin , Austin , Texas 78712 , United States.

We report the catalytic activity of a single, isolated Pt deposit on Bi and Pb supports to probe the size and substrate effects on the electrochemical hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). Deposits were made electrolytically by an atom-by-atom method in a controlled plating; we prepared an individual Pt deposit on Bi and Pb ultramicroelectrodes (UMEs) such as a single isolated atom, clusters containing one to five Pt atoms, and nanoparticles to about 10 nm radius. A steady-state voltammogram on the single Pt deposits is observed by electrocatalytic amplification of the HER, with a negligible contribution by the HER at the substrate UME. Read More

Valence Engineering via Selective Atomic Substitution on Tetrahedral Sites in Spinel Oxide for Highly Enhanced Oxygen Evolution Catalysis.

J Am Chem Soc 2019 Apr 22. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

A major challenge which prohibits the practical application of single/double-transition metal (3d-M) oxides as oxygen evolution reaction (OER) catalysts is the high overpotentials during the electrochemical process. Herein, our theoretical calculation shows that Fe will be more energetically favorable in the tetrahedral site than Ni and Co, which can further regulate their electronic structure of binary NiCo spinel oxides for optimal adsorption energies of OER intermediates and improved electronic conductivity, and hence boost their OER performance. X-ray absorption spectroscopy study on the as-synthesized NiCoFe oxide catalysts indicates that Fe preferentially dopes into tetrahedral sites of the lattice, which induces high proportions of Ni and Co on the octahedral sites (the active sites in OER).

Nanoscale 2019 Apr 24. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Department of Materials Science and Engineering and Canadian Centre for Electron Microscopy, McMaster University, Main Street West, Hamilton, Ontario L8S 4M1, Canada.

Ternary III-nitride-based nanowires with highly efficient light-emitting properties are essential for a broad range of applications. By using the selective area molecular-beam epitaxy method, InGaN/AlGaN quantum disks (QDs) embedded in hexagonal GaN nanowires were successfully grown. With the help of atomic-scale-resolved transmission electron microscopy and atom probe tomography, atomic ordering and other related structural information, such as crystallography and local chemistry, have been unambiguously revealed to provide unique insights into the exceptionally strong photoluminescence enhancements.

Nanoscale 2019 Apr 24. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL 60607, USA.

This paper reports on plastic recovery and self-healing behavior in longitudinally-twinned and [112] orientated SiGe nanowire (NW) beams when they are subjected to large bending strains. The NW alloys are comprised of lamellar nanotwin platelet(s) sandwiched between two semi-cylindrical twins. The loading curves, which are acquired from atomic force microscope (AFM) based three-point bending tests, reveal the onset of plastic deformation at a characteristic stress threshold, followed by further straining of the NWs.

Self-ordering of chemisorbed PTCDA molecules on Ge(001) driven by repulsive forces.

Phys Chem Chem Phys 2019 Apr 24. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Department of Electronics Engineering and Computer Science, Fukuoka University, Fukuoka 814-0180, Japan.

Realization of future hybrid electronic devices combining organic and inorganic semiconductors requires a well-defined interface between both components. Such an interface can be formed generally by self-ordering of organic molecules on inorganic substrates, which is usually hindered by strong covalent bonds to the semiconductor surface. In this paper, the 3,4,9,10-perylenetetracarboxylic dianhydride (PTCDA) molecules were unexpectedly found to form a locally self-ordered monolayer on a strongly interacting semiconductor surface of the Ge(001).

Acquisition of time-frequency localized mechanical properties of biofilms and single cells with high spatial resolution.

Nanoscale 2019 Apr 24. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, The George Washington University, Washington, DC 20052, USA.

Biofilms are a cluster of bacteria embedded in extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) that contain a complex composition of polysaccharides, proteins, and extracellular DNA (eDNA). Desirable mechanical properties of the biofilms are critical for their survival, propagation, and dispersal, and the response of mechanical properties to different treatment conditions also sheds light on biofilm control and eradication in vivo and on engineering surfaces. However, it is challenging yet important to investigate mechanical behaviors of biofilms with a high spatial resolution because biofilms are very heterogeneous. Read More

Activation of Water by Thorium Cation: A Guided Ion Beam and Quantum Chemical Study.

J Am Soc Mass Spectrom 2019 Apr 16. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Department of Chemistry, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, 84112-0850, USA.

The reaction of atomic thorium cations with deuterated water as a function of kinetic energy from thermal to 10 eV was studied using guided ion beam tandem mass spectrometry. At thermal energies, both ThO + D and DThO + D are formed in barrierless exothermic processes and reproduce results in the literature obtained using ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry. As the energy is increased, the branching ratio between these two channels changes such that the dominant product changes from ThO to DThO and back to ThO, until ThD + OD is energetically available and is the dominant product channel.

Instituto de Ciencia Molecular , Universitat de València , Catedrático José Beltrán 2 , 46980 Paterna , Spain . Email: ; Email: ; Email:

Mastering the nanostructuration of molecular materials onto solid surfaces and understanding how this process affects their properties are of utmost importance for their integration into solid-state electronic devices. This is even more important for spin crossover (SCO) systems, in which the spin transition is extremely sensitive to size reduction effects. These bi-stable materials have great potential for the development of nanotechnological applications provided their intrinsic properties can be successfully implemented in nanometric films, amenable to the fabrication of functional nanodevices.

Biophysics and Department of Chemistry , University of Michigan , Ann Arbor , MI 48109-1055 , USA . Email:

In humans, β-amyloid and islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP, also known as amylin) aggregations are linked to Alzheimer's disease and type-2 diabetes, respectively. There is significant interest in better understanding the aggregation process by using chemical tools. Here, we show the ability of a cationic polymethacrylate-copolymer (PMAQA) to quickly induce a β-hairpin structure and accelerate the formation of amorphous aggregates of β-amyloid-1-40, whereas it constrains the conformational plasticity of amylin for several days and slows down its aggregation at substoichiometric polymer concentrations.

Achieving and exceeding diversity of colloidal analogs of chemical elements and molecules as building blocks of matter has been the central goal and challenge of colloidal science ever since Einstein introduced the colloidal atom paradigm. Recent advances in colloids assembly have been achieved by exploiting the machinery of DNA hybridization but robust physical means of defining colloidal elements remain limited. Here we introduce physical design principles allowing us to define high-order elastic multipoles emerging when colloids with controlled shapes and surface alignment are introduced into a nematic host fluid.

Vibrational Properties of Pd Nanocubes.

Nanomaterials (Basel) 2019 Apr 12;9(4). Epub 2019 Apr 12.

University of Trento, Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering, via Mesiano 77, 38123 Trento, Italy.

The atomic disorder and the vibrational properties of Pd nanocubes have been studied through a combined use of X-ray diffraction and molecular dynamics simulations. The latter show that the trend of the mean square relative displacement as a function of the radius of the coordination shells is characteristic of the nanoparticle shape and can be described by a combined model: A correlated Debye model for the thermal displacement and a parametric expression for the static disorder. This combined model, supplemented by results of line profile analysis of the diffraction patterns collected at different temperatures (100, 200, and 300 K) can explain the observed increase in the Debye-Waller coefficient, and shed light on the effect of the finite domain size and of the atomic disorder on the vibrational properties of metal nanocrystals.

Materials exhibiting a substitutional disorder such as multicomponent alloys and mixed metal oxides/oxyfluorides are of great importance in many scientific and technological sectors. Disordered materials constitute an overwhelmingly large configurational space, which makes it practically impossible to be explored manually using first-principles calculations such as density functional theory (DFT) due to the high computational costs. Consequently, the use of methods such as cluster expansion (CE) is vital in enhancing our understanding of the disordered materials. Read More

School of Chemistry Physics and Mechanical Engineering and Institute for Future Environments, Queensland University of Technology Faculty of Science and Engineering, Brisbane, Queensland, AUSTRALIA.

Recent advances in helium ion microscopy (HIM) have enabled the use of fine-focused He+ beams to image and shape materials at the nanoscale. In addition to traditional ion milling, the beam can also be used to induce reactions, such as cross-linking, in films of organic molecules. Here, we compare the use of focused ion and electron beams to fabricate spatially-defined cross-linked features in nanometre-thick films of tetracene. Read More

Suppression of Monoclinic Phase Transitions of O3-Type Cathodes Based on Electronic Delocalization for Na-Ion Batteries.

ACS Appl Mater Interfaces 2019 Apr 23. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

As high capacity cathodes, O3-type Na-based oxides always suffer from a series of monoclinic transitions upon sodiation/desodiation, mainly caused by Na/vacancy ordering and Jahn-Teller distortion, leading to rapid structural degradation and serious performance fading. Herein, a simple modulation strategy is proposed to address this issue based on refrainment of electron localization in expectation to alleviate the charge ordering and change of electronic structure, which always lead to Na/vacancy ordering and Jahn-Teller distortion respectively. According to density functional theory calculations, Fe with slightly larger radius is introduced into NaNiMnO with the intention of enlarging transition metal layers and facilitating electronic delocalization.

Active Site Glu165 Activation in Triosephosphate Isomerase and its Deprotonation Kinetics.

J Phys Chem B 2019 Apr 23. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

Triosephosphate isomerase (TIM) catalyzes the interconversion between dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP) and D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate (GAP), via an enediol(ate) intermediate. The active site residue Glu165 serves as the catalytic base during catalysis. It abstracts a proton from C1 carbon of DHAP to form reaction intermediate and donates a proton to C2 carbon of the intermediate to form product GAP. Read More

Graphite and Graphene Fairy Circles: A Bottom-Up Approach for the Formation of Nanocorrals.

ACS Nano 2019 Apr 23. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

A convenient covalent functionalization approach and nanopatterning method of graphite and graphene is developed. In contrast to expectations, electrochemically activated dediazotization of a mixture of two aryl diazonium compounds in aqueous media leads to a spatially inhomogeneous functionalization of graphitic surfaces, creating covalently modified surfaces with quasi-uniform spaced islands of pristine graphite or graphene, coined nanocorrals. Cyclic voltammetry (CV) and chronoamperometry (CA) approaches are compared. Read More

Photo Atomic Layer Etching of GaAs/AlGaAs Nanoheterostructures.

ACS Appl Mater Interfaces 2019 Apr 23. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

Photo atomic layer etching (photo-ALE) of GaAs and AlGaAs semiconductors was investigated in deionized H2O and aqueous solution of NH4OH under weak excitation conditions (P  20 mW/cm2). The process is based on digital photocorrosion in a processed solution and a negligible corrosion during the light-off phase employed for dissolution of the photocorrosion products. An inductively-coupled plasma mass spectroscopy (ICP-MS) analysis revealed that photo-ALE of GaAs in an aqueous solution of NH4OH proceeds linearly with the number of reaction cycles, typically at ~ 0.

Intertwined Solitons and Impurities in a Quasi-One-Dimensional Charge-Density-Wave System: In/Si(111).

Phys Rev Lett 2019 Jan;122(1):016102

Department of Applied Physics, Sookmyung Women's University, Seoul 04310, Korea.

Recent studies on a quasi-one-dimensional (quasi-1D) charge-density-wave (CDW) system, In atomic wires on Si(111), have brought intriguing issues on topological solitons in quasi-1D systems: the existence of few-atom-sized solitons, chirality of solitons, and the realization of logic exploiting the chirality switching. Using scanning tunneling microscopy and first-principles calculations, we show that the previously reported "short" phase-flip defects are In adatoms and thus have nonsolitonic nature, resolving the controversy over the existence of highly localized solitons. The observed "long" phase-flip and phase-slip defects are genuine solitons with and without chirality, respectively. Read More

Tailored Single-Atom Collisions at Ultralow Energies.

Phys Rev Lett 2019 Jan;122(1):013401

Department of Physics and Research Center OPTIMAS, Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, 67663 Kaiserslautern, Germany.

We employ collisions of individual atomic cesium (Cs) impurities with an ultracold rubidium (Rb) gas to probe atomic interaction with hyperfine- and Zeeman-state sensitivity. Controlling the Rb bath's internal state yields access to novel phenomena observed in interatomic spin exchange. These can be tailored at ultralow energies, owing to the excellent experimental control over all relevant energy scales. Read More

Accurate in situ Measurement of Ellipticity Based on Subcycle Ionization Dynamics.

Phys Rev Lett 2019 Jan;122(1):013203

Institute of Atomic and Molecular Physics, Jilin University, Changchun 130012, China.

Elliptically polarized laser pulses (EPLPs) are widely applied in many fields of ultrafast sciences, but the ellipticity (ϵ) has never been in situ measured in the interaction zone of the laser focus. In this Letter, we propose and realize a robust scheme to retrieve the ϵ by temporally overlapping two identical counterrotating EPLPs. The combined linearly electric field is coherently controlled to ionize Xe atoms by varying the phase delay between the two EPLPs. Read More

Photon-Mediated Spin-Exchange Dynamics of Spin-1 Atoms.

Phys Rev Lett 2019 Jan;122(1):010405

Department of Physics, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305, USA.

We report direct observations of photon-mediated spin-exchange interactions in an atomic ensemble. Interactions extending over a distance of 500  μm are generated within a cloud of cold rubidium atoms coupled to a single mode of light in an optical resonator. We characterize the system via quench dynamics and imaging of the local magnetization, verifying the coherence of the interactions and demonstrating optical control of their strength and sign.

J. Stefan Institute, 1000 Ljubljana.

We report on the first Belle search for a light CP-odd Higgs boson, A^{0}, that decays into low mass dark matter, χ, in final states with a single photon and missing energy. We search for events produced via the dipion transition ϒ(2S)→ϒ(1S)π^{+}π^{-}, followed by the on-shell process ϒ(1S)→γA^{0} with A^{0}→χχ, or by the off-shell process ϒ(1S)→γχχ. Utilizing a data sample of 157. Read More

Phonon Spectroscopy at Atomic Resolution.

Phys Rev Lett 2019 Jan;122(1):016103

School of Physics, University of Melbourne, Parkville, Victoria 3010, Australia.

Advances in source monochromation in transmission electron microscopy have opened up new possibilities for investigations of condensed matter using the phonon-loss sector of the energy-loss spectrum. Here, we explore the spatial variations of the spectrum as an atomic-sized probe is scanned across a thin flake of hexagonal boron nitride. We demonstrate that phonon spectral mapping of atomic structure is possible. Read More

Photochemical Etching of Carbonyl Groups from a Carbon Matrix: The (001) Diamond Surface.

Phys Rev Lett 2019 Jan;122(1):016802

MQ Photonics Research Centre, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Macquarie University, New South Wales 2109, Australia.

The surface of diamond is reported to undergo nonablative photochemical etching when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation which allows controlled single and partial layer removal of lattice layers. Oxygen termination of surface dangling bonds is known to be crucial for the etching process; however, the exact mechanism of carbon ejection remains unclear. We investigate the interaction of UV laser pulses with oxygen-terminated diamond surfaces using atomic-scale surface characterization combined with first-principles time-dependent density functional theory calculations.

Uniaxial Dynamical Decoupling for an Open Quantum System.

Phys Rev Lett 2019 Jan;122(1):010408

School of Physics and Technology, Wuhan University, Wuhan, Hubei 430072, China.

Dynamical decoupling (DD) is an active and effective method for suppressing decoherence of a quantum system from its environment. In contrast to the nominal biaxial DD, this work presents a uniaxial decoupling protocol that requires a significantly reduced number of pulses and a much lower bias field satisfying the "magic" condition. We show this uniaxial DD protocol works effectively in a number of model systems of practical interest, e. Read More

Interplay between Adsorbates and Polarons: CO on Rutile TiO_{2}(110).

Phys Rev Lett 2019 Jan;122(1):016805

University of Vienna, Faculty of Physics and Center for Computational Materials Science, Vienna 1090, Austria.

Polaron formation plays a major role in determining the structural, electrical, and chemical properties of ionic crystals. Using a combination of first-principles calculations, scanning tunneling microscopy, and atomic force microscopy, we analyze the interaction of polarons with CO molecules adsorbed on the reduced rutile TiO_{2}(110) surface. Adsorbed CO shows attractive coupling with polarons in the surface layer, and repulsive interaction with polarons in the subsurface layer. Read More

University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, Wisconsin, USA.

Signals consistent with the B_{c}^{+}(2S) and B_{c}^{*+}(2S) states are observed in proton-proton collisions at sqrt[s]=13  TeV, in an event sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 143  fb^{-1}, collected by the CMS experiment during the 2015-2018 LHC running periods. These excited b[over ¯]c states are observed in the B_{c}^{+}π^{+}π^{-} invariant mass spectrum, with the ground state B_{c}^{+} reconstructed through its decay to J/ψπ^{+}. The two states are reconstructed as two well-resolved peaks, separated in mass by 29. Read More
