  • Nonuniform structures of the nucleon matter at subnuclear densities are numerically studied by means of the density functional theory with relativistic mean fields coupled with the electric field. A particular role of the charge screening effects is demonstrated.
  • In supernova cores and neutron star crusts, nuclei are thought to deform to rodlike and slablike shapes, which are often called nuclear pasta. We study the equilibrium properties of the nuclear pasta by using a liquid-drop model with curvature corrections. It is confirmed that the curvature effect acts to lower the transition densities between different shapes. We also examine the gyroid structure, which was recently suggested as a different type of nuclear pasta by analogy with the polymer systems. The gyroid structure investigated in this paper is approximately formulated as an extension of the periodic minimal surface whose mean curvaturemore » vanishes. In contrast to our expectations, we find, from the present approximate formulation, that the curvature corrections act to slightly disfavor the appearance of the gyroid structure. By comparing the energy corrections in the gyroid phase and the hypothetical phases composed of d-dimensional spheres, where d is a general dimensionality, we show that the gyroid is unlikely to belong to a family of the generalized dimensional spheres.« less
  • We have studied the energetics and charge tranfer of the (10,0) and (6,6) single walled carbon nanotubes with various defects such as monovacancy and Stone-Wales defect and their interaction with the Hydrogen Sulphide gas molecule using Ab Initio based computational method to design Single Walled Carbon Nanotube based gas sensor . We have also investigated the effect of Gold doping in Carbon Nanotubes on the adsorption of Hydrogen Sulphide gas molecule. We demonstrate that the adsorption energy as well as charge transfer is affected by the introduction of defects at the surface of the CNTs resulting in improved sensitivity formore » the Hydrogen Sulphide gas molecules compared to the pristine CNT.« less
