MARVEL Contributions Result in Two Editors' Suggestions in Physical Review Materials in November

This was published on December 4, 2018

Research from NCCR MARVEL scientists and colleagues resulted in not one but two Editors' Suggestions in Physical Review Materials in November.  

In one paper, "Mobility of two-dimensional materials from first principles in an accurate and automated framework," Thibault Sohier, Davide Campi and Nicola Marzari of EPFL and colleague Marco Gibertini , formerly of MARVEL as well and now at the University of Geneva, presented a first-principles approach for computing the transport properties of 2D materials in an accurate and automated framework. 

In the other paper, Topological phonons and thermoelectricity in triple-point metals, Alexey A. Soluyanov at the University of Zurich and colleagues provided strong theoretical and numerical evidence that for a class of metallic compounds known as triple-point topological metals, the points in the phonon spectrum, at which three (two optical and one acoustic) phonon modes (bands) cross, represent a well-defined topological material phase, in which the hosting metals have very strong thermoelectric response.
