Uniaxial strain-induced phase transition in the 2D topological semimetal IrTe2

Nicholson, Christopher W. ; Rumo, Maxime ; Pulkkinen, Aki ; Kremer, Geoffroy ; Salzmann, Björn ; Mottas, Marie-Laure ; Hildebrand, Baptiste ; Jaouen, Thomas ; Kim, Timur K. ; Mukherjee, Saumya ; Ma, KeYuan ; Muntwiler, Matthias ; von Rohr, Fabian O. ; Cacho, Cephise ; Monney, Claude

Strain is ubiquitous in solid-state materials, but despite its fundamental importance and technological relevance, leveraging externally applied strain to gain control over material properties is still in its infancy. In particular, strain control over the diverse phase transitions and topological states in two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides remains an open challenge. Here, we...

Quantification of Lithological Heterogeneity Within Opalinus Clay : Toward a Uniform Subfacies Classification Scheme Using a Novel Automated Core Image Recognition Tool

Lauper, Bruno ; Zimmerli, Géraldine N. ; Jaeggi, David ; Deplazes, Gaudenz ; Wohlwend, Stephan ; Rempfer, Johannes ; Foubert, Anneleen

In: Frontiers in Earth Science, 2021, vol. 9, p. 645596

The Opalinus Clay is notable in Switzerland as being the selected host rock for deep geological disposal of radioactive waste. Since the early 1990’s, this argillaceous mudstone formation of Jurassic age has been intensively studied within the framework of national and international projects to characterize its geological, hydrological, mechanical, thermal, chemical, and biological...

A general theory of rock glacier creep based on in-situ and remote sensing observations

Cicoira, Alessandro ; Marcer, Marco ; Gärtner‐Roer, Isabelle ; Bodin, Xavier ; Arenson, Lukas U. ; Vieli, Andreas

In: Permafrost and Periglacial Processes, 2020, vol. 32, no. 1, p. 139-153

The ongoing acceleration in rock glacier velocities concurrent with increasing air temperatures, and the widespread onset of rock glacier destabilization have reinforced the interest in rock glacier dynamics and in its coupling to the climate system. Despite the increasing number of studies investigating this phenomenon, our knowledge of both the fundamental mechanisms controlling rock...

Structural diversity with varying disorder enables the multicolored display in the longhorn beetle Sulawesiella rafaelae

Bermúdez-Ureña, Esteban ; Kilchoer, Cédric ; Lord, Nathan P. ; Steiner, Ullrich ; Wilts, Bodo

In: iScience, 2020, vol. 23, no. 7, p. -

Light control through layered photonic nanostructures enables the strikingly colored displays of many beetles, birds, and butterflies. To achieve different reflected colors, natural organisms mainly rely on refractive index variations or scaling of a fixed structure design, as opposed to varying the type of structure. Here, we describe the presence of distinct coloration mechanisms in the...
