We present a 3D adhesion model based on the JKR theory applied locally for all contacting asperity couple and the calculations account the van der Waals interaction beside the externally applied force. Thus, equilibrium of [...]
We present a system of coupled degrees of freedom that can effectively describe the localization of intra-molecular excitations in the charge transfer solid PtCl. These excitations correspond to the Raman active motion of chlorines (symmetric [...]
The electroreduction of hydrogen on Pt(111) in acidic media is the primary fuel cell reaction. The explicit mechanism for this process involves a first order phase transition, which is due to the rotation of the [...]

Nano-crystalline metals, in which the size of grains is in the nanometer range, exhibit physical properties different from ordinary polycrystalline materials, thus these materials are of technological interest . One example is the increasing hardness [...]
