    Phase-change materials and devices have received much attention as a potential route to the realization of various types of unconventional computing paradigms. In this letter, we present non-von Neumann arithmetic processing ...
  • Accuracy and computational efficiency of 2D urban surface flood modelling based on cellular automata 

    Gibson, MJ; Savić, DA; DJordjević, S; Chen, AS; Fraser, S; Watson, T (Elsevier, 2016-08-21)
    There is an emerging abundance freely available of high resolution (one meter or less) LIDAR data due to the advent of remote sensing, which enables wider applications of detailed flood risk modelling and analysis. Digital ...
  • Accuracy of expressions for the magnetic field of a ring head 

    Middleton, Barry K.; Aziz, Mustafa M.; Miles, J. J. (IEEE, 2000)
    The Fourier method used by Fan has produced a representation of the field of a semi-infinite pole head consisting of a simple analytical approximation (Karlqvist field) plus an infinite series of correction terms. A method ...
  • Accurate determination of electron-hole asymmetry and next-nearest neighbor hopping in graphene 

    Kretinin, A; Yu, GL; Jalil, R; Cao, Y; Withers, F; Mishchenko, A; Katsnelson, MI; Novoselov, KS; Geim, AK; Guinea, F (American Physical Society, 2013-10-29)
    The next-nearest neighbor hopping term t' determines a magnitude and, hence, importance of several phenomena in graphene, which include self-doping due to broken bonds and the Klein tunneling that in the presence of t' is ...
  • Acoustoelectric Current in Graphene Nanoribbons 

    Poole, T; Nash, GR (Springer Nature, 2017-05-11)
    Surface acoustic waves (SAWs) propagating on piezoelectric substrates offer a convenient, contactless approach to probing the electronic properties of low-dimensional charge carrier systems such as graphene nanoribbons ...
