 2019-03-1111:25 [PUBDB-2019-01434] Journal Article et al Role of antisite disorder, electron-electron correlations, and a surface valence transition in the electronic structure of $\mathrm{CeMnNi_{4}}$ Physical review / B 99(3), 035102 (2019) [10.1103/PhysRevB.99.035102]   $\mathrm{CeMnNi_{4}}$ exhibits an unusually large spin polarization, but its origin has baffled researchers for more than a decade. We use bulk sensitive hard x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (HAXPES) and density functional theory based on the Green's function technique to demonstrate the importance of electron-electron correlations of both the Ni 3d (U$_{Ni}$) and Mn 3d (U$_{Mn}$) electrons in explaining the valence band of this multiply correlated material [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-03-0112:30 [PUBDB-2019-01275] Journal Article et al In Operando Synchrotron Diffraction and in Operando X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy Investigations of Orthorhombic $\mathrm{V_{2}O_{5}}$ Nanowires as Cathode Materials for Mg-Ion Batteries Journal of the American Chemical Society 141(6), 2305 - 2315 (2019) [10.1021/jacs.8b08998]   Orthorhombic $\mathrm{V_{2}O_{5}}$ nanowires were successfully synthesized via a hydrothermal method. A cell-configuration system was built utilizing $\mathrm{V_{2}O_{5}}$ as the cathode and 1 M Mg(ClO$_4$)$_2$ electrolyte within acetonitrile, together with Mg$_x$Mo$_6$S$_8$ (x ≈ 2) as the anode to investigate the structural evolution and oxidation state and local structural changes of $\mathrm{V_{2}O_{5}}$.

The memory effects in the dc magnetometry exhibit similar characteristic features of the spin-glass systems. [...] Published on 2018-11-12.

Difficulties arise due to ill-defined anchoring of the nanocrystals on a substrate and reactivity of the substrate under different reaction conditions. [...] Published on 2018-10-27.

While this has led to increased interest in Al-doped systems, including $\mathrm{LiNi_{0.8}Co_{0.15}Al_{0.05}O_{2}}$ (NCA), the aluminum surface environment has not been thoroughly investigated.

Since these units are going to be integrated in the upstream part of the beamlines in the optics hutches, the primary design goal was to ensure reliability, failsafe operation and convenient optical alignment combined with high mechanical precision.

All precise high-pressure and high-temperature experiments nevertheless report 0.5–2 GPa lower transition pressures than those expected at the discontinuity depth (i.e [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-01-2813:59 [PUBDB-2019-00796] Journal Article et al Revealing the Influence of Silver in Ni–Ag Catalysts on the Selectivity of Higher Olefin Synthesis from Stearic Acid Russian journal of physical chemistry / A 92(1), 57 - 65 (2018) [10.1134/S0036024417120068]   Results on the conversion of stearic acid to olefins over Ni–Ag/γ-Al$_2$O$_3$ catalysts are presented.
