  • Single-cell stochastic modelling of the action of antimicrobial peptides on bacteria 

    Teimouri,Hamid; Nguyen, Thao N.; Kolomeisky, Anatoly B.; Center for Theoretical Biological Physics (2021)
    Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) produced by multi-cellular organisms as their immune system's defence against microbes are actively considered as natural alternatives to conventional antibiotics. Although substantial progress has been achieved in studying the AMPs, the microscopic mechanisms of their functioning remain not well understood. Here, we ...

    Zheng, Liheng; Chen, Lunjin; Chan, Anthony A.; Wang, Peng; Xia, Zhiyang; (2021)
    Recent proceedings in radiation belt studies have proposed new requirements for numerical methods to solve the kinetic equations involved. In this article, we present a numerical solver that can solve the general form of the radiation belt Fokker–Planck equation and Boltzmann equation in arbitrarily provided coordinate systems and with user-specified ...

  • Design of organic structure directing agents to control the synthesis of zeolites for carbon capture and storage 

    Daeyaert, Frits; W. Deem, Michael (2019)
    We have de novo designed organic structure directing agents (OSDAs) for zeolites that have been predicted to be effective materials for carbon capture and storage. The zeolites were selected for their reduced parasitic energy when used as CO2 adsorbants in a pressure–temperature swing process in coal- or natural gas-fired power plants. Synthetically ...

  • First Results on the Scalar WIMP-Pion Coupling, Using the XENON1T Experiment 

    XENON Collaboration (2019)
    We present first results on the scalar coupling of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) to pions from 1 t yr of exposure with the XENON1T experiment. This interaction is generated when the WIMP couples to a virtual pion exchanged between the nucleons in a nucleus. In contrast to most nonrelativistic operators, these pion-exchange currents can ...
