Study data from University of Hyderabad update knowledge of computational materials science
January 29th, 2009
According to recent research from Hyderabad, India, "In this paper, we report results of non-Boltzmann Monte Carlo simulation of a cubic lattice model of a liquid crystal elastomer. A pseudo-Hamiltonian proposed recently forms the basis of our simulation."
"We have employed Frontier sampling in conjunction with Wang-Landau algorithm which helps sample the microstate space in such a way that all energy regions are visited with equal probability. We investigate the interplay between the nematic and elastic degrees of freedom," wrote D. Jayasri and colleagues, University of Hyderabad.
The researchers concluded: "We find that with increase of cross-link...
