Our papers are the official record of our discoveries. They allow others to build on and apply our work. Each paper is the result of many months of research, so we make a special effort to make them clear, beautiful and inspirational, and publish them in leading journals.

  • Reconstructing grain-shape statistics from electron back-scatter diffraction microscopy

    RFR. FarrZVMHEG Physical Review Materials

    Grain shape inference

    The distributions of size and shape of a material’s grains can be constructed from a 2D slice of the material and electron diffraction data.

  • Predicting interface structures: from  SrTiO 3  to graphene

    GSCPC. Pickard Physical Review B

    Predicting interface structures

    Generating random structures in the vicinity of a material’s defect predicts the low and high energy atomic structure at the grain boundary.

  • Random close packing fractions of lognormal distributions of hard spheres

    RFR. Farr Powder Technology

    Random close packing fractions

    Lognormal distributions (and mixtures of same) are a useful model for the size distribution in emulsions and sediments.

  • Diffusional Monte Carlo model of liquid-phase sintering

    RFR. Farr Mathematics and Computers in Simulation

    Diffusional liquid-phase sintering

    A Monte Carlo model simulates the microstructural evolution of metallic and ceramic powders during the consolidation process liquid-phase sintering.
