Background: Dust grains condensed in the outflows of presolar classical novae should have been present in the protosolar nebula. Candidates for such presolar nova grains have been found in primitive meteorites and can in principle be identified by th...

Quasicrystal formation in binary soft matter mixtures (2020)
Journal Article
Scacchi, A., Somerville, W. R. C., Buzza, D. M. A., & Archer, A. J. (2020). Quasicrystal formation in binary soft matter mixtures. Physical Review Research, 2(3), https://doi.org/10.1103/physrevresearch.2.032043

Using a strategy that may be applied in theory or in experiments, we identify the regime in which a model binary soft matter mixture forms quasicrystals. The system is described using classical density functional theory combined with integral equatio... Read More about Quasicrystal formation in binary soft matter mixtures.

Origin of Large Meteoritic SiC Stardust Grains in Metal-rich AGB Stars (2020)
Journal Article
Lugaro, M., Cseh, B., Világos, B., Karakas, A. I., Ventura, P., Dell’Agli, F., …Nittler, L. R. (2020). Origin of Large Meteoritic SiC Stardust Grains in Metal-rich AGB Stars. The Astrophysical journal, 898(2), https://doi.org/10.3847/1538-4357/ab9e74

Stardust grains that originated in ancient stars and supernovae are recovered from meteorites and carry the detailed composition of their astronomical sites of origin. We present evidence that the majority of large (μm-sized) meteoritic silicon carbi... Read More about Origin of Large Meteoritic SiC Stardust Grains in Metal-rich AGB Stars.

Evaporative Mass Loss Measurement as a Quality Control Tool for Quality Assurance in the Manufacture of Inks Suitable for High Speed (≥60 m/min) Printing (2020)
Journal Article
Ward, H. J., Armstrong-Telfer, T. A., Kelly, S. M., Lawrence, N. S., & Wadhawan, J. (in press). Evaporative Mass Loss Measurement as a Quality Control Tool for Quality Assurance in the Manufacture of Inks Suitable for High Speed (≥60 m/min) Printing . Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry,

In any manufacturing environment, it is always important to be able to embrace a culture of traceability of any non-conformed product. For the case of ink manufacture, operator confusion, leading to the mixing-up of solvents, or connecting the incorr...

The site-specific first microsolvation step of furan and some of its derivatives with methanol is explored to benchmark the ability of quantum-chemical methods to describe the structure, energetics, and vibrational spectrum at low temperature. Infrar... Read More about The first microsolvation step for furans : new experiments and benchmarking strategies.

Chromium Nucleosynthesis and Silicon-Carbon Shell Mergers in Massive Stars (2020)
Journal Article

We analyze the production of the element Cr in galactic chemical evolution (GCE) models using the NuGrid nucleosynthesis yields set. We show that the unusually large [Cr/Fe] abundance at [Fe/H] ≈ 0 reported by previous studies using those yields and...

Evaluation of the $^{13}$N($\alpha$,p)$^{16}$O thermonuclear reaction rate and its impact on the isotopic composition of supernova grains (2020)
Journal Article

It has been suggested that hydrogen ingestion into the helium shell of massive stars could lead to high $^{13}$C and $^{15}$N excesses when the shock of a core-collapse supernova passes through its helium shell. This prediction questions the origin o... Read More about Evaluation of the $^{13}$N($\alpha$,p)$^{16}$O thermonuclear reaction rate and its impact on the isotopic composition of supernova grains.
