    • Chiral single-wall gold nanotubes 

      Senger, R. T.; Dag, S.; Çıracı, Salim (American Physical Society, 2004)
      The formation of freestanding and tip-suspended chiral-wall (n,m) nanotubes, which were composed of helical atomic strands, from gold atoms was investigated using first-principles calculations, where (n,m) notation defines ...
    • Directed polymers on a disordered tree with a defect subtree 

      Madras, N.; Yıldırım, Gökhan (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2018)
      We study the question of how the competition between bulk disorder and a localized microscopic defect affects the macroscopic behavior of a system in the directed polymer context at the free energy level. We consider the ...
    • Investigation of multi-objective optimization criteria for RNA design 

      Hampson, D. J. D.; Sav, Sinem; Tsang, H. H. (IEEE, 2017-12)
      RNA design is the inverse of RNA folding and it appears to be NP-hard. In RNA design, a secondary structure is given and the goal is to find a nucleotide sequence that will fold into this structure. To find such sequence(s) ...
    • Protein folding rates correlate with heterogeneity of folding mechanism 

      Öztop, B.; Ejtehadi, M. R.; Plotkin, S. S. (American Physical Society, 2004)
      The folding rates of protein were shown to correlate with the degree of heterogeneity in the formation of native contacts. It was shown that both experimental rates and simulated free energy barriers for 2-state proteins ...
    • SIMARD: a simulated annealing based RNA design algorithm with quality pre-selection strategies 

      Sav, Sinem; Hampson, D. J. D.; Tsang, H. H. (IEEE, 2017-12)
      Most of the biological processes including expression levels of genes and translation of DNA to produce proteins within cells depend on RNA sequences, and the structure of the RNA plays vital role for its function. RNA ...
    • Sorption of Cs+ and Ba2+ on magnesite 

      Shahwan, Talal; Süzer, Şefik; Erten, Hasan N. (Cambridge University Press, 1998)
      Sorption behavior of Cs and Ba ions on magnesite was studied using the radiotracer method complemented by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Cs and Ba were used as radiotracers. The sorption of Cs is seen to be temperature ...
    • Theories of nanoparticle and nanostructure formation in liquid phase 

      Karatutlu, A.; Barhoum, A.; Sapelkin, A. (Elsevier, 2018)
      Nanoparticles (NPs) and nanostructured materials exhibit shape- and size-dependent properties that are desired for a wide variety of applications, such as catalysis, sensing, drug delivery, energy production, and storage. ...
