Recent experimental discoveries of graphene-stabilized patches of two-dimensional (2D) metals have motivated also their computational studies. However, so far the studies have been restricted to ideal and infinite 2D metallic monolayers, which is insufficient because in reality the properties of such metallic patches are governed by microstructures pervaded by edges, defects, and several types of perturbations. Here we use density-functional theory to calculate edge and vacancy formation energies of hexagonal and square lattices of 45 elemental 2D metals. We find that the edge and vacancy formation energies are strongly correlated and decrease with increasing Wigner-Seitz radii, analogously to surface energies. Despite a radical reduction in atomic coordination numbers, the 2D and three-dimensional (3D) vacancy formation energies and work functions are nearly the same for each metal. Finally, static polarizabilities reveal a clear cubic dependence on bond length. These trends provide useful insights when moving towards reality with elemental 2D metals. ...

Tian, Yolan (University of Jyväskylä, 2016)This thesis focuses on studying phononic crystal structures. More specifically, it is aimed at fabrication and measurement of thermal properties of two-dimensional (2D) periodic microstructures and three-dimensional (3D) ...
Understanding Structure and Stability of Monoclinic Zirconia Surfaces from First-Principles Calculations Bazhenov, Andrey; Honkala, Karoliina (Springer New York LLC, 2017)Under the water-rich pre-treatment and/or reaction conditions, structure and chemistry of the monoclinic zirconia surfaces are strongly influenced by oxygen vacancies and incorporated water. Here, we report a ...
Mechanistic Origins of the pH Dependency in Au-Catalyzed Glycerol Electro-oxidation : Insight from First-Principles Calculations Verma, Anand M.; Laverdure, Laura; Melander, Marko M.; Honkala, Karoliina (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2022)Electrocatalytic oxidation of glycerol (EOG) is an attractive approach to convert surplus glycerol to value-added products. Experiments have shown that EOG activity and selectivity depend not only on the electrocatalyst ...
Kähärä, Topi; Koskinen, Pekka (American Physical Society (APS), 2020)Two-dimensional materials and their mechanical properties are known to be profoundly affected by rippling deformations. However, although ripples are fairly well understood, less is known about their origin and controlled ...
Koskinen, Pekka (American Physical Society (APS), 2021)The flexibility of two-dimensional (2D) materials enables static and dynamic ripples that are known to cause lateral contraction, shrinking of the material boundary. However, the limits of 2D materials' lateral expansion ...
