AB  - Aluminum nitride (AlN) and boron nitride (BN) are well-known ceramic materials with numerous valuable properties, whereas recently there is a growing field of research on the AlN/BN advanced ceramic materials. Here, we present a study on boron-rich AlN, structural and electronic properties, and structure–property relationship. Several AlxB1−xN solid solutions (x = 1, .875, .75, and .625) have been investigated, and structure optimization has been performed for four different structure types: h-BN, wurtzite, sphalerite, and rock salt. First-principles calculations were performed using hybrid B3LYP functional. New modifications and compounds have been predicted as a function of boron concentration in AlN, and especially, interesting phase transitions were found at extreme pressure conditions. Electronic properties and band structures were computed, and the possibility for bandgap tuning has been discovered. The present study, and especially the structure–property relationship, gives new possibilities for bandgap engineering in boron-rich AlN electroceramic materials.

AB  - Zinc oxide exhibits unique properties that are reflected in a wide variety of applications, particularly in the field of transparent, conductive films. However, less attention has been paid to their color. Here, we present the synthesis of yellow-gray ZnO films at room temperature by femtosecond pulsed laser deposition. In situ Raman investigations of these polycrystalline ZnO films reveal the existence of superoxide ions, O2−, in zinc oxide, which are responsible for the yellow color, and are also detected in ZnO powder and single crystals. In addition, further dioxygen species are identified in the samples, including the O2-molecule. The negative charge excess caused by the dioxygen species creates metallic zinc as a byproduct. Structural analysis reveals an unforced realization of the dioxygen species in the ZnO lattice. Density functional theory (DFT) calculations support the assumed structural displacements as well as the observed, unexpected Raman bands. These results open up completely new insights into the behavior of ZnO.

AB  - Escin is an amphiphilic and weakly acidic drug that oral administration may lead to the irritation of gastric mucosa. The entrapment of escin into chitosan (CH)/xanthan gum (XG)-based polyelectrolyte complexes (PECs) can facilitate controlled drug release which may be beneficial for the reduction of its side effects. This study aimed to investigate the influence of escin content and drying method on the formation, physicochemical, and controlled, pH-dependent drug release properties of CH/XG-based PECs. Measurements of transmittance, con- ductivity, and rheological characterization confirmed the formation of CH/XG-based PECs with escin entrapped at escin-to-polymers mass ratios 1:1, 1:2, and 1:4. Ambient-dried PECs had higher yield, entrapment efficiency, and escin content in comparison with spray-dried ones. FT-IR spectra confirmed the interactions between CH, XG, and escin, which were stronger in ambient-dried PECs. PXRD and DSC analyses showed the amorphous escin character in all dry PECs, regardless of the drying method. The most promising controlled and pH-dependent in vitro escin release was from the ambient-dried PEC at the escin-to-polymers mass ratio of 1:1. For that reason and due to the highest yield and entrapment efficiency, this carrier has the potential to prevent the irritation of gastric mucosa after oral administration of escin.

AB  - Thyroid hormones (TH) have a significant impact on cellular oxidative metabolism. Besides that,they maintain vascular homeostasis by positive effects on endothelial and vascular smooth muscle cells. Subclinical(SCH) and clinical (CH) hypothyroidism influences target organs by changing their morphology andfunction and impaired blood and oxygen supply induced by accelerated atherosclerosis. The increased risk ofacceleration and extension of atherosclerosis in patients with SCH and CH could be explained by dyslipidemia,diastolic hypertension, increased arterial stiffness, endothelial dysfunction, and altered blood coagulation. Instabilityof atherosclerotic plaque in hypothyroidism could cause excessive activity of the elements of innateimmunity, which are characterized by the significant presence of macrophages in atherosclerotic plaques, increasednuclear factor kappa B (NFkB) expression, and elevated levels of tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) andmatrix metalloproteinase (MMP) 9, with reduced interstitial collagen; all of them together creates inflammationmilieu, resulting in plaque rupture. Optimal substitution by levothyroxine (LT4) restores biochemical euthyroidism.In postmenopausal women and elderly patients with hypothyroidism and associated vascularcomorbidity, excessive LT4 substitution could lead to atrial rhythm disorders and osteoporosis. Therefore, it isof interest to maintain thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels in the reference range, thus eliminating thedeleterious effects of lower or higher TSH levels on the cardiovascular system. This review summarizes the recentliterature on subclinical and clinical hypothyroidism and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and discussesthe effects of LT4 replacement therapy on restoring biochemical euthyroidism and atherosclerosis processes.

AB  - Nickel acetate tetrahydrate (NAT) sample series were used to modify screen-printed carbon electrodes (SPCE). The samples were hybrid Ni/NiO nanocomposites, where the NiO phase increased with an applied treatment temperature. Results of electrochemical measurements pointed that the Ni/NiO550/SPCE-modified electrode had the best analytical performance toward the detection of riboflavin (RF). The Ni/NiO550/SPCE-based sensor showed linear response with RF in the concentration range of 0.5–75 μM and 0.15 μM LOD in BRBS. Sensor offered fast response time, good repeatability, and selectivity with an RSD of 1.4 %. Our results show that the Ni:NiO nanocomposite ratio strongly influenced the electroanalytical performance of SPCE.

AB  - Background Myocardial infarction (MI) leads to ischemia and afterward to left ventricular (LV) remodeling. Matrix metalloproteinase−1 (MMP1) and −3 (MMP3) belong to the family of endopeptidases and together they can dissolve most of the components of the extracellular matrix. MMP1 and MMP3 variants have been investigated solely in association with ischemic heart disease and LV dysfunction, but not in haplotype. The aims of this study were to investigate the association of haplotypes inferred from MMP1 rs1799750 (−1607 1G/2G; NC_000011.9:g.102670497del) and MMP3 rs35068180 (−1612 5A/6A; NC_000011.9:g.102715952dup) with MI and their effect on the change in echocardiographic parameters of LV structure and function in patients within 6 months after MI. Methods The study included 325 patients with the first MI and 283 healthy controls. Gene variants were detected by PCR-RFLP method. Parameters of LV structure and function were assessed by conventional 2D echocardiography, 3–5 days and 6 months after the first MI, on a subgroup of 160 patients. Haplotype analysis was performed with Thesias software. Results Haplotypes 2G-5A and 1G-6A were significantly and independently associated with MI compared with the reference haplotype 2G-6A (adjusted, p = 0.009 and p = 0.026, respectively). After Bonferroni correction for multiple testing, MMP1 and MMP3 haplotypes lost their association with the change in LV long diameter and stroke volume within 6 months after MI. Conclusion MMP1 and MMP3 haplotypes are strongly associated with MI. Further studies are needed to validate this result and to examine their association with echocardiographic parameters of LV structure and function after MI.

AB  - The operating characteristics of a commercial monocrystalline and amorphous Si-solar cell for outdoor and indoor applications with and without the use of the water flow lens (WFL) system are explored and reported. The cells are tested in indoor conditions with halogen and tungsten lamps, and additionally, in outdoor sun radiation. Changes in the spectra, investigation of the influence of higher and lower lighting, and indirect cooling of the solar cell are possibilities in the application of the used WFL system. After achieving the highest level of development and improvement for the Si-solar cell, as well as approaching theoretical maximum efficiency, it is obvious that efficiency gains can be made by better understanding additional light effects. Measurements made on monocrystalline Si-solar cells revealed that in the “focal point position” where intensity increases (above standard testing conditions [STC]), independently of indoor or outdoor lighting, huge improvements in ISC and VOC were observed. It was found that the ratios of the short-circuit current (ISC) and the input light energy (Pinput) are 5.2 and 24.8 for artificial light and 4.9 and 17.6 for outdoor light, without and with the use of the WFL system, respectively. The same trend after applying the WFL system was observed for the amorphous Si cell, except those oscillations were more pronounced at lower light intensities (far lower than STC), as expected. The ratios of ISC and Pinput are in the range of 5.1–5.3 and 10.5–26.5 without and with the use of the WFL system.

abstract = "The operating characteristics of a commercial monocrystalline and amorphous Si-solar cell for outdoor and indoor applications with and without the use of the water flow lens (WFL) system are explored and reported. The cells are tested in indoor conditions with halogen and tungsten lamps, and additionally, in outdoor sun radiation. Changes in the spectra, investigation of the influence of higher and lower lighting, and indirect cooling of the solar cell are possibilities in the application of the used WFL system. After achieving the highest level of development and improvement for the Si-solar cell, as well as approaching theoretical maximum efficiency, it is obvious that efficiency gains can be made by better understanding additional light effects.

AB  - Biocatalysis utilizes enzymes and microbial cells as catalysts for a wide range of applications in biotechnology. Immobilization of biocatalysts on various materials has several advantages, including the capacity for reuse, quick reaction termination, easy biocatalyst recovery and operational stability. The present article focuses on the use of material supports for developing immobilized biocatalysts in applications related to energy, environment and chemical synthesis. The work provides a comprehensive overview of a broad class of materials, including organic, inorganic and composites, that have been shown to be prosperous candidates to support the immobilization of enzymes and microbial cells. It also highlights the properties of nanomaterial support such as large surface area and comfort compartment for immobilization. The availability of different types of materials as catalyst support provides an opportunity to understand and develop efficient biocatalytic systems. The choice of selecting a catalyst support will mostly depend on the interaction of the material with the enzyme or microbial cell. Finally, potential challenges, future approaches in developing immobilized biocatalytic systems for various applications and novel material supports are suggested. © 2022 Society of Chemical Industry (SCI).

AB  - In this study, four low molecular weight (LMW) excipients, tryptophan (TRY), phenylalanine (PHE), lysine (LYS) and saccharin (SAC) were evaluated as co-formers to generate co-amorphous systems (CAMS) by ball milling with carvedilol (CRV). Mixtures of CRV and LMW excipient in 1:0.5, 1:1 and 1:2 drug:excipient molar ratios were ball milled and analysed by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), Fourier transform (FT-IR) infrared spectroscopy and dissolution testing. CAMS were formed by milling of a mixture of CRV with TRY in 1:2 M ratio and SAC in 1:1 M ratio, while amorphization of only CRV was achieved in other mixtures with SAC. In other samples containing TRY and PHE, milling resulted in partial amorphization, while LYS was the least suitable excipient for the amorphization of CRV. Unexpectedly, the highest supersaturation of CRV was achieved from samples containing CRV and LYS in 1:1 and 1:2 M ratios, despite the absence of a significant reduction in CRV crystallinity upon milling of these samples. Increase of hydrophobic surface area caused by milling of samples with TRY and PHE and agglomeration during dissolution testing of samples containing SAC are likely causes of poor dissolution performance of mixtures containing fully or partially amorphous CRV.

AB  - As a renewable resource, starch is considered to be fully biodegradable and nonpolluting to the environment but the hygroscopicity of starch is the main disadvantage for wider applicability in the production of a polymer-based material. Hydrophobically modified starch prepared using natural-based plasticizers/modifiers in a first step ([-]-diisopropyl D-tartrate [DiPT], ricinoleic acid [RA] and epoxidized soybean oil [ESO]), and maleated polypropylene (MAPP) in a second step contributed to better compatibility, and thus reinforcing of composites. Tailored processing conditions, structural/morphological properties, hydrophobicity, and water-resistance of the modified starch were established. In addition, the Charpy impact and tensile strength of composites, based on poly(ethylene-co-acrylic acid) (EAA) and modified starches, were determined. Increased tensile strength and Young modulus of the composite using starch-modified with DiPT-MAPP, that is, 3 and 83%, respectively, indicated the possible applicability of obtained materials.

AB  - Polymer matrix composite materials have found application in dentistry because of good mechanical properties, aesthetic, easy processing, and possibilities of the repair. Acrylates are materials used to make and repair dentures. Reinforcements in the form of short glass or polymer fibers are added to improve the mechanical properties of dental polymers. In this study, the processing of composite material with a polymer matrix from commercial auto-polymerized acrylate Simgal, with reinforcement in the form of short poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) fibers was examined. Samples were processed in three series: pure Simgal, Simgal/PET 1 wt% and Simgal/PET 3 wt%. The influence of the reinforcement in the form of short PET fibers on the mechanical properties of composite materials was investigated. Strength and hardness were tested by impact testing and Vickers microhardness, and it was shown that there is an increase in absorbed energy and hardness. The modulus was reduced by the addition of PET fibers and by increasing the amount of fibers in the composite. The increase in the amount of PET fibers also resulted in a smaller loss of surface mass of the samples compared to the pure matrix by 63% and 93%, respectively. Cavitation test revealed better cavitation resistance of composites than the pure acrylate.

AB  - Aims GABAergic modulation involved in cognitive processing appears to be substantially changed in Alzheimer's disease (AD). In a widely used 5xFAD model of AD, we aimed to assess if negative and positive allosteric modulators of α5 GABAA receptors (NAM and PAM, respectively) would affect social interaction, social, object and spatial memory, and neuroinflammation. Methods After 10-day treatment with PAM, NAM, or solvent, 6-month-old transgenic and non-transgenic 5xFAD mice underwent testing in a behavioral battery. Gene expressions of IL-1β, IL-6, TNF-α, GFAP, and IBA-1 were determined in hippocampus and prefrontal cortex by qPCR. Results PAM treatment impaired spatial learning in transgenic females compared to solvent-treated transgenic females, and social recognition in transgenic and non-transgenic males. NAM treatment declined social interaction in transgenic and non-transgenic males, while had beneficial effect on cognitive flexibility in non-transgenic males compared to solvent-treated non-transgenic males. Transgenic animals have not fully displayed cognitive symptoms, but neuroinflammation was confirmed. NAM reduced proinflammatory gene expressions in transgenic females and astrogliosis in transgenic males compared to pathological controls. Conclusion PAM and NAM failed to exert favorable behavioral effects in transgenic animals. Suppression of neuroinflammation obtained with NAM calls for more studies with GABAergic ligands in amyloid beta- and/or tau-dependent models with prominent neuroinflammation.

AB  - Theoretical tools or structure-property relations that enable the prediction of metal hydrides are of enormous interest in developing new hydrogen storage materials. Density functional theory (DFT) is one such approach that provides accurate hydride formation energies, which, if complemented with vibrational zero-point energy and other contributions, provides accurate hydride formation enthalpies. However, this approach is time consuming and, therefore, often avoided, hindering the modeling of experimental behavior. The recent implementation of graph neural networks (GNN) in materials science enables fast prediction of crystal formation energy with a DFT accuracy. Starting from the MatErials Graph Network (MEGNet), transfer learning is applied to develop a model for predicting hydride formation enthalpy based on the crystal structure of the starting intermetallic. Excellent accuracy is achieved for Mg-containing alloys, allowing the screening of the Mg-Ni-M ternary intermetallics. In addition, data containing matching experimental properties and crystal structure of metal hydrides are provided, enabling future development.

AB  - Objectives This study aimed to experimentally validate dysregulated expression of miRNA candidates selected through updated meta-analysis of most commonly deregulated miRNAs in oral cancer and to explore their diagnostic and prognostic potential. Materials and methods Five miRNAs (miR-31-3p, miR-135b-5p, miR-18a-5p, miR-30a-5p and miR-139-5p) from updated meta-signature were selected for validation by qRT-PCR method in 35 oral cancer clinical specimens and adjacent non-cancerous tissue. Results Updated meta-analysis has identified 13 most commonly deregulated miRNAs in oral cancer. Seven miRNAs were consistently up-regulated (miR-21-5p, miR-31-3p, miR-135b-5p, miR-31-5p, miR-424-5p, miR-18a-5p and miR-21-3p), while five were down-regulated (miR-139-5p, miR-30a-3p, miR-375-3p, miR-376c-3p and miR-30a-5p). Increased expression of miR-31-3p and miR-135b-5p, and decreased expression of miR-139-5p and miR-30a-5p were confirmed in oral cancer compared to adjacent non-cancerous tissue. A three miRNAs combination (miR-31-3p, miR-139-5p and miR-30a-5p) gave the most promising diagnostic potential for discriminating oral cancer from non-cancerous tissue (AUC: 0.780 [95% CI: 0.673–0.886], p < 0.0005, sensitivity 94.3%, specificity 51.4%). High expression of miR-135b-5p, miR-18a-5p and miR-30a-5p was associated with poor survival (p = 0.003, p = 0.048, p = 0.016 respectively). Conclusion miR-31-3p, miR-139-5p and miR-30a-5p panel was confirmed as a potential diagnostic biomarker when distinguishing oral cancer from non-cancerous tissue. miR-135b-5p, miR-18a-5p and miR-30a-5p might serve as potential biomarkers of poor survival of oral cancer patients.

AB  - Vaccination is one of the greatest achievements in biomedical research preventing death and morbidity in many infectious diseases through the induction of pathogen-specific humoral and cellular immune responses. Currently, no effective vaccines are available for pathogens with a highly variable antigenic load, such as the human immunodeficiency virus or to induce cellular T-cell immunity in the fight against cancer. The recent SARS-CoV-2 outbreak has reinforced the relevance of designing smart therapeutic vaccine modalities to ensure public health. Indeed, academic and private companies have ongoing joint efforts to develop novel vaccine prototypes for this virus. Many pathogens are covered by a dense glycan-coat, which form an attractive target for vaccine development. Moreover, many tumor types are characterized by altered glycosylation profiles that are known as “tumor-associated carbohydrate antigens”. Unfortunately, glycans do not provoke a vigorous immune response and generally serve as T-cell-independent antigens, not eliciting protective immunoglobulin G responses nor inducing immunological memory. A close and continuous crosstalk between glycochemists and glycoimmunologists is essential for the successful development of efficient immune modulators. It is clear that this is a key point for the discovery of novel approaches, which could significantly improve our understanding of the immune system. In this review, we discuss the latest advancements in development of vaccines against glycan epitopes to gain selective immune responses and to provide an overview on the role of different immunogenic constructs in improving glycovaccine efficacy.

AB  - Objective Cholesteatoma is a challenging chronic pathology of the middle ear for which pharmacologic therapies have not been developed yet. Cholesteatoma occurrence depends on the interplay between genetic and environmental factors while master regulators orchestrating disease progression are still unknown. Therefore, in this review, we will discuss the diagnostic and therapeutic potential of non-coding RNAs (ncRNA) as a new class of regulatory molecules. Methods We have comprehensively reviewed all articles investigating ncRNAs, specifically micro RNAs (miRNAs) and long ncRNAs (lncRNA/circRNA) in cholesteatoma tissue. Results Candidate miRNA approaches indicated that miR-21 and let-7a are the major miRNAs involved in cholesteatoma growth, migration, proliferation, bone destruction, and apoptosis. Regulatory potential for the same biological processes was also observed for miR-203a. The NF-kB/miR-802/PTEN regulatory network was in relation to observed miR-21 activity in cholesteatoma as well. High throughput approaches revealed additional ncRNAs implicated in cholesteatoma pathology. Competitive endogenous RNA (ceRNA) analysis highlighted lncRNA/circRNA that could be “endogenous sponge” for miR-21 and let-7a based on the hypothesis that RNA transcripts can communicate with and regulate each other by using shared miRNA response elements. Conclusion In this review, we summarize the discoveries and role of ncRNA in major pathways in cholesteatoma and highlight the potential of miRNA-based therapeutics in the treatment of cholesteatoma.

AB  - We estimate the parameters of the Hybrid Palatini gravity model with the Schwarzschild precession of S-stars, specifically of the S2, S38 and S55 stars. We also take into account the case of bulk mass distribution near the Galactic Center. We assume that the Schwarzschild orbital precession of mentioned S-stars is the same as in General Relativity (GR) in all studied cases. In 2020, the GRAVITY Collaboration detected the orbital precession of the S2 star around the supermassive black hole (SMBH) at the Galactic Center and showed that it is close to the GR prediction. The astronomical data analysis of S38 and S55 orbits showed that, also in these cases, the orbital precession is close to the GR prediction. Based on this observational fact, we evaluated the parameters of the Hybrid Palatini Gravity model with the Schwarzschild precession of the S2, S38 and S55 stars, and we estimated the range of parameters of the Hybrid Palatini gravity model for which the orbital precession is as in GR for all three stars. We also evaluated the parameters of the Hybrid Palatini Gravity model in the case of different values of bulk mass density distribution of extended matter. We believe that proposed method is a useful tool to evaluate parameters of the gravitational potential at the Galactic Center. © 2022 by the authors. Licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.

AB  - The goal of this paper is to investigate the flux and spectral index distribution of FR II radio galaxy 4C 14.11. We focused on the distribution of flux and spectral indices over the lobes, as well as in their hot spots. For that purpose, we used publicly available observations of this radio galaxy given at 1450 and 8440 MHz. Particularly, we used Leahy’s Atlas of radio-emitting double radio sources, Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics in Manchester, as well as NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database. We found that the non-thermal (synchrotron) radiation dominates over the areas of the lobes. Distinction between hot spots and rest of the lobes are much smaller in the spectral index than in the flux. We also found that over the inner parts of both lobes, spectral index α is flat in average and significantly higher than 1.2, indicating that 4C 14.11 is old AGN.

AB  - We investigate the velocity distribution of elliptical galaxies in the framework of Non-local Gravity. According to this approach, it is possible to recover the fundamental plane of elliptical galaxies without the dark matter hypothesis. Specifically, we compare theoretical predictions for circular velocity in Non-local Gravity context with the corresponding values coming from a large sample of observed elliptical galaxies. We adopt the surface brightness, effective radius and velocity dispersion as structural parameters for the fundamental plane. As final result, it is possible to show that non-local gravity effects can reproduce the stellar dynamics in elliptical galaxies and fit consistently observational data.

According to this approach, it is possible to recover the fundamental plane of elliptical galaxies without the dark matter hypothesis. Specifically, we compare theoretical predictions for circular velocity in Non-local Gravity context with the corresponding values coming from a large sample of observed elliptical galaxies. We adopt the surface brightness, effective radius and velocity dispersion as structural parameters for the fundamental plane. As final result, it is possible to show that non-local gravity effects can reproduce the stellar dynamics in elliptical galaxies and fit consistently observational data.",

AB  - Face masks serve to protect the respiratory system from unwanted aerosol droplets, in which various types of pathogens or pollutants are present. They are particularly important during a pandemic, like SARS-CoV-2 pandemic we are withessing. The efficiency of filtration of aerosol droplets, which contain the virus particles, is generally unsatisfactory, especially in conditions of extremely virulent environments, for the most of commercially available masks. Therefore, the challenge is to produce masks with increased filtration efficiency, in order to reduce the percentage of virus penetration through the mask. Hence, it is crucial to correctly define the possibilities and limitations of today's most commonly used epidemiological masks, in order to successfully define completely new concepts of face masks manufacturing, which would enable the most effective protection not only of medical workers but also patients, especially in areas where virus concentrations are extremely high. Also, it has been shown that, in addition to the concentrations of infectious pathogens in a given environment, the conditions in which infection with a given pathogen occurs, such as temperature and humidity within a given contaminated space, are also important.

AB  - The influence of the structure type on the boron nitride (BN) properties such as excellent thermal and chemical stability and super hardness is well known. The effect of aluminum addition on four different structure types of boron nitride (wurtzite, h-BN, sphalerite, and rock salt) and its electronic properties have been investigated in our study. Here we present an ab initio study of the B1-xAlxN solid solutions for (x ​= ​0; 0.125; 0.25; 0.375 and 0.5), and corresponding structure-property relationship. Novel structures have been discovered in new Al-rich boron nitride compounds and some of them indicate AlN-BN layer separation. Electronic properties have been studied in great detail using hybrid B3LYP approximation. Present results suggest great diversity of the electronic properties generated by adding aluminum to boron nitride and that by using these predicted modifications in various investigated AlN-BN compounds, one could obtain fine-tuning of the band gap in boron nitride electroceramics.

AB  - We report on a new class of ZnO/ZnS nanomaterials based on the wurtzite/sphalerite architecture with improved electronic properties. Semiconducting properties of pristine ZnO and ZnS compounds and mixed ZnO1−xSx nanomaterials have been investigated using ab initio methods. In particular, we present the results of our theoretical investigation on the electronic structure of the ZnO1−xSx (x = 0.20, 0.25, 0.33, 0.50, 0.60, 0.66, and 0.75) nanocrystalline polytypes (2H, 3C, 4H, 5H, 6H, 8H, 9R, 12R, and 15R) calculated using hybrid PBE0 and HSE06 functionals. The main observations are the possibility of alternative polytypic nanomaterials, the effects of structural features of such polytypic nanostructures on semiconducting properties of ZnO/ZnS nanomaterials, the ability to tune the band gap as a function of sulfur content, as well as the influence of the location of sulfur layers in the structure that can dramatically affect electronic properties. Our study opens new fields of ZnO/ZnS band gap engineering on a multi-scale level with possible applications in photovoltaics, light-emitting diodes, laser diodes, heterojunction solar cells, infrared detectors, thermoelectrics, or/and nanostructured ceramics.

AB  - This book chapter provides a comprehensive overview of research on the energy landscapes of zinc oxide (ZnO), one of the most investigated materials, due to its great variety of technological and industrial applications. Thus, not only crystalline and bulk ZnO – both pure and doped – but also ZnO surfaces, monolayers, nanotubes, clusters, cluster-assembled materials, and ZnO nanostructures and nanomaterials in general are of great interest. In order to fully explore the energy landscape of ZnO on all length scales ranging from bulk, layers, and nanotubes to clusters, a broad range of landscape exploration methods has been employed in the literature, including, e.g., global optimisation for structure prediction using empirical potentials, local optimisation at the ab initio level, and the prescribed path algorithm, the threshold algorithm, and metashooting for the study of the barrier structures and transition regions of the landscapes of ZnO. As examples of such landscape investigations, doped and pure crystalline ZnO, as well as ZnO surfaces, clusters, and nanotubes will be discussed.
