      The front cover image of this issue shows the “Fireball” – an artistic ball and stick view (by Daniel G. Trabada) of the β-SiC(100) surface. The background alludes to the firstprinciples molecular-dynamics technique FIREBALL (see the Review Article by James P. Lewis et al. on pp. 1989–2007): The “fireball” orbitals used in this computational approach are obtained from atomic calculations in which the orbitals are confined within a given cut-off radius. The effect of this confinement is to increase the energy of the atoms, depicted here as microscopic “balls of fire”. The FIREBALL method is based on the Sankey–Niklewski approach, one of the outstanding advancements in electronic structure density-functional methods. Lewis et al. report on several improved theoretical developments and recent application to a variety of systems ranging from biomolecules to semiconductors. The review and 12 more articles in this issue compose the special section “Large-scale simulations in materials science”, dedicated to Otto F. Sankey (see pp. 1987–1988).

    1. Back Cover: Simulating the organic-molecule/metal interface TCNQ/Au(111) (Phys. Status Solidi B 9/2011)

      José I. Martínez, Enrique Abad, Fernando Flores and José Ortega

      Article first published online: 25 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/pssb.201190028

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The growing market of organic electronics relies on the use of organic conjugated molecules as components of multilayer devices, whose performance depends critically on the energy barriers that control the carrier transport between layers, and the electronic transport in a nanocontact between a single molecule and metal electrodes. As shown by José I. Martínez et al. (pp. 2044–2049), theoretical STM imaging arises as a powerful tool in this novel researching field, validating the obtained interfacial geometries compared with the experimental STM for the TCNQ/Au(111) self-assembled structure, as well as the complementary electronic structure analysis.
