1. Band Structure of ABC-Stacked Graphene Trilayers
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 7/9/2010
Authors: Fan Zhang, Bhagawan Sahu, Hongki Min, Allan H. MacDonald
Abstract: The ABC-stacked N-layer-graphene family of two-dimensional electron systems is described at low energies by two remarkably flat bands with Bloch states that have strongly momentum-dependent phase differences between carbon \pi-orbital amplitudes on ...

2. Characterizing Equilibrium in Epitaxial Growth
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 2/20/2012
Authors: Paul Nathan Patrone, Russel Caflisch, Dionisios Margetis
Abstract: Using a kinetic model of epitaxial growth, we describe how geometry controls kinetic pathways through which external deposition influences the state of a vicinal surface. The state of the surface is determined by three key, adjustable parameters: th ...

3. Correlation of anomalous write error rate and ferromagnetic resonance spectrum in spin-transfer-torque-magnetic-random-access-memory devices containing in-plane free layers
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 5/28/2014
Authors: Eric R Evarts, Ranko Heindl, William H Rippard, Matthew R Pufall
Abstract: In a small fraction of magnetic-tunnel-junction-based MRAM devices with in-plane free layers, the write error rates (WERs) are higher than expected on the basis of the macrospin or quasi-uniform magnetization reversal models. In devices with increase ...

4. Effect of elastic deformation on frictional properties of few-layer graphene
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 1/9/2012
Authors: Alexander Y. Smolyanitsky, Jason Philip Killgore, Vinod K Tewary
Abstract: We describe the results of Brownian dynamics (BD) simulations of an AFM tip scanned on locally suspended few-layer graphene. The effects of surface compliance and sample relaxation are directly related to the observed friction force. We demonstrate t ...

5. Effects of Edge Magnetism and External Electric Field on Energy Gaps in Multilayer Graphene Nanoribbons
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 9/14/2010
Authors: Bhagawan Sahu, Hongki Min, Sanjay K Banerjee
Abstract: Using a first principles density functional theory, we study electronic structure of multilayer graphene nanoribbons as a function of the ribbon widths and an external electric fields. We consider two types of edges (armchair and zigzag) and each wit ...

6. Effects of disorder and internal dynamics on vortex wall propagation
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 5/26/2010
Authors: Hongki Min, Robert D McMichael, Michael J Donahue, Jacques Miltat, Mark D Stiles
Abstract: Experimental measurements of domain wall propagation are typically interpreted by comparison to ideal models that ignore the effects of extrinsic disorder and the internal dynamics of domain wall structures. Using micromagnetic simulations we study v ...

7. Effects of magnetism and electric field on the energy gap of bilayer graphene nanoflakes
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 1/13/2010
Author: Hongki Min
Abstract: We study the effect of magnetism and perpendicular external electric field strengths on the energy gap of length confined bilayer graphene nanoribbons (or nanobars) using a first principles density functional electronic structure method and a semi-lo ...

8. Electromagnetic Energy Density in Dispersive and Dissipative Media
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 6/1/2011
Authors: Frederico D. Nunes, Thiago Vasconcelos, Marcel Bezerra, John Weiner
Abstract: The description of the energy density associated with an electromagnetic field propagating through matter must treat two different phenomena: dispersion, the variation of the refractive index with frequency, and dissipation, the loss of field energy ...

9. Enhanced coupling between light and surface plasmons by nanostructured Fabry-Pérot resonator
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 9/26/2011
Authors: Brian S. Dennis, Vladimir A Aksyuk, Michael Haftel, Stefan T. Koev, Girsh Blumberg
Abstract: It is recognized that surface plasmons (SPs),which can be present on particulate, smooth, or corrugated metallic surfaces, have enormous potential in the fields of novel nano-optical and opto-electronic devices, as well as in spectroscopic, biologic ...

10. Hybrid gap modes induced by fiber taper waveguides: application in spectroscopy of single solid-state emitters deposited on thin films.
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 5/24/2010
Authors: Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Kartik A Srinivasan
Abstract: We show, via simulations, that an optical fiber taper waveguide may be an efficient spectroscopy tool for single emitters, such as single molecules or colloidal quantum dots, deposited on the surface of a thin dielectric membrane. The fiber-membra ...
