21. Ultrafast Demagnetization Measurements using Extreme Ultraviolet Light: Comparison of Electronic and Magnetic Contributions
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 1/23/2012
Authors: Thomas J Silva, Justin M Shaw, Hans Toya Nembach, Margaret M. Murnane, Henry C. Kapteyn, Chan La-O-Vorakiat, Stefan Mathias, Emrah Turgut, Teale A. Carson, Martin Aeschlimann, Claus M. Schneider
Abstract: Ultrashort pulses of extreme ultraviolet light from high-harmonic generation are a new tool for probing coupled charge, spin, and phonon dynamics with element specificity, attosecond pump-probe synchronization, and time resolution of a few-femtosecon ...

22. Andreev Reflections in Micrometer-Scale Normal Metal-Insulator-Superconductor Tunnel Junctions
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 11/24/2011
Authors: Peter J Lowell, Galen C O\'Neil, Jason M Underwood, Joel Nathan Ullom
Abstract: Understanding the subgap behavior of Normal-Insulator-Superconductor (NIS) tunnel junctions is important in order to be able to accurately model the thermal properties of the junctions. Hekking and Nazarov developed a theory in which the NIS sub gap ...

Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 6/1/2011
Authors: Joshua M Pomeroy, Russell Lake, C E Sosolik
Abstract: The electrical conductance of magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ) devices whose ultra-thin aluminum oxide tunnel barrier was irradiated by highly charged ions (HCIs) increases linearly with the fluence of HCIs, while retaining a current-voltage relationsh ...

24. Perspective on Probing Metallic Ferromagnetism with Electrons
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 3/21/2011
Author: Daniel Thornton Pierce
Abstract: This article presents a brief review of some of the many insights gained about metallic ferromagnetism using spin-polarized electrons as probes. Aspects of metallic ferromagnetism discussed include spin-dependent electronic structure, spin-dependent ...

25. Thermo-Magneto-Electrical Measurement Platform
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 10/19/2010
Authors: Kurt Pernstich, Curt A Richter, David J Gundlach

26. The Cooper Pair Transistor
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 9/17/2010
Author: Jose Alberto Aumentado
Abstract: The Cooper pair transistor (CPT) is a superconducting electrometer that has applications in quantum information as well as fundamental superconductivity studies. Since it operates in a near-dissipationless mode, it has potential as a minimally inva ...

27. Effects of Edge Magnetism and External Electric Field on Energy Gaps in Multilayer Graphene Nanoribbons
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
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 ...

28. Band Structure of ABC-Stacked Graphene Trilayers
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
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 ...

29. Effects of disorder and internal dynamics on vortex wall propagation
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
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 ...

30. Interference of Single Photons from Two Separate Semiconductor Quantum Dots
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 4/1/2010
Authors: Edward B. (Edward) Flagg, Andreas Muller, Sergey V Polyakov, Alexander E. Ling, Glenn Scott Solomon
Abstract: We demonstrate and characterize interference between discrete photons emitted by two separate semiconductor quantum dot states in different samples excited by a pulsed laser. Their energies are tuned into resonance using strain. The photons hav ...
