1. 99.996% 12C films enriched and deposited in situ
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 6/28/2013
Authors: Kevin Joseph Dwyer, Joshua M Pomeroy, David S Simons
Abstract: A mass selected ion beam system is used to isotopically enrich and deposit thin films, which are measured to be 99.9961(4)% 12C. In solid state quantum information, isotopic enrichment of materials has allowed significant improvements in the coheren ...

2. 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 ...

3. Anisotropic frequency response of spin-torque oscillators with applied field polarity and direction
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 9/4/2012
Authors: Matthew R Pufall, William H Rippard, Stephen E Russek, Eric Raymond Evarts
Abstract: We have measured spin-torque-driven oscillations of Ni80Fe20 free-layer nanocontacts as a function of field direction. For a given field axis angle (10◦ from the surface normal) and magnitude, simply changing the field polarity can significantl ...

4. 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 ...

5. Characterization of Soluble Anthradithiophene Derivatives
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 3/18/2010
Authors: Brad Conrad, Calvin Chan, Marsha A. Loth, John E Anthony, David J Gundlach
Abstract: We will discuss the growth and electrical measurements of a newly developed, partially fluorinated anthradithiophene (F-ADT) derivative with tert-butyldiphenylsilyl (TBDMS) side groups. Single crystals of the material can be readily grown and device ...

6. Controlling the Competition between Optically Induced Ultrafast Spin-Flip Scattering and Spin Transport in Magnetic Multilayers
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 5/7/2013
Authors: Justin M Shaw, Hans Toya Nembach, Thomas J Silva, Margaret M. Murnane, Henry C. Kapteyn, Martin Aeschlimann, Claus M. Schneider, Emrah Turgut, Stefan Mathias, Patrik Grychtol, Chan La-O-Vorakiat, Dennis Rudolf, Roman Adam
Abstract: The study of ultrafast dynamics in magnetic materials provides rich opportunities for greater fundamental understanding of correlated phenomena in solid-state matter, because many of the basic microscopic mechanisms involved are as-yet unclear and ar ...

7. Controlling the electronic structure of graphene using surface-adsorbate interactions
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
Published: 7/21/2015
Authors: Piotr Matyba, Adra V. Carr, Cong Chen, David L. Miller, Thomas Orlando, Stefan Mathias, Mark W Keller, Henry C. Kapteyn, Margaret M. Murnane
Abstract: Hybridization of atomic orbitals in graphene on Ni(111) opens up a large energy gap of ≈2.8 eV between nonhybridized states at the K point. Here we use alkali-metal adsorbate to reduce and even eliminate this energy gap, and also identify a new ...

8. 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 ...

9. 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 ...

10. Effects of magnetism and electric field on the energy gap of bilayer graphene nanoflakes
Topic: Condensed Matter Physics
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 ...
