Nuclear Spin Incoherent Neutron Scattering from Quantum Well Resonators

Max Wolff, Anton Devishvili, Joseph A. Dura, Franz A. Adlmann, Brian Kitchen, Gunnar K. Palsson, Heikki Palonen, Brian B. Maranville, Charles F. Majkrzak, Boris P. Toperverg
We report the detection and quantification of nuclear spin incoherent scattering from hydrogen occupying interstitial sites in a thin film of vanadium. The

Highly Reversible Zinc Metal Anode for Aqueous Batteries

Fei Wang, Oleg Borodin, Tao Gao, Xiulin Fan, Wei Sun, Fudong Han, Antonio Faraone, Joseph A. Dura, Kang Xu, Chunsheng Wang
Metallic zinc (Zn) has been regarded as an ideal anode material for aqueous batteries, because of its high theoretical capacity (820 mAh/g), low electrochemical

Perovskite Nickelates as Electric-Field Sensors in Salt Water
