Streaming Batch Eigenupdates for Hardware Neural Networks

Brian D. Hoskins, Matthew W. Daniels, Siyuan Huang, Advait Madhavan, Gina C. Adam, Nikolai B. Zhitenev, Jabez J. McClelland, Mark D. Stiles
Neuromorphic networks based on nanodevices, such as metal oxide memristors, phase change memories, and flash memory cells, have generated considerable interest

Direct-write Lithiation of Silicon Using a Focused Ion Beam of Li+

William R. McGehee, Evgheni Strelcov, Vladimir P. Oleshko, Christopher L. Soles, Nikolai B. Zhitenev, Jabez J. McClelland
Electrochemical processes that govern the performance of lithium ion batteries involve numerous parallel reactions and interfacial phenomena that complicate the

Interaction-driven quantum Hall wedding cake-like structures in graphene quantum dots

Christopher Gutierrez, Daniel T. Walkup, Fereshte Ghahari Kermani, Cyprian Lewandowski, Joaquin R. Nieva, Kenji Watanabe, Takashi Taniguchi, Leonid Levitov, Nikolai B. Zhitenev, Joseph A. Stroscio
Interactions amongst relativistic particles underpin exotic behaviours in diverse systems ranging from quark-gluon plasmas to Dirac electron fluids in solids

Nanoscale photocurrent mapping in perovskite solar cells

Yohan Yoon, Dongheon Ha, Ik Jae Park, Paul M. Haney, Sangwook Lee, Nikolai B. Zhitenev
In this work, we study spatially-resolved generation of photocurrent of methylammonium lead iodide (CH3NH3PbI3) perovskite solar cells to reveal the microscopic

Paper in electronic and optoelectronic devices

Dongheon Ha, Zhiqiang Fang, Nikolai B. Zhitenev
The demand for lightweight, cost-effective, and/or flexible electronic and optoelectronic devices drives research toward new materials advancing the desired

Local measurements of photocurrent and band gap in CdTe solar cells

Yohan Yoon, Jungseok Chae, Aaron M. Katzenmeyer, Heayoung Yoon, Joshua D. Schumacher, Sang M. An, Andrea Centrone, Nikolai B. Zhitenev
Polycrystalline thin film technology has shown great promise for low cost, high efficiency photovoltaics. To further increase the power efficiency, a firm

Strain engineering a 4a×√3a charge-density-wave phase in transition-metal dichalcogenide 1T−VSe2

Duming Zhang, Jeonghoon Ha, Hongwoo H. Baek, Yang-Hao Chan, Donat F. Natterer, Alline F. Myers, Joshua D. Schumacher, William G. Cullen, Albert Davydov, Young Kuk, Mei-Yin Chou, Nikolai B. Zhitenev, Joseph A. Stroscio
We report a new charge density wave (CDW) structure in strained 1T-VSe2 thin films synthesized by molecular beam epitaxy. The CDW structure is unconventional

An On/Off Berry Phase Switching with Circular Graphene Resonators

Fereshte Ghahari Kermani, Daniel T. Walkup, Christopher Gutierrez, Joaquin R. Nieva, Yue Y. Zhao, Jonathan E. Wyrick, Donat F. Natterer, William G. Cullen, Kenji Watanabe, Takashi Taniguchi, Leonid Levitov, Nikolai B. Zhitenev, Joseph A. Stroscio
Berry phase is an example of anholonomy, where the phase of a quantum state may not return to its original value after its parameters cycle around a closed path

Creating Nanostructured Superconductors by Local Current Annealing

Hongwoo H. Baek, Jeonghoon Ha, Duming Zhang, Bharath NMN Natarajan, Jonathan P. Winterstein, Renu Sharma, Rongwei Hu, Kefeng Wang, Steven Ziemak, Johnpierre Paglione, Young Kuk, Nikolai B. Zhitenev, Joseph A. Stroscio
Superconductivity results from a Bose condensate of Cooper-paired electrons with a macroscopic quantum wavefunction. Dramatic effects can occur when the region

Electron beam induced current in the high injection regime

Paul M. Haney, Heayoung Yoon, Prakash Koirala, Robert W. Collins, Nikolai B. Zhitenev
Electron beam induced current (EBIC) is a powerful technique which measures the charge collection efficiency of photovoltaics with sub-micron spatial resolution
