Stochastic approach to the smart quantum confinement model in porous silicon
(Surface Science 515 (2002) L509-L513, 2002)
A model that encompasses two approaches to explain the photoluminescence in p-type porous silicon is proposed. The model considers a stochastic distribution of nanocrystallite sizes within the porous matrix and explain the ...
Pressure dependence of ferroelectric quantum critical fluctuation
Phase transitions to a long-range-ordered state driven by a softened phonon mode are ubiquitous across condensed matter physics, but the evolution of such a mode as the system is tuned to or from the transition has never ...
Quantum Ferroelectric Instabilities in Superconducting SrTiO3
We examine the effects of strain and cation substitution on the superconducting phase of polar semiconductors near a ferroelectric quantum phase transition with a model that combines a strong coupling theory of ...
Do Magnetic Fields Destroy Black Hole Accretion Disk g-Modes?
Diskoseismology, the theoretical study of normal-mode oscillations in geometrically thin, optically thick accretion disks, is a strong candidate for explaining some quasi-periodic oscillations in the power spectra of many ...
Relation between Luminescence and Electronic Surface Characteristics in p-type Porous Silicon
Measurements of photoluminescence, electronic surface states and effective surface area, at various stages of the anodization process, are presented. The results show a behavior different from that observed on n-type porous Si.
Vacuum treatment to stabilize oxidation at low temperature region in porous silicon
Oxidation in porous silicon is studied for as-etched samples and samples subjected to high vacuum at room temperature. Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR) measurements in infrared spectroscopy for temperatures ranging from ...
Phototransport Properties of a-SiC:H Alloys
We report a study of the mobility-lifetime products of the two charge carriers in a-SiC:H alloys. The measurements were carried out as a function of the carbon concentration and the temperature. An analysis, relying on the ...
Cooperative elastic fluctuations provide tuning of the metal-insulator transition
Metal-to-insulator transitions driven by strong electronic correlations occur frequently in condensed matter systems, and are associated with remarkable collective phenomena in solids, including superconductivity and ...
Study of oxide bands in p-type porous silicon layers
The interest in developing fast and reliable chemical and biochemical sensors in an inexpensive way is something that has attracted a lot of efforts in the last decades. One of the potential material candidates is ...
