Negative thermal expansion near two structural quantum phase transitions Connor
Recent experimental work has revealed that the unusually strong, isotropic structural negative thermal expansion in cubic perovskite ionic insulator ScF3 occurs in excited states above a ground state tuned very near a ...
Exact Solutions of a Chaplygin Gas in an Anisotropic Space-Time of Petrov D
This document obtains two exact solutions to the anisotropic spacetime of Petrov D by using the model of a perfect fluid. These solutions represent a scenario of a universe in which the pressure P and the energetic density ...
A study of a coronal hole associated with a large filament eruption
We report the results of a detailed study of an equatorial coronal hole and a dimming region related to the eruptions of a nearby large filament and subsequent coronal mass ejections (CMEs). The dynamic eruptions of the ...
Exact solution of an ekpyrotic fluid and a primordial magnetic field in an anisotropic cosmological space-time of Petrov D
This document obtained and analyzed an exact solution of an ekpyrotic fluid (P = 5/3 µ) and a primordial magnetic field, so that the latter does not induce currents or electric fields. It is determined that the main role, ...
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 ...
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 ...
