Atomic Jump Frequencies in Intermetallic Compounds Studied Using Perturbed Angular Correlation of Gamma Rays
Atomic jump frequencies were determined in a variety of intermetallic compounds through analysis of nuclear relaxation of spectra measured using the nuclear hyperfine technique, perturbed angular correlation (PAC) of gamma ...
EXCIMER LASER INTERACTION WITH ZINC OXIDE
When single crystal ZnO is exposed to 193-nm laser photons in vacuum at fluences below 100 mJ/cm
Experimental investigations of a proposed chromophore correlation model of self healing of Disperse Orange 11 doped in Poly (methyl methacrylate)
We studied photodegradation and recovery of amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) in Disperse Orange 11 dye doped in Poly(methyl methacrylate)(PMMA) as a function of dye concentration and sample temperature. A simple ...
INTRINSIC DEFECTS AND SODIUM ACCEPTORS DOPING IN ZNO
Zinc oxide (ZnO), with a direct band gap of 3.37 eV at room temperature, attracts considerable attention because of its promising applications for blue-UV light-emitting diodes, diode lasers and spintronics.A problem with ...
Photomechanical actuator device based on Disperse Red 1 doped poly(methyl methacrylate) optical fiber
The photomechanical effect is the phenomenon involving any mechanical property change of a material induced by light exposure. Photomechanical devices can be built with superior performance over traditional devices and ...
Manipulating neuronal activity with low frequency transcranial ultrasound
Stimulation of the rodent cerebral cortex is used to investigate the underlying biological basis for the restorative effects of slow wave sleep. Neuronal activation by optogenetic and ultrasound stimulation elicits changes ...
Application-driven studies of photomechanical materials
Deep brain stimulation therapy is a well-established medical procedure with well-documented benefits, but this procedure would be enhanced by a flexible therapy device that could bend when photoactivated. To this end, two ...
Persistant Photoconductivity of Strontium Titanate
Strontium titanate (SrTiO$_3$) is a transparent conducting oxide with a range of interesting properties, including a large, temperature-dependent dielectric constant and superconductivity at low temperatures. It has a wide ...
Electrical and Optoelectronic Properties of Two-Dimensional Materials
Electrical and optoelectronic properties of bulk semiconductor materials have been extensively explored in last century. However, when reduced to one-dimensional and two-dimensional, many semiconductors start to show unique ...
