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 ...
Pressure-Induced Phase Transitions of Indium Selenide
In2Se3 has potential as a phase-change material for memory applications. Understand- ing its phase diagram is important to achieve controlled switching between phases. Pressure-dependent phase transitions of In2Se3 bulk ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
CHARACTERIZATION OF SECONDARY PHASES IN Cd0.9Zn0.1Te DETECTOR GRADE SEMICONDUCTOR BY IR TRANSMISSION MICROSCOPE AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AMPOULE ROTATION TECHNIQUE IN MODIFIED VERTICAL BRIDGMAN GROWTH TO MINIMIZE THE SECONDARY PHASES
Presence of secondary phases (precipitates/inclusions) in cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) crystals degrades the performance of the materials as radiation detectors. The infrared (IR) transmission microscope was used to quantify ...
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 ...
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 ...
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
