Polarization Relaxation Induced by Depolarization Field in Ultrathin Ferroelectric BaTiO$_3$ CapacitorsJun 20 2005Oct 14 2005Time-dependent polarization relaxation behaviors induced by a depolarization field $E_{d}$ were investigated on high-quality ultrathin SrRuO$_{3}$/BaTiO$_{3}$/SrRuO$_{3}$ capacitors. The $E_d$ values were determined experimentally from an applied external ... More

Single-filament Composite MgB2/SUS Ribbons by Powder-In-Tube ProcessJun 07 2001We report the successful fabrication of single-filament composite MgB2/SUS ribbons, as an ultra-robust conductor type, employing the powder-in-tube (PIT) process, by swaging and cold rolling only. The remarkable transport critical current (Ic) of the ... More

Epitaxial growth of multiferroic Pb(Zr0.57Ti0.43)O3-Pb(Fe2/3W1/3)O3 solid-solution thin films and their magnetoelectric effectsJan 27 2010We report on epitaxial growth of single-phase [Pb(Zr0.57Ti0.43)O3]0.8[Pb(Fe2/3W1/3)O3]0.2 (PZT-PFW) solid-solution thin films using pulsed laser deposition. X-ray diffraction measurements reveal that the films have a tetragonal structure. The films exhibit ... More

Vortex lattice disorder in YBCO probed using Beta-NMRMar 05 2010Beta-NMR has been used to study vortex lattice disorder near the surface of the high-Tc superconductor YBCO. The magnetic field distribution from the vortex lattice was detected by implanting a low energy beam of highly polarized 8Li into a thin overlayer ... More

Transport and anisotropy in single-crystalline SrFe$_2$As$_2$ and $A_{0.6}$K$_{0.4}$Fe$_2$As$_2$ ($A$ = Sr, Ba) superconductorsJun 16 2008Nov 21 2008We have successfully grown high quality single crystals of SrFe$_2$As$_2$ and A$_{0.6}$K$_{0.4}$Fe$_2$As$_2$(A=Sr, Ba) using flux method. The resistivity, specific heat and Hall coefficient have been measured. For parent compound SrFe$_2$As$_2$, an anisotropic ... More
