Partial inertia induces additional phase transition in the explosive majority vote modelJun 22 2017Sep 13 2017Recently it has been aroused a great interest about explosive (i.e., discontinuous) transitions. They manifest in distinct systems, such as synchronization in coupled oscillators, percolation regime, absorbing phase transitions and more recently, in the ... More

The AdS/CFT relation, quasi-normal modes and applicationsFeb 25 2013Here we present a fast review of some of developments and new results concerning applications of gravity in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence, in brane world perturbations as well as in holographic superconductors. We also discuss the structure ... More

The Resistive-WELL detector: a compact spark-protected single amplification-stage MPGDNov 10 2014In this work we present a novel idea for a compact spark-protected single amplification stage Micro-Pattern Gas Detector (MPGD). The detector amplification stage, realized with a structure very similar to a GEM foil, is embedded through a resistive layer ... More

Electroluminescence on-off ratio control of n-i-n GaAs/AlGaAs-based resonant tunneling structuresJun 18 2018We explore the nature of the electroluminescence (EL) emission of purely n-doped GaAs/AlGaAs resonant tunneling diodes (RTDs) and the EL evolution with voltage. A singular feature of such a device is unveiled when the electrical output current changes ... More

Superconductivity in the vicinity of a ferroelectric quantum phase transitionJan 24 2018Feb 06 2018Superconductivity has been observed in doped SrTiO$_3$ at charge-carrier densities below 10$^{18}$ cm$^{-3}$, where the density of states at the Fermi level of the itinerant electrons is several orders of magnitude lower than that of conventional metals. ...
