The complex superstructure in Mg1-xAlxB2 at x~0.5Sep 17 2001Electron diffraction and high resolution microscopy have been performed on Mg1-xAlxB2 with x~0.5. This composition displays a superstructure with a repeat period of exactly 2c along the c axis and about 10 nm in the a-b plane. The superstructure results ... More

Development and Application of a Diaphragm Micro-Pump with Piezoelectric DeviceFeb 21 2008In this study, a new type of thin, compact, and light weighed diaphragm micro-pump has been successfully developed to actuate the liquid by the vibration of a diaphragm. The micro-diaphragm pump with two valves is fabricated in an aluminum case by using ... More

Ferromagnetic structures in Mn2CoGa and Mn2CoAl doped by Co, Cu, V, and TiOct 19 2012The structure and magnetic properties in doped Heusler alloys of Mn2CoGa and Mn2CoAl have been investigated by experiments and calculations. The main group elements of Ga and Al are substituted by the magnetic or non-magnetic transition metals, Co, Cu, ... More

Structural transitions, magnetic properties, and electronic structures of Co(Fe)-doped MnNiSi compoundsNov 21 2014The structural transitions, magnetic properties, and electronic structures of Co(Fe)-doped MnNiSi compounds are investigated by x-ray powder diffraction (XRD), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), magnetic measurements, and first-principles calculations. ...

Pressure Effects on the Superconducting and Spin-Density-Wave States of the Newly Discovered Sm(O1-xFx)FeAsApr 10 2008Aug 04 2008High temperature superconductors with a Tc above 40 K have been found to be strongly correlated electron systems and to have a layered structure. Guided by these rules, Kamihara et al. discovered a Tc up to 26 K in the layered La(O1-xFx)FeAs. By replacing ... More

Metamagnetic behavior and effect of field cooling on sharp magnetization jumps in multiferroic Y2CoMnO6Jul 31 2014Oct 13 2014We present sharp magnetization jumps and field induced irreversibility in magnetization in multiferroic Y2CoMnO6. Appearance of magnetic relaxation and field sweep rate dependence of magnetization jumps resemble the martensite like scenario and suggests ... More

A detailed X-ray investigation of PSR J2021+4026 and $γ$-Cygni supernova remnantNov 09 2014We have investigated the field around the radio-quiet $\gamma$-ray pulsar, PSR J2021+4026, with a ~140 ks XMM-Newton observation and a ~56 ks archival Chandra data. Through analyzing the pulsed spectrum, we show that the X-ray pulsation is purely thermal ... More
