On Iwasawa Theory over Function FieldsJan 02 2007Let $k_{\infty}$ be a $\Z_p^d$-extension of a global function field $k$ of characteristic $p$. Let $\Cl_{k_{\infty},p}$ be the $p$ completion of the class group of $k_{\infty}$. We prove that the characteristic ideal of the Galois module $\Cl_{k_{\infty},p}$ ... More
Reversible Superconductivity in Electrochromic Indium-Tin Oxide FilmsMar 21 2012Oct 09 2012Transparent conductive indium tin oxide (ITO) thin films, electrochemically intercalated with sodium or other cations, show tunable superconducting transitions with a maximum $T_c$ at 5 K. The transition temperature and the density of states, $D(E_F)$ ... More
Modeling Deployment Decisions for Elastic Services with ABSOct 26 2016The use of cloud technology can offer significant savings for the deployment of services, provided that the service is able to make efficient use of the available virtual resources to meet service-level requirements. To avoid software designs that scale ... More
Young, UV-bright Stars Dominate Dust Heating in Star Forming GalaxiesJun 10 2011In star forming galaxies, dust plays a significant role in shaping the ultraviolet (UV) through infrared (IR) spectrum. Dust attenuates the radiation from stars, and re-radiates the energy through equilibrium and non-equilibrium emission. Polycyclic aromatic ... More
Geometric phase of a central spin coupled to an antiferromagnetic environmentMar 05 2010Using the spin-wave approximation, we study the geometric phase (GP) of a central spin (signal qubit) coupled to an antiferromagnetic (AF) environment under the application of an external global magnetic field. The external magnetic field affects the ... More
