Magnetic anisotropy of FePt: effect of lattice distortion and chemical disorderAug 12 2011We perform first principles calculations of the magnetocrystalline anisotropy energy in the five L10 FePt samples studied experimentally by Ding et al. [J. App. Phys. 97, 10H303 (2005)]. The effect of temperature-induced spin fluctuations is estimated ... More
Spin-torque driven ferromagnetic resonance in a nonlinear regimeOct 24 2009Spin-valve based nanojunctions incorporating Co|Ni multilayers with perpendicular anisotropy were used to study spin-torque driven ferromagnetic resonance (ST-FMR) in a nonlinear regime. Perpendicular field swept resonance lines were measured under a ... More
Finite size effects on spin-torque driven ferromagnetic resonance in spin-valves with a Co/Ni synthetic free layerDec 03 2007Feb 14 2008Spin-torque driven ferromagnetic resonance (ST-FMR) is used to study magnetic excitations in Co/Ni synthetic layers confined in nanojunctions. Field swept ST-FMR measurements were conducted with a magnetic field applied perpendicular to the layer surface. ... More
The FIR-Radio Correlation of Wolf-Rayet Galaxies and the Role of Star Formation in LINERsJan 26 2000We find that a preliminary classification of LINERs' energetics may be made in terms of the FIR-radio correlation of Wolf-Rayet galaxies. The AGN- or starburst-supported LINERs can be distinguished by their FIR-to-radio ratio, $Q\equiv L(1.4{\rm GHz})/$ ... More
The Nature of Superfluidity in Ultracold Fermi Gases Near Feshbach ResonancesSep 12 2003Feb 28 2004We study the superfluid state of atomic Fermi gases using a BCS-BEC crossover theory. Our approach emphasizes non-condensed fermion pairs which strongly hybridize with their (Feshbach-induced) molecular boson counterparts. These pairs lead to pseudogap ... More
Optical spectroscopy and ultrafast pump-probe studies on the heavy fermion compound CePt$_2$In$_7$Mar 21 2016We report optical spectroscopy and ultrafast pump-probe measurements on the antiferromagnetic heavy fermion compound CePt$_2$In$_7$, a member showing stronger two dimensionality than other compounds in CeIn$_3$-derived heavy-fermion family. We identify ... More
Entropy variation rate divided by temperature always decreasesOct 20 2014Oct 21 2014For an isolated assembly that comprises a system and its surrounding reservoirs, the total entropy ($S_{a}$) always monotonically increases as time elapses. This phenomenon is known as the second law of thermodynamics ($S_{a}\geq0$). Here we analytically ... More
Theoretical studies of the local structures and EPR parameters for Cu$^{2+}$ center in Cd$_{2}$(NH$_{4}$)$_{2}$(SO$_{4}$)$_{3}$ single crystalDec 24 2015The electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) parameters ($g$ factors $g_{i}$ and the hyperfine structure constants ${{A}}_{{i}}$, ${i} = {x}, {y}, {z}$) are interpreted by using the perturbation formulae for a $3{d}^{9}$ ion in rhombically ({D}$_{2h}$) elongated ...

Wave modelling in a cylindrical non-uniform helicon dischargeMay 16 2012A radio frequency (RF) field solver based on Maxwell's equations and a cold plasma dielectric tensor is em- ployed to describe wave phenomena observed in a cylindrical non-uniform helicon discharge. The experiment is carried out on a recently built linear ... More
Anomalous critical behavior near the quantum critical point of a hole-doped La2CuO4Aug 25 2004The Landau-Ginzburg-Wilson paradigm for critical phenomena is spectacularly successful whenever the critical temperature is finite and all fluctuation modes, with characteristic energies much smaller than the thermal energy, obey classical statistics. ...

Start-to-end simulation of the injector for a compact THz sourceOct 29 2013Terahertz radiation has broad application prospect due to its ability to penetrate deep into many organic materials without damage caused by ionizing radiations. A FEL-based THz source is the best choice to produce high-power radiation. In this paper, ... More
Geometric phases for non-degenerate and degenerate mixed statesApr 10 2003This paper focuses on the geometric phase of general mixed states under unitary evolution. Here we analyze both non-degenerate as well as degenerate states. Starting with the non-degenerate case, we show that the usual procedure of subtracting the dynamical ... More
Coherently photo-induced ferromagnetism in diluted magnetic semiconductorsDec 18 2003Ferromagnetism is predicted in undoped diluted magnetic semiconductors illuminated by intense sub-bandgap laser radiation . The mechanism for photo-induced ferromagnetism is coherence between conduction and valence bands induced by the light which leads ... More
