Suppression of Quantum Phase Interference in Molecular Magnets Fe₈ with Dipolar-Dipolar InteractionJul 30 2002Aug 01 2002Renormalized tunnel splitting with a finite distribution in the biaxial spin model for molecular magnets is obtained by taking into account the dipolar interaction of enviromental spins. Oscillation of the resonant tunnel splitting with a transverse magnetic ... More

Guiding optical flows by photonic crystal slabs made of dielectric cylindersDec 21 2003We investigate the electromagnetic propagation in two-dimensional photonic crystals, formed by parallel dielectric cylinders embedded a uniform medium. The frequency band structure is computed using the standard plane-wave expansion method, while the ... More
