Time-Integrated Evidence for Superfluorescence from Dense Electron-Hole Magneto-Plasmas in Semiconductor Quantum WellsJul 02 2006Jul 28 2009Cooperative spontaneous recombination (superfluorescence) of electron-hole plasmas in semiconductors has been a challenge to observe due to ultrafast decoherence. We argue that superfluorescence can be achieved in quantum-confined semiconductor systems ... More

Fine-Tuning of Magnetic Interactions in Organic Spin LaddersFeb 12 2014We have succeeded in synthesizing two types of new organic radical crystals 3-I-V [= 3- (3-iodophenyl)-1,5-diphenylverdazyl] and 3-Br-4-F-V [= 3-(3-bromo-4-fluorophenyl)-1,5- diphenylverdazyl]. Their crystal strucutures are found to be isomorphous to ... More
