A weak temperature dependence was observed in the Knight shift at the O site ... More

Nucleosynthesis in Type II supernovae and the abundances in metal-poor starsSep 24 1998Dec 15 1998We explore the effects on nucleosynthesis in Type II supernovae of various parameters (mass cut, neutron excess, explosion energy, progenitor mass) in order to explain the observed trends of the iron-peak element abundance ratios ([Cr/Fe], [Mn/Fe], [Co/Fe] ...

Can differences in the nickel abundance in Chandrasekhar mass models explain the relation between brightness and decline rate of normal Type Ia Supernovae?Sep 29 2000The use of Type Ia supernovae as distance indicators relies on the determination of their brightness. This is not constant, but it can be calibrated using an observed relation between the brightness and the properties of the optical light curve (decline ... More

Atomically-flat, chemically-stable, superconducting epitaxial thin film of iron-based superconductor, cobalt-doped BaFe$_2$As$_2$Jul 03 2009Epitaxial growth of Fe-based superconductors such as Co-doped SrFe$_2$As$_2$ (SrFe$_2$As$_2$:Co) was reported recently, but has still insufficient properties for device application because they have rough surfaces and are decomposed by reactions with ...

Pseudo-perturbation-based Broadcast Control of Multi-agent SystemsMay 20 2018Jul 31 2018The present paper proposes a novel broadcast control (BC) law for multi-agent coordination. A BC framework has been developed to achieve global coordination tasks with low communication volume. The BC law uses broadcast communication, which transmits ... More

Anisotropic pressure effects on superconductivity in Fe1+yTe1-xSxMar 02 2018Mar 22 2018We have investigated uniaxial and hydrostatic pressure effects on superconductivity in Fe1.07Te0.88S0.12 through magnetic-susceptibility measurements down to 1.8 K. The superconducting transition temperature Tc is enhanced by out-of-plane pressure (uniaxial ... More
