  • The physical nature of electronic processes in oxide glassy semiconductors (OGS) based on V/sub 2/O/sub 5/ is discussed on the basis of the theory of the small-radius polaron (SRP). The most important parameters of the process of charge transfer by polarons are determined from an analysis of the temperature dependence of the static conductivity by mathematical modeling employing general theoretical expressions. A model of coupled SRP, presuming that they are localized by the Coulomb field of the charged defect centers, is proposed for describing the complex of data on the effects of a strong electric field and dielectric relaxation. Onmore » the basis of the model expressions describing the dependence of the current density and dielectric constant on the dc electric field strength and also a relation determining the dielectric relaxation time for the given model are obtained. The results of studies of the electric properties of OGS, modified by additions of a second transition-metal oxide, are discussed also.« less
  • Here, we present the low temperature magnetic behaviour of epitaxial La{sub 0.7}Ca{sub 0.3}Mn{sub 0.85}Al{sub 0.15}O{sub 3} (LCMAO) thin film through a series of DC magnetic measurements. Overall behaviour inferred from the magnetization measurements indicate that the magnetic phases created due to Al doping induced inhomogeneous distribution of Mn{sup 3+} and Mn{sup 4+} ions and oxygen vacancies present in the system act like superspins, and the strong interaction among themselves results in the superspin glassy behaviour. Interactions among the superspins are marked by the aging and zero filed memory effects. The glassy magnetic phase in LCMAO is found to follow themore » hierarchical model of spin glasses.« less
  • In this paper, we present measurements of He + and He +2 ion-induced sputtering of an anorthite-like thin film at a fixed solar wind-relevant impact energy of ~0.5 keV/amu using a quartz crystal microbalance approach (QCM) for determination of total absolute sputtering yields. He +2 ions are the most abundant multicharged ions in the solar wind, and increased sputtering by these ions in comparison to equivelocity He + ions is expected to have the biggest effect on the overall sputtering efficiency of solar wind impact on the Moon. These measurements indicate an almost 70% increase of the sputtering yield formore » doubly charged incident He ions compared to that for same velocity He + impact (14.6 amu/ion for He +2 vs. 8.7 amu/ion for He+). Using a selective sputtering model, the new QCM results presented here, together with previously published results for Ar +q ions and SRIM results for the relevant kinetic-sputtering yields, the effect due to multicharged-solar-wind-ion impact on local near-surface modification of lunar anorthite-like soil is explored. It is shown that the multicharged-solar-wind component leads to a more pronounced and significant differentiation of depleted and enriched surface elements as well as a shortening of the timescale over which such surface-compositional modifications might occur in astrophysical settings. Additionally, to validate previous and future determinations of multicharged-ion-induced sputtering enhancement for those cases where the QCM approach cannot be used, relative quadrupole mass spectrometry (QMS)-based measurements are presented for the same anorthite-like thin film as were investigated by QCM, and their suitability and limitations for charge state-enhanced yield measurements are discussed.« less
  • Practical multilayers devices usually have some in-built imperfections that adversely affect their properties. An analysis of the diffraction properties of a multilayer, and its comparison with the results obtained from a theoretical model of a multilayer with imperfections, can given information about the type and magnitude of imperfections in the multilayer. This information can then be used to make multilayers with better characteristics. 10 references.
