  • Understanding of correlation between magnetic domain structure and functional properties is of importance for the magnetic field driven phase transition (e.g., martensitic transformation) or microstructure variation (e.g., twin boundary motion) materials. In this work, we report a Fe-29.5 at. %Pd shape memory alloy treated by undercooling processing upon a degree of 320 K below the liquid temperature. The effect of high undercooling on the solidified microstructure and martensitic transformation temperatures was investigated. By in-situ Lorentz transmission electron microscopy and electron holography, magnetic domain structure and the field-induced domain wall motion behavior in as-cast and undercooled samples have been schematically studied. Themore » irregular domain structure can be observed in these alloys. On the application of a field up to 300 Oe, the domain walls for both samples are able to move along the direction of the external magnetic field, but structural transition and rearrangement of variants are not observed in the undercooled alloy. The large magnetostriction of Fe-29.5 at. %Pd undercooled alloy originates from the irregular domain walls motion instead of the rearrangement of martensitic twin variants.« less
  • Fully encapsulated face-centered-cubic (fcc) Co nanorods in multiwalled carbon nanotubes were produced by microwave plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition. Quantitative magnetization measurements of the Co nanorods were carried out by off-axis electron holography using a theoretical cylindrical model. The component of magnetic induction was then measured to be 1.2{+-}0.1 T, which is lower than the expected saturation magnetization of fcc Co of 1.7 T. The reason for the reduced magnetic component was discussed.
  • Magnetization and Moessbauer data suggest that a magnetically anomalous region exists within finely divided CoFe/sub 2/O/sub 4/ particles when coated with oleic acid. We have undertaken an x-ray and a polarized neutron powder diffraction study of these samples with and without the surfactant coating in an attempt to locate and characterize this anomalous zone. The shape of neutron scans of the (4,0,0) reflection are independent of polarization indicating that the reflecting crystallites are uniformly magnetized. Magnetization calculated from the peak flipping ratio is characteristic of uncoated rather than coated particles in both cases. Scan widths of both x-rays and neutronsmore » are narrower for the sample from which the chemisorbed surfactant has been largely removed indicating an increase in the size of the coherent lattice of a crystallite. These observations are consistent with the existence of a highly strained surface layer roughly 10 Angstroms thick characterized by pinned spins associated with the presence of oleic acid, which relaxes to a more normal lattice structure upon boiling off the surfactant.« less
  • Individual vortices in superconductors are directly observed with our holography electron microscope. Vortices cannot be viewed as an electron micrograph, but only as a holographic interference micrograph or a defocused micrograph (Lorentz micrograph), since vortices are phase objects to the illumination electron beam. Since the flux itself, and not its replica, is detected, even the dynamic behavior can be observed. The dynamics of vortices in a Nb thin film can be observed in real time when the sample conditions, such as the temperature or the applied magnetic field, change. 6 refs., 5 figs.
