  • Understanding domain wall pinning centers and the resultant mobility of ferroic (ferromagnetic and ferroelastic) walls under an applied magnetic field is of central importance to actuator applications of magnetic shape memory alloys. The movement of ferroic boundaries in a twinned Fe-Pd-Co martensite was analyzed by means of Lorentz mode transmission electron microscopy. An in situ magnetizing sample-holder was used to record the evolution of the magnetic domain structure as a function of the applied field. Fresnel images were recorded at different field values and a phase reconstruction algorithm was used to map the magnetization configuration inside the foil. The motionmore » of magnetic domain walls was found to be strongly influenced by the presence of twin boundaries. Free-standing domain walls became mobile at fields as low as 15 Oe, whereas an order of magnitude higher field was required to depin domain walls that coincided with twin boundaries. The domain wall motion was completely reversible with a notable hysteresis.« less
  • Off-axis electron holography has been used to characterise the dopant potential in GaAs p-n junctions. We show that the measured potential across the junctions is affected by both FIB specimen preparation and by charging in the TEM and suggest methods that can be used to minimise these problems.
  • 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
