  • We studied organic resistive memory devices with interfacial oxide layers, the thickness of which depended on O{sub 2} plasma treatment time. The different interfacial oxide thicknesses sequentially changed the ON and OFF states of the final memory devices. We found that the memory devices that had undergone additional plasma treatment showed higher ON/OFF ratios than devices without the treatment, which was due to the relatively large OFF resistance values. However, a long oxidation process widened the threshold voltage distribution and degraded the switching reproducibility. This indicates that the oxidation process should be carefully optimized to provide practical high-performance organic memory.
  • We demonstrate that the interfacial hole injection barrier {Delta}{sub h} between p-type organic materials (i.e., CuPc and pentacene) and Co substrate can be tuned by the insertion of a MoO{sub 3} buffer layer. Using ultraviolet photoemission spectroscopy, it was found that the introduction of MoO{sub 3} buffer layer effectively reduces the hole injection barrier from 0.8 eV to 0.4 eV for the CuPc/Co interface, and from 1.0 eV to 0.4 eV for the pentacene/Co interface, respectively. In addition, by varying the thickness of the buffer, the tuning effect of {Delta}{sub h} is shown to be independent of the thickness ofmore » MoO{sub 3} interlayer at both CuPc/Co and pentacene/Co interfaces. This Fermi level pinning effect can be explained by the integer charge-transfer model. Therefore, the MoO{sub 3} buffer layer has the potential to be applied in p-type organic spin valve devices to improve the device performance via reducing the interfacial hole injection barrier.« less
  • In this paper, we report the first measurements of transverse single-spin asymmetries for inclusive jet and jet+π ± production at midrapidity from transversely polarized proton-proton collisions at √s = 500 GeV. The data were collected in 2011 with the STAR detector sampled from 23 pb -1 integrated luminosity with an average beam polarization of 53%. Asymmetries are reported for jets with transverse momenta 6 < p T < 55 GeV/c and pseudorapidity |η| < 1. Presented are measurements of the inclusive-jet azimuthal transverse single-spin asymmetry, sensitive to twist-3 initial-state quarkgluon correlators; the Collins asymmetry, sensitive to quark transversity coupled tomore » the polarized Collins fragmentation function; and the first measurement of the “Collins-like” asymmetry, sensitive to linearly polarized gluons. Within the present statistical precision, inclusive-jet and Collins-like 3 asymmetries are small, with the latter allowing the first experimental constraints on gluon linear polarization in a polarized proton. At higher values of jet transverse momenta, we observe the first non-zero Collins asymmetries in polarized-proton collisions, with a statistical significance of greater than 5σ. The results span a range of x similar to results from SIDIS but at much higher Q 2. Finally, the Collins results enable tests of universality and factorization-breaking in the transverse momentum-dependent formulation of perturbative quantum chromodynamics.« less
