  • A new coherence imaging Doppler spectroscopy diagnostic has been deployed on the UK’s Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak for scrape-off-layer and divertor impurity flow measurements. The system has successfully obtained 2D images of C III, C II, and He II line-of-sight flows, in both the lower divertor and main scrape-off-layer. Flow imaging has been obtained at frame rates up to 1 kHz, with flow resolution of around 1 km/s and spatial resolution better than 1 cm, over a 40° field of view. C III data have been tomographically inverted to obtain poloidal profiles of the parallel impurity flow in the divertormore » under various conditions. In this paper we present the details of the instrument design, operation, calibration, and data analysis as well as a selection of flow imaging results which demonstrate the diagnostic's capabilities.« less
  • Recently, there has been a great deal of interest in x-ray magnetic circular dichroism (MCD) and its applications to the study of magnetic thin films and multilayers due to the dramatically enhanced dichroic effect and its element specific nature. In this work, the soft x-ray magneto-optical Kerr effect, an effect closely related to MCD, is investigated. Detailed comparison between MCD and the Kerr effect is discussed. As an example, recent results from a thin bcc Co film will be presented. In the Kerr effect measurement, specular reflectivity as a function of incident angle and photon energy was measured using bothmore » linearly polarized and circularly polarized x rays. To give the largest effect, in the case of linearly polarized light, specular reflectivity was measured in the transverse configuration, while in the case of circularly polarized light, the measurement was carried out in the longitudinal configuration. In both cases very large changes in reflectivity, up to 40% in the linearly polarized case and 75% in the circularly polarized case, were observed near the Co [ital L][sub II] and [ital L][sub III] absorption edges upon reversal of the direction of the magnetic field. These results agree very well with a macroscopic model calculation.« less
  • In this paper we discuss photoluminescence (PL) and Raman excitations in the diluted magnetic semiconductors Zn[sub 1[minus][ital x]]Co[sub [ital x]]Se and Zn[sub 1[minus][ital x]]Fe[sub [ital x]]Se. The PL spectra associated with isolated crystal field [ital d] levels are found to rapidly weaken and/or broaden as the transition metal ion concentration approaches and increases beyond a critical value. In addition a Raman continuum, that overlaps with the optical phonon, is observed to develop when the PL features are modified. In the corresponding Zn[sub 1[minus][ital x]]Co[sub [ital x]]Se samples the optical phonons acquire a characteristic Fano line shape suggestive of its couplingmore » to the Raman continuum. It is proposed that these changes to the optical transitions arise from the enhancement of an [ital effective] [ital p]--[ital d] hybridization between low-lying [ital d] levels and band electrons with increasing [ital x]---an effect largely due to the proximity of the Co[sup 2+] and Fe[sup 2+] crystal field ground levels to the valence band maximum.« less
  • The magnetic properties of nanoarrays have been investigated using Brillouin scattering, magneto-optical Kerr effect (MOKE) and diffracted-MOKE (DMOKE) techniques. The anisotropies in negative arrays are found to be due to the shape of the holes and not due to the array itself. The DMOKE results allow us to extract the domain pattern at remanence. {copyright} 2001 American Institute of Physics.
  • The recently discovered novel giant polar magneto-optical Kerr rotation of 90{degree} in CeSb is compared to previous record Kerr signals of the order of 10{degree}, and to another newly discovered giant Kerr signal of 22{degree} in CeS. An analysis of the temperature and field dependence of the off-diagonal conductivity spectra of CeSb is presented which allows an empirical assignment of several structures to electronic transitions. In particular, a folding of bands due to magnetic superstructures in a ferrimagnetic phase is shown to account for three additional peaks. {copyright} {ital 1997 American Institute of Physics.}
