Title: Matrix-type effect on the magnetotransport properties of Ni–AlO and Ni–NbO composite systems

Abstract

The effect of the insulating-matrix material on the electronic and magnetic properties of nanocomposites is investigated in the Ni{sub x}(Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}){sub 100–x} metal–insulator system and the Ni{sub x}(Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5}){sub 100–x} metal–semiconductor system. It is established that the characteristics of composites determined by electron transport through the matrix (the electrical resistivity, the position of the electrical percolation threshold, the magnetoresistance effect) depend on the material type. Replacement of the matrix from Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} to Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5} results in a decrease in the electrical resistivity by two–three orders of magnitude, a decrease in the magnetic resistivity by more than an order of magnitude, and in displacement of the percolation threshold from 40 to 30 at % of Ni. In this case, the magnetic properties of the composites are independent of the type of matrix: the concentration of the magnetic percolation threshold is identical in the two systems (~45 at % of Ni), and the coercive force of the samples occurring beyond the percolation threshold is close in magnitude (5–8 and 12–18 Oe) in the Ni{sub x}(Nb{sub 2}O{sub 5}){sub 100–x} and Ni{sub x}(Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}){sub 100–x} composites, respectively.

  • Fiber/matrix interfacial debonding and frictional sliding stresses were evaluated by single-fiber pushout tests on unidirectional continuous silicon-carbide-fiber-reinforced, reaction-bonded silicon nitride matrix composites. The debonding and maximum pushout loads required to overcome interfacial friction were obtained from load-displacement plots of pushout tests. Interfacial debonding and frictional sliding stresses were evaluated for composites with various fiber contents and fiber surface conditions (coated and uncoated), and after matrix densification by hot isostatic pressing (HIPing). For as-fabricated composites, both debonding and frictional sliding stresses decreased with increasing fiber content. The HIPed composites, however, exhibited higher interfacial debonding and frictional sliding stresses than those ofmore » the as-fabricated composites. These results were related to variations in axial and transverse residual stresses on fibers in the composites. A shear-lag model developed for a partially debonded composite, including full residual stress field, was employed to analyze the nonlinear dependence of maximum pushout load on embedded fiber length for as-fabricated and HIPed composites. Interfacial friction coefficients of 0.1--0.16 fitted the experimental data well. The extremely high debonding stress observed in uncoated fibers is believed to be due to strong chemical bonding between fiber and matrix.« less
  • Alumina (Al[sub 2]O[sub 3]) particles reinforced aluminum matrix composites have recently become candidates for structural materials because of their good specific modulus and strength, and are considered to be valuable materials for aerospace and automobile industry applications. In view of such application, they might be processed or applied in high strain rate loading conditions, such as explosive forming, blast loading and metalworking, etc. Knowledge of the mechanical behavior of the metal matrix composites under high strain rate loading is a prerequisite. However, not much work related to this topic has been done. The objective of this study was to investigatemore » the effect of the strain rate on the tensile properties of the Al[sub 2]O[sub 3p]/6061-T6 composite at low temperatures.« less
  • The results of detailed study of the magnetotransport properties of broken-gap type II heterojunctions in a GaInAsSb/InAs(GaSb) system are reported. An electron channel with a high charge-carrier mobility (as high as 50000-60000 cm{sup 2}/(V s)) is observed and studied for the first time in an isotype broken-gap p-GaInAsSb/p-InAs heterostructure. The effects of electron-channel depletion and semimetal-semiconductor transition in the case of heavy doping of the quaternary alloy with acceptors are studied. Magnetotransport properties at temperatures of 4.2-200 K are studied in detail. Data on the energy spectrum and parameters of two-dimensional charge carriers at the heteroboundary are obtained. It ismore » ascertained experimentally that, depending on the composition, either staggered (at x = 0.85) or broken-gap (at x = 0.95) heterojunctions can be formed in the Ga{sub 1-x}In{sub x}As{sub y}Sb{sub 1-y}/GaSb, which is confirmed by theoretical calculations. The anomalous Hall effect and negative magnetoresistance were observed in GaInAsSb/InAs:Mn grown on substrates doped heavily with Mn magnetic acceptor impurity so that the hole concentration was as high as p > 5 x 10{sup 18} cm{sup -3}; these phenomena are caused by exchange interaction of Mn ions in InAs with high-mobility charge carriers in the electron channel at the heterointerface.« less
  • The effect of antiferromagnetic (AFM) layer on exchange bias (EB), training effect, and magnetotransport properties in ferromagnetic (FM) /AFM nanoscale antidot arrays and sheet films Ag(10 nm)/Co(8 nm)/NiO(t{sub NiO})/Ag(5 nm) at 10 K is studied. The AFM layer thickness dependence of the EB field shows a peak at t{sub NiO} = 2 nm that is explained by using the random field model. The misalignment of magnetic moments in the three-dimensional antidot arrays causes smaller decrease of EB field compared with that in the sheet films for training effect. The anomalous magnetotransport properties, in particular positive magnetoresistance (MR) for antidot arrays but negative MR for sheet films aremore » found. The training effect and magnetotransport properties are strongly affected by the three-dimensional spin-alignment effects in the antidot arrays.« less
  • With magnetic composite including uniform magnetic particles, we expect to realize good high-frequency soft magnetic properties. We produced needle-like (α-FeOOH) nanoparticles with nearly uniform diameter and length of 20 and 500 nm. Zn-doped Y-type hexa-ferrite samples were prepared by solid state reaction method using the uniform goethite and non-uniform hematite (Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3}) with size of <1 μm, respectively. The micrographs observed by scanning electron microscopy show that more uniform hexagonal plates are observed in ZYG-sample (Zn-doped Y-type hexa-ferrite prepared with non-uniform hematite) than in ZYH-sample (Zn-doped Y-type hexa-ferrite prepared with uniform goethite). The permeability (μ′) and loss tangent (δ) atmore » 2 GHz are 2.31 and 0.07 in ZYG-sample and 2.0 and 0.07 in ZYH sample, respectively. We can observe that permeability and loss tangent are strongly related to the particle size and uniformity based on the nucleation, growth, and two magnetizing mechanisms: spin rotation and domain wall motion. The complex permeability spectra also can be numerically separated into spin rotational and domain wall resonance components.« less
