New Phenomenon in an old Material: Spin-Phonon Interaction in EuO

Comprehensive studies of lattice dynamics in the ferromagnetic semiconductor EuO have been performed by a combination of inelastic x-ray scattering, nuclear inelastic scattering, and ab initio calculations.
The results indicate a giant spin-phonon interaction in EuO

Thermal Stability Studies of DySi2 Nanowires and Nanoislands by in situ GISAXS
Thermal Stability Studies of DySi2 Nanowires and Nanoislands

Researchers have investigated the thermal stability of parallel, high aspect ratio DySi2 nanowires and nanoislands, self-organized on vicinal Si(001), as a function of the annealing temperature, from room temperature up to 760 °C, using in situ grazing incidence small-angle X-ray scattering (GISAXS)
