The 2:3:6 quasi-periodic oscillation structure in GRS 1915+105 and cubic subharmonics in the context of relativistic discoseismology
(Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society 440:3011-3015, 2014-06-01)
We propose a simple toy model to explain the 2:3:6 quasi-periodic oscillation (QPO) structure in GRS 1915+105 and, more generally, the 2:3 QPO structure in XTE J1550−564, GRO J1655−40 and H1743−322. The model exploits the ...
Large isotropic negative thermal expansion above a structural quantum phase transition
Perovskite structured materials contain myriad tunable ordered phases of electronic and magnetic origin with proven technological importance and strong promise for a variety of energy solutions. An always-contributing ...
Why is the electrocaloric effect so small in ferroelectrics?
Ferroelectrics are attractive candidate materials for environmentally friendly solid state refrigeration free of greenhouse gases. Their thermal response upon variations of external electric fields is largest in the vicinity ...
Estimation of Silicon Nanocrystalline Sizes from Photoluminescence Measurements of RF Co-Sputtered Si/SiO2 Films
(Materials Research Society Symposium Proceedings 737 (2003), 2003)
A stochastic distribution of nanocrystalline sizes model is applied to fit photoluminescence (PL) spectra of luminescent Si nanocrystals in a Si/SiO2 matrix synthesized by RF co-sputtering on the top of quartz substrates. ...
