Control of the metal-insulator transition in vanadium dioxide by modifying orbital occupancy
Bulk vanadium dioxide undergoes a metal–insulator transition near room temperature. It is now shown that by putting a thin layer of vanadium dioxide on a buffer, and varying the buffer’s thickness,Expand

Oxygen spectroscopy and polarization-dependent imaging contrast (PIC)-mapping of calcium carbonate minerals and biominerals.
X-ray absorption near-edge structure (XANES) spectroscopy and spectromicroscopy have been extensively used to characterize biominerals. Using either Ca or C spectra, unique information has beenExpand

Long-range ferromagnetic order in LaCoO3-delta epitaxial films due to the interplay of epitaxial strain and oxygen vacancy ordering
We demonstrate that a combination of electronic structure modification and oxygen vacancy ordering can stabilize a long-range ferromagnetic ground state in epitaxial LaCoO_(3) thin films. HighestExpand

Interfacial ferromagnetism in LaNiO3/CaMnO3 superlattices.
We observe interfacial ferromagnetism in superlattices of the paramagnetic metal LaNiO3 and the antiferromagnetic insulator CaMnO3. LaNiO3 exhibits a thickness dependent metal-insulator transitionExpand

Correlation-Driven Insulator-Metal Transition in Near-Ideal Vanadium Dioxide Films.
We use polarization- and temperature-dependent x-ray absorption spectroscopy, in combination with photoelectron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, and electronic transport measurements, to study theExpand

How does change occur following a theoretically based self-management intervention for type 2 diabetes
The purpose of this study was to test the extent that constructs from two theoretical models (self-regulatory theory and social cognitive theory) mediated change in outcomes following aExpand

Growth and magnetic control of twinning structure in thin films of Heusler shape memory compound Ni2MnGa
Twin structure engineering in sputtered films close to the Heusler stoichiometry Ni2MnGa (001) is used to demonstrate temperature and magnetic control of the phase transformation behavior. A customExpand

Experimental evidence for oxygen sublattice control in polar infinite layer SrCuO2.
A recent theoretical study [Phys. Rev. B 85, 121411(R) (2012)] predicted a thickness limit below which ideal polar cuprates turn nonpolar driven by the associated electrostatic instability. Here weExpand

Authenticity through Reflexivity: Connecting Teaching Philosophy and Practice.
Adult educators have strong beliefs. This will surprise no-one, but where do their beliefs come from, and how do they influence future development of their teaching practice? Drawing on my PhDExpand
