We report a Raman scattering study of low-temperature, pressure-induced melting of the charge-density-wave (CDW) phase of 1T-TiSe2. Our measurements reveal that the collapse of the CDW state occurs in three stages: (i) For P<5 kbar, the pressure dependence of the CDW amplitude mode energies and intensities are indicative of a "crystalline" CDW regime; (ii)(More)
Raman scattering studies as functions of temperature, magnetic field, and Gd substitution are used to investigate the evolution of magnetic polarons and spin-carrier interactions through the metal-insulator transition in Eu(1-x)Gd(x)O. These studies reveal a spin-fluctuation-dominated paramagnetic (PM) regime for T>T*>T(C), and a coexistence regime for T<T*(More)
The 350-keV Cockroft-Walton accelerator at Sandia National laboratory's Ion Beam facility is being used to calibrate absolutely a total DT neutron yield diagnostic based on the (63)Cu(n,2n)(62)Cu(β+) reaction. These investigations have led to first-order uncertainties approaching 5% or better. The experiments employ the associated-particle technique.(More)
We present inelastic light scattering measurements of EuO and Eu1−xLaxB6 (x=0, 0.005, 0.01, 0.03 and 0.05) as functions of doping, magnetic field and temperature. Our results reveal a variety of distinct regimes as a function of decreasing T: (a) a paramagnetic semimetal regime, which is characterized by a decrease in Γ, the carrier scattering rate, with(More)
In an effort to better understand the structural changes occurring during hydrogen loading of erbium target materials, we have performed in-situ D2 loading of erbium metal (powder) at temperature (450C) with simultaneous neutron diffraction analysis. This experiment tracked the conversion of Er metal to the  erbium deuteride (solid-solution) phase and then(More)
We report a Raman scattering study of the pressure-induced collapse of the Mott-like phases of Ca3Ru2O7 (T(N)=56 K) and Ca2RuO4 (T(N)=110 K). The pressure dependence of the phonon and two-magnon excitations in these materials indicate (i) a T approximately 0 pressure-induced collapse of the antiferromagnetic (AF) insulating phase above P(*) approximately 55(More)
XRD analysis of plasma-vapor-deposited ErT2 films during aging (T decay to He) reveals an hkl-dependent unit-cell expansion in which (200) grains expand out-of-plane as much as 0.01 Å more than (111) out-of-plane grains. Texture analysis of an aged ErT2 film reveals a bimodal (111)/(200) out-of-plane preferred orientation. Sinψ analysis reveals significant(More)
