" TRACTRICIOUS " As we gear up for the 2008 Congress at FermiLab (and its eye-catching art such as the piece known as " Tractricious "), you might be wondering what became of the 10 r e c o m m e n-dations from the participants in the workshops at the 2004 Congress in Albuquerque, NM (and its h i s t o r i c Trinity site where the first A-bomb was tested).(More)
We demonstrate 3D surface plasmon photoresponse in nanopillar arrays resulting in enhanced responsivity due to both Localized Surface Plasmon Resonances (LSPRs) and Surface Plasmon Polariton Bloch Waves (SPP-BWs). The LSPRs are excited due to a partial gold shell coating the nanopillar which acts as a 3D Nanopillar Optical Antenna (NOA) in focusing light(More)
This paper uses X-ray absorption spectroscopy to study the electronic structure of the high-k gate dielectrics including TM and RE oxides. The results are applicable to TM and rare earth (RE) silicate and aluminate alloys, as well as complex oxides comprised of mixed TM/TM and TM/RE oxides. These studies identify the nature of the lowest conduction band d *(More)
We systematically measure the dielectric function of atomically thin MoS2 films with different layer numbers and demonstrate that excitonic effects play a dominant role in the dielectric function when the films are less than 5-7 layers thick. The dielectric function shows an anomalous dependence on the layer number. It decreases with the layer number(More)
I meant no harm, I promise. In the last issue of Radiations, I wanted to refer to the author of our cover story a second time; I reflexively chose to use " Ms. Tannenwald, " feeling rather virtuous that I didn't blurt out " Miss " or " Mrs. " What does it say about me that I didn't stop when selecting an appropriate title to consider that she is an(More)
