Generating aerosol droplets via the atomization of thin aqueous films with high frequency surface acoustic waves (SAWs) offers several advantages over existing nebulization methods, particularly for pulmonary drug delivery, offering droplet sizes in the 1-5-μm range ideal for effective pulmonary therapy. Nevertheless, the physics underlying SAW atomization… (More)
—New generation 4 Gbit DDR3 SDRAMs from Sam-sung and Elpida have been tested for hard errors and device SEFIs under heavy ions.
Amorphous silicon nitride is a model system for a covalently bound amorphous solid with a low atomic mobility where reasonable values of self-diffusivities are still lacking. We used neutron reflectometry on isotope enriched Si3 14N4/Si3 15N4 multilayers to determine nitrogen self-diffusivities ranging from 10(-24) to 10(-21) m2/s between 950 and 1250… (More)
Different 2-Gbit and 4-Gbit DDR3 SDRAM devices have been tested. Under 60 Co, some of them showed a peculiar error pattern. Under heavy ions, none of the tested types displayed any latch-up. 2 I. INTRODUCTION SDRAM devices  are relevant for space applications – in particular for spacecrafts that will encounter a high total dose, like ESA's upcoming JUICE… (More)
4-Gbit DDR3 SDRAM devices have been tested for total-dose effects up to 400 krad. Some devices show a very peculiar error pattern, depending on the time a page is kept active.
—16/32-Gbit NAND-Flash memories have been tested under heavy ion irradiation. The cross section and the current waveforms for Destructive Failures and the annealing of hard and soft SEUs are presented.
