Observation of depolarized ZnO(0001) monolayers: formation of unreconstructed planar sheets.
A novel nonpolar structure of 2 monolayer (ML) thick ZnO(0001) films grown on Ag(111) has been revealed, using surface x-ray diffraction and scanning tunneling microscopy, which stabilizes an atomically flat surface morphology unseen for ZNO surfaces thus far.
Hexagonally ordered 100 nm period nickel nanowire arrays
The magnetic behavior of 100 nm period arrays of Ni nanowires embedded in a highly ordered alumina pore matrix were characterized by magnetometry and magnetic force microscopy. Reducing the diameter
Strongly enhanced orbital moment by reduced lattice symmetry and varying composition of Fe1-xCox alloy films.
The experiments show that the adjustment of the Fermi level by a proper choice of the alloy composition is decisive for the large magnetic orbital moment and for a large magnetic anisotropy in a tetragonally distorted lattice.
Phase-locked MHz pulse selector for x-ray sources.
The electronic phase stabilization of ±2  ns together with an arrival time jitter of the individual slits of the same order of magnitude allows us to pick short single bunch x-ray pulses out of a 200 ns ion clearing gap in a multibunch pulse train as emitted from a synchrotron facility at 1.25 MHz repetition rate with a pulse purity below the shot noise detection limit.

Magnetic properties and spin polarization of Co 2 MnSi Heusler alloy thin films epitaxially grown on GaAs(001)
Single-crystalline ${\mathrm{Co}}_{2}\mathrm{MnSi}$ Heusler alloy films have been grown on GaAs(001) substrates by pulsed laser deposition (PLD). The best crystallographic quality of the
Magnetoelectric charge trap memory.
It is demonstrated that a charge-trapping layer placed in proximity to a ferromagnetic metal enables efficient electrical and optical control of the metal's magnetic properties. Retention of charge
