An effect discovered by Duifhuis [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 48, 888-893 (1970)], wherein an omitted high harmonic of a periodic complex tone is found to have an audible pitch, is extended to a variety of new broadband signal conditions. The effect is found to exist for flat spectra and spectra decreasing at 6 dB/octave, independent of phases as long as they are(More)
A harmonic of a periodic complex tone can be heard out as a separate entity if the harmonic is slightly mistuned from its correct frequency. Pitch matching experiments show that the pitch of such a mistuned harmonic differs systematically from its frequency. The shift in pitch is found to be an exaggeration of the frequency mistuning.

We report ferromagnetism in carbon-doped ZnO. Our first-principles calculations based on density functional theory predicted a magnetic moment of 2.02 mu(B) per carbon when carbon substitutes oxygen in ZnO, and an ferromagnetic coupling among magnetic moments of the carbon dopants. The theoretical prediction was confirmed experimentally. C-doped ZnO films(More)
We have observed for the first time conductivity fluctuations in the persistent photoconductivity mode in II-VI mixed crystals with the magnitude following the percolation approach as ~ T — T, ~ s, where T, is the percolation threshold temperature. Experimental results have demonstrated that the random local-potential fluctuations induced by compositional(More)
The wide angular-range chopper spectrometer ARCS at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) is optimized to provide a high neutron flux at the sample position with a large solid angle of detector coverage. The instrument incorporates modern neutron instrumentation, such as an elliptically focused neutron guide, high speed magnetic bearing choppers, and a(More)
Electrical properties of nitrogen (N) doped 6H-SiC have been investigated throughout the temperature range from 10 K to 550 K. Scattering mechanisms in different temperature regions have been investigated. Persistent photoconductivity (PPC) has also been observed. Because of the existence of PPC, we have been able to vary continuously the electron(More)
The metal-insulator transition (MIT) caused purely by alloy disorder in a Zno 3Cdo 7Se semiconductor alloy has been probed by using persistent photoconductivity. Key parameters that describe the MIT, including the critical electron concentration n, and the energy tail states distribution parameter Eo, have been determined experimentally. Our results,(More)
