GPGPU (General-purpose computing on graphics processing units) has several difficulties when used in cloud environment, such as narrow bandwidth, higher cost, and lower security, compared with computation using only CPUs. Most high performance computing applications require huge communication between nodes, and do not fit a cloud environment, since network(More)
The interaction between the electric field E and spins in multiorbital Mott insulators is studied theoretically. We find a generic coupling mechanism, which works for all crystal lattices and which does not involve relativistic effects. It couples E to the "internal" electric field e originating from the dynamical Berry phase. We discuss several effects of(More)
Graphene is a two-dimensional carbon material with a honeycomb lattice and Dirac-like low-energy excitations. When Zeeman and spin-orbit interactions are neglected, its Landau levels are fourfold degenerate, explaining the 4e2/h separation between quantized Hall conductivity values seen in recent experiments. In this Letter we derive a criterion for the(More)
We report successful spin injection into the surface states of topological insulators by using a spin pumping technique. By measuring the voltage that shows up across the samples as a result of spin pumping, we demonstrate that a spin-electricity conversion effect takes place in the surface states of bulk-insulating topological insulators(More)
Shock-induced collapse of nanobubbles in water is investigated with molecular dynamics simulations based on a reactive force field. We observe a focused jet at the onset of bubble shrinkage and a secondary shock wave upon bubble collapse. The jet length scales linearly with the nanobubble radius, as observed in experiments on micron-to-millimeter size(More)
Acknowledgments I must admit that pursuing my graduate studies here at the University of Texas at Austin gave me a rare opportunity to be under the tutelage of talented professors. However, today I feel chiefly indebted to my advisor Dr. Allan MacDonald for the patience and sincerity he has shown me in regard to this dissertation. I would like to take this(More)
In this paper, the authors demonstrate the improvement of HfSiON pFET characteristics with F incorporation technique, which might be a powerful tool to lower Vth in pFET with both poly-Si and PC-FUSI gate. Using F implantation in channel region prior to HfSiON formation Vth lowering up to ~200mV is obtained without mobility degradation. Furthermore, impact(More)
γ softness in atomic nuclei is investigated in the framework of energy density functionals. By mapping constrained microscopic energy surfaces for a set of representative nonaxial medium-heavy and heavy nuclei to a Hamiltonian of the proton-neutron interacting boson model (IBM-2) containing up to three-body interactions, low-lying collective spectra and(More)
We demonstrate that spin-orbit coupled electrons in a magnetically doped system exert a spin torque on the local magnetization, without a flowing current, when the chemical potential is modulated in a magnetic field. The spin torque is proportional to the anomalous Hall conductivity, and its effective field strength may overcome the Zeeman field. Using this(More)
