Reordering more than traditional joins (e.g. outerjoins, antijoins) requires some care, since not all reorderings are valid. To prevent invalid plans, two approaches have been described in the literature. We show that both approaches still produce invalid plans. We present three conflict detectors. All of them are (1) correct, i.e., prevent invalid plans,(More)
A theoretical prediction by de Gennes suggests that the resistance in a FI/S/FI (where FI is a ferromagnetic insulator, and S is a superconductor) structure will depend on the magnetization direction of the two FI layers. We report a magnetotransport measurement in a EuS/Al/EuS structure, showing that an infinite magnetoresistance can be produced by tuning(More)
We present an electronic transport experiment in graphene where both classical and quantum mechanical charge detector back-action on a quantum dot are investigated. The device consists of two stacked graphene quantum dots separated by a thin layer of boron nitride. This device is fabricated by van der Waals stacking and is equipped with separate source and(More)
Chemically engineered interfaces are shown to produce inversions of the magnetoresistance in spintronic devices including lithium fluoride interlayers. This behavior is explained by the formation of anti-ferromagnetic difluoride layers. By changing the order of deposition of the different materials, the sign of the magnetoresistance can be deterministically(More)
Proposal This proposal describes the innovative and competitive lunar payload solution developed at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) – the LunaRoo: a hopping robot designed to exploit the Moon's lower gravity to leap up to 20m above the surface. It is compact enough to fit within a 10cm cube, whilst providing unique observation and mission(More)
We report on the observation of magnetoresistance oscillations in graphene p-n junctions. The oscillations have been observed for six samples, consisting of single-layer and bilayer graphene, and persist up to temperatures of 30 K, where standard Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations are no longer discernible. The oscillatory magnetoresistance can be reproduced by(More)
It has been a recognized fact for many years that query execution can benefit from pushing group-by operators down in the operator tree and applying them before a join. This so-called eager aggrega-tion reduces the size(s) of the join argument(s), making join evaluation faster. Lately, the idea enjoyed a revival when it was applied to outer joins for the(More)
