Ferroelectric and magnetic materials are a time-honoured subject of study and have led to some of the most important technological advances to date. Magnetism and ferroelectricity are involved with local spins and off-centre structural distortions, respectively. These two seemingly unrelated phenomena can coexist in certain unusual materials, termed(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to find a region of low wall shear stress (WSS) in a basilar artery using 3-dimensional (3D) geometric analysis and blood flow simulation. METHODS A 61-year-old patient who underwent follow-up time-of-flight magnetic resonance angiography (TOF-MRA) of the brain was recruited as the subject of the present study. In the basilar(More)
We have studied the magnetostructural phase diagram of multiferroic TbMn2O5 as a function of temperature and magnetic field by neutron diffraction. Dielectric and magnetic anomalies are found to be associated with steps in the magnetic propagation vector, including a rare example of a commensurate-incommensurate transition on cooling below 24 K, and in the(More)
Blood flow velocity is an important determinant of vascular hemodynamics. The aim of the present study was to determine the mean flow velocities (MFVs) of cerebral arteries in patients with ischemic stroke, comparing lacunar and nonlacunar infarctions. 388 consecutive patients were examined for lacunar infarction, other subtypes of ischemic stroke, and the(More)
We have measured the optical conductivity of single crystal LuMnO3 from 10 to 45000 cm(-1) at temperatures between 4 and 300 K. A symmetry allowed on-site Mn d-d transition near 1.7 eV is observed to blueshift ( approximately 0.1 eV) in the antiferromagnetic state due to Mn-Mn superexchange interactions. Similar anomalies are observed in the temperature(More)
We have investigated the detailed magnetic field dependence of the electric polarization and dielectric constant in (Tb,Dy,Ho)Mn2O5 where magnetic and ferroelectric transitions are intimately coupled. Our fundamental discovery is the unprecedented large change of the dielectric constant with magnetic field, particularly in DyMn2O5, associated with an(More)
We have studied the competitive entry of potassium and sodium into carbon nanotubes using molecular dynamics simulations. Our results demonstrate how a combination of strong sodium hydration coupled with strong potassium-chlorine interaction leads to enhanced potassium selectivity at certain diameters. We detail the reasons behind this, and show how(More)
AIM Deep pontine lacunar infarction (DPLI) not involving the basal pial surface of the medial part of the pons, is known to be a small vessel disease in the territory of the basilar artery (BA). In the present study, we examined whether morphological features of the BA differ in individuals with an advanced age and may be associated with DPLI. METHODS(More)
The thermal conductivity of the magnetically frustrated, ferroelectric YMnO3 exhibits an isotropic suppression in the cooperative paramagnetic state, followed by a sudden increase upon magnetic ordering. This unprecedented behavior without an associated static structural distortion probably originates from the strong dynamic coupling between acoustic(More)
The immiscibility between rhombohedral La(5/8)Sr(3/8)MnO3 and hexagonal LuMnO3 leads to a microm-scale heterogeneous mixture of half-metallic-ferromagnetic and insulating-ferroelectric phases. Electronic conduction of the mixture exhibits nearly ideal percolation behavior in the paramagnetic state with a threshold of 0.224(5) metal volume fraction and a(More)
