Ultrasound attenuation in Sr(2)RuO(4): an angle-resolved study of the superconducting gap function.
It is shown that the power law behavior of alpha at temperatures down to T(c)/30 clearly indicates the presence of nodes in the gap, and an enormous anisotropy of alpha is found in the basal plane of the tetragonal structure in the normal state.
Spinless Impurities in High- T c Cuprates: Kondo-Like Behavior
We compare the effects of in-plane nonmagnetic ${\mathrm{Li}}^{+}$ and ${\mathrm{Zn}}^{2+}$ impurities on the normal state of high- ${T}_{c}$ cuprates. ${}^{89}\mathrm{Y}$ NMR shows that the extra

β-NMR measurements of lithium ion transport in thin films of pure and lithium-salt-doped poly(ethylene oxide).
It is proposed that the hopping of Li(+) between cages involves motion of the polymer but that it is only for long-range diffusion where the α relaxation plays an important role.
Nature of weak magnetism in SrTiO3/LaAlO3 multilayers.
Results show that the magnetism at the interface depends strongly on the thickness of the spacer layer, and that a minimal thickness of ~4-6 unit cells is required for the appearance of magnetism.

  • 1 June 2015
Technical aspects of implanted-ion β-NMR, combined with the low energy ion beam, enable depth resolved NMR measurements in crystals, thin films and multilayers on depth scales of 2-200 nm.
Nature of magnetism in thiol-capped gold nanoparticles investigated with Muon spin rotation
Muon spin rotation/relaxation measurements show clear evidence for magnetism in 2.2 nm gold nanoparticles capped with butanethiol. At low temperatures (1.8 K), there is significant spin relaxation
