Time-resolved carrier dynamics and electron-phonon coupling strength in proximized weak ferromagnet/superconductor nanobilayers bilayers

- Physics
- 2007

We present our femtosecond optical pump-probe studies of proximized ferromagnet-superconductor nanobilayers. The weak ferromagnetic nature of a thin NiCu film makes it possible to observe the…

Electron Phonon Collisions, Fermi Dirac Distribution and Bloch's $T^5$ law

- Physics
- 2017

In this paper, we model exchange of energy between electrons in solids and the phonon bath as electron-phonon collisions. Phonons are modelled as packets which create a lattice deformation potential…
