High thermoelectric power factor in ambient-stable semiconducting rare-earth ErN thin films

Erbium nitride (ErN) is an emerging semiconducting rare-earth pnictide with unique electronic and magnetic properties. ErN has attracted significant interest for spin superlattices and spintronic

Superconductivity in the ferromagnetic semiconductor samarium nitride

The discovery of materials that simultaneously host different phases of matter has often initially confounded, but ultimately enhanced, our basic understanding of the coexisting types of order. The

Sublimation Growth and Characterization of Erbium Nitride Crystals

Erbium nitride (ErN) is a rare earth nitride notable for its magnetic and optical properties. Here we report on its growth on a non-native substrate, tungsten foil, via physical vapor transport, and

Study on the Synthesis of HoN Nanoparticles and Magnetocaloric Effect as Magnetic Refrigerant for Hydrogen Re-Liquefaction

>> Rare-earth (RE) nitrides can be used as magnetocaloric materials in low temperature. They exhibit ferromagnetism and have Curie temperature in the region from 6 to 70 K. In this study, Holmium

Magnetocaloric properties of TbN, DyN and HoN nanopowders prepared by the plasma arc discharge method.

The synthesis of nanopowders of TbN, DyN and HoN crystallized in a cubic structure by the plasma arc discharge (PAD) method is reported for the first time and their magnetocaloric properties for magnetic refrigeration applications are investigated.

Luminescent Nd2S3 thin films: a new chemical vapour deposition route towards rare-earth sulphides.

The process circumvents post-deposition treatments such as sulfurisation to fabricate the desired Nd2S3, which paves the way for large scale synthesis and also opens up new avenues for exploring the potential of this class of materials with properties for functional applications.

Rocksalt nitride metal/semiconductor superlattices: A new class of artificially structured materials

Artificially structured materials in the form of superlattice heterostructures enable the search for exotic new physics and novel device functionalities, and serve as tools to push the fundamentals

수소재액화를 위한 자기냉매용 HoN 나노분말 합성 및 자기열량효과 연구

Rare-earth (RE) nitrides can be used as magnetocaloric materials in low temperature. They exhibit ferromagnetism and have Curie temperature in the region from 6 to 70 K. In this study, Holmium

Electrical Properties of planar Metal-GdN-Metal junctions for Spintronic Applications

In this thesis the properties of planar metal-gadolinium nitride-metal junctions have been studied with the aim of establishing ohmic and Schottky contacts to thin polycrystalline films of n-type



Magnetic properties of stoichiometric Gd monopnictides

We report on the systematic magnetization measurements performed on the stoichiometric Gd monopnictides, ( = N, P, As, Sb, and Bi), at temperatures between 1.6 and 350 K in magnetic fields up to 42

Handbook on the physics and chemistry of rare earths

The first volumes of the "Handbook on the Physics and Chemistry of Rare Earths" were published in 1978 and 1979. Since then, approximately one volume per year has been published, making a total of 15

Properties of Rare‐Earth Nitrides

The optical and electrical properties of the rare‐earth nitrides DyN, ErN, and HoN as well as ScN and YN have been surveyed. From absorption edges found in the optical transmission curves, energy

Magnetic Ordering Properties of Rare-Earth Ions in Strong Cubic Crystal Fields

A theoretical discussion of some of the effects resulting from the interplay between strong crystalline-field torques and weaker exchange torques acting on rare-earth ions is given. The crystalline


The magnetic properties of binary rare‐earth compounds are reviewed. The influence of crystal field and exchange interaction on the magnetic properties is shown to vary systematically in the group of

Interface-induced room-temperature multiferroicity in BaTiO₃.

Ab initio calculations of realistic interface structures provide insight into the origin of the induced moments and bring support to this new approach for creating room-temperature multiferroics.

Rare-earth-doped GaN: growth, properties, and fabrication of electroluminescent devices

A review is presented of the fabrication, operation, and applications of rare-earth-doped GaN electroluminescent devices (ELDs). GaN:RE ELDs emit light due to impact excitation of the rare earth (RE)
