Title Magnetoresistance effect in (La, Sr)MnO_3 bicrystalline films Type Journal Article
Year 2010 Publication Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter Abbreviated Journal
Volume 22 Issue 34 Pages 346007
Keywords
Abstract The angular dependence of the magnetoresistance effect has been measured on bicrystalline La 0.75 Sr 0.25 MnO 3 films. The measurements have been performed on an electronically lithographed Wheatstone bridge. The study of the angular dependence of both the magnetoresistance and the resistance of single-crystalline and grain-boundary regions of the samples allowed us to isolate two contributions of low-field magnetoresistance in manganites. One of them is associated with the spin–orbit effect, i.e. the anisotropic magnetoresistance of ferromagnetic compounds, and the other one is related to spin-disorder regions at the grain boundary. Complementary x-ray diffraction, ferromagnetic resonance and low temperature magnetization experiments contribute to the characterization of the magnetic anisotropy of the samples and the general comprehension of the problem.

Title Magnetization measurement of single La0.67Ca0.33MnO3 nanotubes in perpendicular magnetic fields using a micromechanical torsional oscillator Type Journal Article
Year 2010 Publication Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials Abbreviated Journal
Volume 322 Issue 5 Pages 488-493
Keywords Manganite nanotubes; Micromachined magnetometers; Shape anisotropy
Abstract Using a silicon micromechanical resonator as a sensitive magnetometer, the authors have studied both experimentally and theoretically the magnetic behavior of two isolated ferromagnetic nanotubes of perovskite La0.67Ca0.33MnO3. The article investigates the specific configuration where a magnetic field H is applied perpendicular to the magnetic easy axis of an isolated nanotube characterized by an uniaxial anisotropy constant K. In this situation, the magnetization M reduces the effective elastic constant kM of the resonator. This softening of the mechanical system is opposed to the hardening effect of M observed in a previous work, where H was applied parallel to the easy axis. Moreover, in this magnetic field configuration two distinct magnetization regimes are manifested, depending on the magnitude of H. For H[not double greater-than sign]2K/M the magnetization is almost parallel to the applied magnetic field and for H[double less-than sign]2K/M it is almost parallel to the easy axis of the nanotube. At a certain value of H there is a sharp transition

Title Superconducting Devices for Radioastronomy; First Steps in Chile: SNS-junction Fabrication Type Conference Article
Year 2010 Publication Abbreviated Journal
Volume 1 Issue Pages 424-427
Keywords
Abstract We present results of the microfabrication of Josephson Junctions (JJs) of Superconductor-Normal-superconductor (SNS) type, as a first step in the acquisition of the know-how of superconducting devices applied to radioastronomy. A twojunction SQUID was built using a Nb/Al bilayer deposited on a Si wafer. The procedure needs only one mask and a single UV exposure (i.e., one photolithography step). We show the micrograph and the observed non linear characteristic I-V curve at 4K of the first device fabricated in the framework of ALMA Grant 31090010.

Title Evidence for a metamagnetic transition in the heavy Fermion system CeTiGe Type Conference Article
Year 2010 Publication Journal of Physics: Conference Series Abbreviated Journal J. Phys.: Conf. Ser.
Volume 200 Issue Pages 012026
Keywords Applied magnetic fields; Canonical systems; Continuous suppression; Critical behavior; Critical fields; DC magnetization; First order; Heavy fermion systems; Higher temperatures; Low temperatures; Metamagnetic; Metamagnetic transitions; Polycrystalline; Cerium; Cerium compounds; Electric resistance; Magnetic field effects; Magnetoresistance; Magnetism
Abstract A recent study of CeTiGe identified this compound as a paramagnetic heavy Fermion system where the full J = 5/2 multiplet is involved in the formation of the ground state. Here we present a preliminary investigation of the dc-magnetization Mdc(H) and of the magnetoresistance ρ(H) of polycrystalline CeTiGe samples in applied magnetic fields up to μ0H = 14 T. The results reveal a pronounced metamagnetic transition at a critical field μ0Hc ≈ 13.5 T at low temperatures, with a step like increase in Mdc(H) of at least 0.6 μB/Ce. The metamagnetic transition leads to a strong decrease in ρ(H). A clear hysteresis in Mdc(H) and ρ(H) indicate that in CeTiGe these metamagnetic features correspond to a true thermodynamic, first order type transition in contrast to the critical behavior observed in the canonical system CeRu2Si2. Measurements at higher temperatures showed a continuous suppression of the metamagnetic transition with increasing T, which vanishes at T ∼ 30 K. © 2010 IOP Publishing Ltd.

Title Direct determination of the collective pinning radius in the cuprate superconductor Bi2 Sr2 CaCu2 O8+ delta Type Journal Article
Year 2010 Publication Physical Review B Abbreviated Journal PRB
Volume 81 Issue 9 Pages 092502
Keywords
Abstract We study the onset of the irreversible magnetic behavior of vortex matter in micron-sized Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ single crystals by using silicon micro-oscillators. We find an irreversibility line appearing well below the thermodynamic Bragg-glass melting line at a magnetic field which increases both with increasing the sample radius and with decreasing the temperature, paradoxically implying the existence of a reversible vortex solid. We show that at this irreversibility line, the sample radius can be identified with the crossover length between the Larkin and the random-manifold regimes of the vortex-lattice transverse roughness. Our method thus allows to determine, as a function of temperature and applied magnetic field, the minimum size of a vortex system that can be collectively pinned, or the so-called three-dimensional weak collective pinning Larkin radius, in a direct way.

Title Synthesis and structural characterization of perovskite YFeO3 by thermal decomposition of a cyano complex precursor, Y[Fe(CN)6]·4H2O} Type Journal Article
Year 2010 Publication Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 1-8
Keywords
Abstract The thermal decomposition of Y[Fe(CN)6]·4H2O has been studied in order to investigate the formation of the multi-ferroic oxide YFeO3. The starting material (Y[Fe(CN)6]·4H2O) and the decomposition products were characterized by IR spectroscopy, thermal analysis, X-ray powder diffraction (PXRD), and scanning electron microscopy. Metastable YFeO3 with hexagonal structure, space group P63/mmc, was obtained by thermal decomposition of Y[Fe(CN)6]·4H2O at 600 °C in air. Orthorhombic YFeO3 was obtained by the same method at T ≥ 800 °C in air. The crystal structure of orthorhombic YFeO3 was refined by Rietveld analysis using PXRD data. We found that it was slightly deficient in Y3+, which is in agreement with the small amount of Y2O3 found as impurity in the sample. The formula of the orthorhombic phase is Y0.986FeO3

Title Development and characterization of shape memory Cu-Zn-Al thin films Type Journal Article
Year 2010 Publication Materials Science and Engineering B: Solid-State Materials for Advanced Technology Abbreviated Journal
Volume 170 Issue 1-3 Pages 5-8
Keywords
Abstract Ternary Cu-Zn-Al alloys show good shape memory properties with narrow hysteresis and a wide range of martensitic transformation temperature (Ms), depending on the alloy composition. Thin films of Cu-Zn-Al with shape memory effect were grown for the first time using a new procedure. First Cu-Al thin films were obtained by DC sputtering on Si (1 0 0) substrates at room temperature, and second, the Cu-Al films were encapsulated and annealed in the presence of a Cu-Zn-Al bulk reference in order to fix a Zn vapour pressure. In this way a controlled amount of Zn is transported from the bulk reference into the film, in such a way that the Ms of the film becomes nearly the same as the bulk reference. The structures and microstructures of the as grown films were analysed by X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy. The martensitic transformation temperature was determined by resistivity measurements.

Title Mean free path in soccer and gases Type Journal Article
Year 2010 Publication European Journal of Physics Abbreviated Journal
Volume 31 Issue 5 Pages 1071-1076
Keywords
Abstract The trajectories of the molecules in an ideal gas and of the ball in a soccer game are compared. The great difference between these motions and some similarities are discussed. This example could be suitable for discussing many concepts in kinetic theory in a way that can be pictured by students for getting a more intuitive understanding. It could be suitable for an introductory course in vacuum techniques or undergraduate courses in kinetic theory of gases. Without going into the slightly harder quantitative results, the analysis presented might be used for introducing some ideas of kinetic theory qualitatively to high school students. © 2010 IOP Publishing Ltd.
