ABSTRACT
Electrical resistivity of PrOs4Sb12 was measured at temperatures down to 20 mK and in fields to 18 T. The resistivity is dominated by low-energy crystalline electric-field effects. Our analysis of the resistivity in magnetic fields provides a support for the heavy fermion state.

    We have measured the low-temperature magnetoresistance (MR) of single cobalt nanowires of various lengths, thicknesses, and widths prepared by electron-beam lithography. The MR measurements exhibit peaks at the coercive fields Hc where Hc increases with decreasing wire width. From the shape of...

    Nanocrystalline La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 films with thickness t=10-60 nm were grown on LaAlO3(100) substrates by radio-frequency magnetron sputtering. Their electrical resistivity and low-field magnetoresistance (MR) were measured. Metal-insulator transitions occur above 275 K for films with t=20-60 nm,...

    Breakdown characteristics of the magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJ) with different junction areas of S = 200 μm[SUP2] and S = 0.5 μm[SUP2] are investigated under constant voltage stress. The breakdown process is found to be quite different for the two junction areas. For the large junctions...

    We studied the effect of different cooling-field strengths on the exchange bias by measuring the angular-dependent sheet resistance and the giant magnetoresistance of exchange-biased spin valves using a PtMn antiferromagnetic and a synthetic antiferromagnetic layer. When we annealed the spin...
