    Epitaxial GdSi[sub 1.7] layers have been produced by channeled ion beam synthesis. The crystalline quality improves with implant dose and substrate temperature. The latter determines the extent of dynamic annealing whereas both factors are instrumental in driving precipitate growth. This, in...

    The threshold switching of Ge2Sb2Te5 (GST) films for phase change random access memory applications was investigated by measuring the variation in the threshold voltage (VT) with the crystallinity of the GST films and photon energy absorption spectra. As the GST film was amorphized, VT increased...

    We have observed the existence of medium-range order in amorphous silicon with the fluctuation electron microscopy technique. We hypothesize that this structure is produced during the highly nonequilibrium deposition process, during which nuclei are formed and subsequently buried. We test this...
