We describe a simple strontium vapor cell for laser spectroscopy experiments. Strontium vapor is produced using an electrically heated commercial dispenser source. The sealed cell operates at room temperature, and without a buffer gas or vacuum pump. The cell was characterized using laser spectroscopy, and was found to offer stable and robust operation, with an estimated lifetime of >10 000 h. By changing the dispenser, this technique can be readily extended to other alkali and alkaline earth elements.

    The luminance-applied voltage hysteresis characteristic, so-called memory effect, has been found in the SrS:Ce,K blue-emitting electroluminescent thin-film device. The hysteresis voltage width is about 38 V with 1 kHz pulse drive. The origin of the memory effect is attributable to native defects...

    The studies showed that alkaline-earth metal oxides affect the properties of boron-free enamels differently, in particular, magnesium oxide increases the whiteness of the coatings, and strontium oxide improves their luster only when less than 1% is added, while calcium oxide negatively affects...

    A number of perovskites with A-site alkaline earth chemistries being Ca, Sr, and Ba, and tetravalent cations including Ce, Zr, and Ti are measured for optical band gap and found to vary systematically with tolerance factor and lattice volume within limits defined by the chemistry of the...

    Strontium sorption to amorphous silica and goethite was measured as a function of pH and dissolved strontium and carbonate concentrations at 25°C. Strontium sorption gradually increases from 0 to 100% from pH 6 to 10 for both phases and requires multiple outer-sphere surface complexes to fit...

    Gas sensitivity of Sb-doped SnO2 nanograins co-precipitated respectively from ethanol and de-ionized water has been compared. Gas sensing stability of the Sb-SnO2 from ethanol (SnO2-E) was significantly superior to that of Sb-SnO2 from de-ionized water (SnO2-W): working temperature of sensor...

    We have observed Auger electrons from doubly excited He[sup **](nln[sup ′]l[sup ′]), n=2, 3, and 4, produced by the double-electron transfer processes in the collisions between He[sup 2+] and alkaline earth atoms. From these results, we see that highly excited states such as...
