Angular dependence of power spectra is measured for tunnel-type spin-transfer oscillators by changing the direction of the external field in the plane. The oscillation frequency shows the red shift with increasing the current in the case that the field directions are away from the hard axis of the free layer. The frequency shift changes from red to blue at a specific direction near the hard axis, where the linewidth is much reduced. These results are explained by taking into account the nonlinearity arising from the in-plane anisotropy as well as that arising from the demagnetizing effect.

    Context. Since the early 1990s, gamma ray bursts (GRB) have been accepted to be of extra-Galactic origin because of the isotropic distribution observed by BATSE and the redshifts observed via absorption line spectroscopy. Nevertheless, upon closer examination at least one case turned out to be...

    Using adiabatic cosmological simulations of the intracluster plasma, we follow the evolution of two symmetric cold fronts developing in the remnant of a violent z=0.3 massive cluster merger. The simulated cold fronts are very similar to those recently singled out in X-ray observations of the...

    A number of gamma-ray bursts have spectra that are accurately fit by a Compton attenuated power-law spectrum. One free parameter in this spectral model is the cosmological redshift of the gamma-ray burst. From the fitting of this model to burst spectra observed with BATSE, values of z of order...

    Tunnel diode oscillators have been used in many types of experiments that measure the properties of materials. We present the details of an apparatus that extend these tunnel diode techniques to measure the properties of materials in pulsed magnetic fields. In the most common version of this...

    We study the anisotropic in-plane strain in M-plane GaN films on LiAlO2 by using photoreflectance, photoluminescence, Raman, and time-resolved pump-and-probe spectroscopy. We find a partial and anisotropic relaxation of these highly strained films under intense optical pumping. The strain...

    It is shown that the M�ssbauer magnetic hfs spectra of a superparamagnetic particle are cardinally affected by the rotation of its magnetic moment about the magnetic anisotropy field. This rotation renormalizes the nuclear g factors and qualitatively transforms the spectra. In particular,...

    This work focuses on magnetic tunnel junctions with a polycrystalline MgO barrier, prepared by plasma oxidation.
