    Superconducting tips of YBa2Cu3O7-x were used to perform point-contact Andreev reflection spectroscopy on half-metallic CrO2 thin films. At 4.2 K, strong suppression of the d-wave Andreev reflection characteristics was observed, consistent with the high spin polarization of CrO2. Our technique...

    The highly inhomogeneous pore morphology of a plasma-enhanced-chemical-vapor-deposited ultralow-k dielectric film (k=2.2) has been revealed using depth-profiled positronium annihilation lifetime spectroscopy (PALS) combined with progressive etch back of the film surface. The film is found to...

    The electro-optical response of calcium barium niobate ferroelectric thin films is characterized using a single beam setup in reflection geometry. Clear evidence of a Pockels response together with an r33 coefficient as high as 130 pm/V is found. This large value and the high Curie temperature...

    Measurements of the electro-optic coefficient, r33, of a zwitterionic organic chromophore are reported. Amorphous polycarbonate and chromophore were mixed and spin-processed to obtain host-guest polymer thin films for measurement with a Teng-Man modulation eillipsometer. After poling, the films...
