    Small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) was used to characterize the microstructure of a series of activated carbons produced from paper mill sludge using ZnC12. The pores in these carbons are roughly rod-like; their radii and volumes increase with an increase in the amount of activating agent...

    It is shown that the decay character of the phonon spectrum in superfluid helium is a consequence of the analyticity and parity of the boson self-energy as a function of energy and momentum. Previous self-consistent numerical calculations have shown that because of the strong interaction between...

    Zn(CN)2 is known to have an isotropic negative thermal expansion (NTE) coefficient (about -51×10-6 K-1) over 10–370 K that is twice as large as that of ZrW2O8. We have measured the pressure dependence of the phonon spectra up to 30 meV from a polycrystalline sample of Zn(CN)2 at...

    The phonon dispersion in RB12 ( R = Yb, Lu) systems is studied in detail using inelastic neutron scattering over a wide range of energies (up to 55 meV). It is demonstrated that the main features of the lattice dynamics in the RB12 crystals can be described in terms of a simple model of force...

    We report inelastic neutron scattering measurements of the phonon spectra in a pure powder sample of the multiferroic material BiFeO3. A high-temperature range was covered to unravel the changes in the phonon dynamics across the Néel (TN ∼ 650 K) and Curie (TC ∼ 1100 K)...

    We report for the first time the complete phonon dispersion curves for Americium telluride (AmTe) using a breathing shell models (BSM) to establish their predominant ionic nature. The results obtained in the present study show the general features of the phonon spectrum. We could not compare our...
