    Rapid thermal annealing has been used to electrically activate Si-implanted InP:Fe. A two-step annealing cycle in which the short (5 s) high-temperature step is followed by a relatively long (25–60 s) 100 °C lower temperature step gave higher activation and carrier mobility than the...

    A high quality, dense Bi-Pb-Sr-Ca-Cu-O superconductor has been successfully synthesized by rapid thermal melt processing. Conventionally sintered pellets were melted at 1200 °C, cooled rapidly, and then annealed. As-melted samples exhibited semiconductor behavior, which upon annealing became...
