    In strontium–barium–niobate (SBN) polarization and switching processes under pulsed field differ from those in model ferroelectrics. In most SBN crystals, the polarization changes smoothly with relaxation times up to seconds even under fields strongly exceeding the coercive field....

    Light is intrinsically very difficult to store in a small space. The ability to trap photons for a long time (photon lifetime, Ï„ph) and to slow the propagation of light plays a significant role in quantum information and optical processing. Photonic-crystal cavities with an ultrahigh quality...

    The In-related superfluorescence at 788 nm from Cd0.8Zn0.2Te:In single crystal has been observed and characterized by the time-resolved photoluminescence comparing with undoped Cd0.8Zn0.2Te. The peak intensity scales Nc2 and the emitted pulse width scales 1/Nc, where Nc is the coherent excited...

    A typical nucleation-growth process is considered: a system is quenched into a supersaturated state with a small critical radius r*- and is allowed to nucleate during a finite time interval tn, after which the supersaturation is abruptly reduced to a fixed value with a larger critical radius...

    The effect of deep traps filled by a pulsed electron beam on the dosimetric thermoluminescence (TL) peak at 450 K in anion-deficient aluminum oxide single crystals has been investigated. After filling deep traps, the dosimetric TL peak becomes nonelementary and is characterized by a complex...

    Transparent conducting films of SnO[sub 2] are grown on single-crystal R-Al[sub 2]O[sub 3] substrates by the pulsed electron beam deposition (PED) technique, and their electrical, optical, and microstructural properties are compared with the films grown by pulsed-laser deposition (PLD). In PED,...

    Fourth harmonic generation of a tunable Ti:sapphire laser with a repetition rate of 80 MHz and pulse duration ∼150 fs has been realized in a single pass with an RbBeBOF crystal for the first time. A high average power was obtained which was tunable throughout a wide range from 180 to 232.5...

    Cˇerenkov-type second harmonic generation of femtosecond pulses in random one-dimensional nonlinear photonic crystal of strontium tetraborate is investigated experimentally and theoretically. Sidebands in angular-spectral dependence of generated second harmonic were detected and found to be...

    Model studies of current conduction and breakdown in TiO2 were carried out. Our simulation results indicate that electrical breakdown of TiO2 under multiple-pulsed conditions can occur at lower voltages as compared to quasi-dc biasing. This is in agreement with recent experimental data and is...
