    Room temperature CEMS spectra and field-cooled and zero field-cooled hysteresis loops have been measured on oxidized iron films of 100 nm thickness. The iron films were sputtered on a Si substrate, while the substrate temperature, T s, was kept at 200 K and 300 K, and subsequently oxidized. The...

    The onset of chemical and magnetic order in PtMn is accompanied by a large increase in the resistivity, ρ, contrary to that observed in nonmagnetic or ferromagnetic disorder–order transitions. We attribute this to a giant magnetoresistance like magnetic scattering off the...

    Electromechanical hysteresis loop measurements in piezoresponse force microscopy (PFM) [piezoresponse force spectroscopy (PFS)] have emerged as a powerful technique for probing ferroelectric switching behavior on the nanoscale. Interpretation of PFS data requires the relationship between the...

    InP:Al was grown by the liquid phase epitaxy method on InP (100)substrates. X-ray diffraction confirmed the epitaxial growth along (100) of AlInP. Photoluminescence spectra showed the evident effect of Al content. Ferroelectric characterization of the sample revealed a clear hysteresis in its...
