    The pseudogap behavior of spectral function A( k, ω) of charge carriers is considered in the weak doping regime for a 2D Kondo lattice with a strong spin-hole antiferromagnetic interaction. The scattering of carriers is described in terms of a local polaron according to the irreducible Green...

    Spin-dependent transport measurement in 3-hexadecyl pyrrole (3HDP) with a CoFe layer and the current-in-plane geometry is reported. Transport properties indicate the CoFe layers are discontinuous when their thicknesses are smaller than 6 nm. The temperature dependence of the conductance suggests...

    The aim of these lectures is to describe theoretical ideas concerning spin-polaron scenario for the charged excitations in a two-dimensional antiferromagnet in normal state. The distinctive feature of our approach consists in treating a local polaron (not a bare hole) as a zero approximation for...

    In a polymer chain, an extra electron or hole distorts the chain to form a charged polaron, which is the charge carrier being responsible for conductivity. When an intermediate-strength electric field is applied, the polaron will be accelerated for a short time and then move at a constant...

    Abstract   The electron transport in inhomogenous quasi-one-dimensional conducting channels on the liquid helium surface are studied in the temperature range 0.6–1.5 K. Inhomogeneities are created by charging the substrate on which the channels are formed. It...

    The energies of the electron and hole weak-coupling polarons are determined in quantum rings of finite width in a uniform magnetic field. It is shown that polaron corrections exhibit oscillatory behavior as a function of a magnetic field. The effect of polaron corrections on the absorption and...

    The renormalization of the mass of an electron interacting with many ions of a lattice via the long-range (Fröhlich) electron-phonon interaction and optical absorption of electrons are studied at zero temperature. Ions are assumed to be isotropic three-dimensional oscillators. The optical...

    A tunable conductivity has been achieved by controllable substitution of an ultraviolet light activated electronic conductor. The transparent conducting oxide system H-doped Ca12-xMgxAl14O33 (x=0,0.1,0.3,0.5,0.8,1.0) presents a conductivity that is strongly dependent on the substitution level...

    Polaron properties are studied in bulk wurtzite nitride ternary mixed crystals AxB1-xN (A, B?=?Al, Ga, In) with the use of a dielectric continuum Fröhlich-like electron-phonon interaction Hamiltonian. The polaronic self-trapping energy and effective mass are analytically derived by taking the...
