    In the framework of the t-J[sub z] we discuss localized spin polarons for various original hole arrangements in different spin backgrounds. According to the so-called string picture we assume that local destruction in the magnetic structure caused by hole motion tends to localize holes and acts...

    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...

    A simple model for an electron in two dimensions interacting with an elastic distortion field shows interesting polaron-like behaviors. The model consists of a single tightbinding electron in a classical polarization field. The distortion potential φ and electron amplitude ψ evolve by...

    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...

    A variational approach is adopted to study the intermediate-coupling polaron for bulk III-V nitride semiconductors with wurtzite crystalline structure in the long-wavelength limit based on the macroscopic dielectric continuum model and the uniaxial model. The polaronic self-trapping energy and...

    A phonon structure in the photoluminescence of EuTe was discovered, with a well-defined zero-phonon emission line (ZPL). The ZPL redshifts linearly with the intensity of applied magnetic field, indicating spin relaxation of the photoexcited electron, and saturates at a lower magnetic field than...

    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...
