Starting with the basic equations of number and energy balance along with charge neutrality it is shown that the charge on the particle versus irradiance of incident radiation plot in a complex plasma, illuminated by radiation with periodic irradiance displays hysteresis.

    The behavior of the effective shear modulus Gef and internal friction in Si is comprehensively studied in the temperature range in which an anomalous hysteresis Gef (T) exists. It is shown that this hysteresis is caused by mobile dislocations and that the pinning of these dislocations by...

    The theory of phase-locked oscillations in a backward-wave oscillator with strong end reflections is developed. Numerical results demonstrate that the locking bandwidth of such a device phase-locked by a prebunched electron beam can be twice the bandwidth of a resonator formed by a waveguide...

    The transient charge trapping and detrapping of a thick SiO2/Al2O3 gate oxide device has been evaluated by single pulse Id-Vg (PIV). During the period of a single pulse, we observed fast electron detrapping. This occurred through the gate electrode, causing a counterclockwise PIV hysteresis...

    The resistive switching phenomenon in MgO-based tunnel junctions is attributed to the effect of charged defects inside the barrier. The presence of electron traps in the MgO barrier, which can be filled and emptied, locally modifies the conductance of the barrier and leads to the resistive...

    We investigate the time-dependent dynamical behavior of electron transport in AlGaAs/GaAs double-barrier structures under a high-frequency radiation field.
