A correlation between uncompensated (UC) antiferromagnetic (AF) spins and exchange bias (EB) strength was investigated for Mn74Ir26/Co100-xFex bilayers. The EB strength had a maximum at x=25 at. %, and the x-ray magnetic circular dichroism of Mn, representing the UC-AF spins, changed systematically in sign and magnitude with respect to x. A linear correlation was found between the EB strength and the root mean square magnitude of the UC-Mn spins. The hidden parameter connecting these two quantities might be exchange coupling energy at the heterointerface, which varies as a function of the ferromagnetic layer composition.

    As an origin of degradation of remnant polarization in Pt/BaTiO3/Pt capacitor structure, an interfacial layer formed at the interface of BaTiO3 film and a Pt bottom electrode is considered. BaTiO3 films were deposited on two types of bottom electrodes (La0.5Sr0.5CoO3 and Pt) by the radio...

    Propagation of light through a thin flat metallic screen containing a hole of twisted shape is sensitive to whether the incident wave is left or right circularly polarized. The transmitted light accrues a component with handedness opposite to the incident wave. The efficiency of polarization...
