The relationship between magnetoelastic anisotropy and propagation properties of forward volume spin waves in single-crystalline yttrium iron garnet films grown on three garnet substrates was experimentally demonstrated. This facilitates the design of spin wave integrated circuits.
Scientists demonstrated that scanning photocurrent microscopy could provide the optoelectronic information needed to improve the performance of devices for power generation, communications, data storage, and lighting.
Researchers applied a technique using 3D X-ray tomography of an electrode to better understand what is happening on the inside of a lithium ion battery and ultimately build batteries with more storage capacity and longer life.
Newly-developed nanovalves allow the flow of individual nanoparticles in liquids to be controlled in tiny channels. This is of interest for lab-on-a-chip applications such as in materials science and biomedicine.
