In this study scientists have reported the observation of an electronic state transition in highly crystalline antiferromagnetic CrN films with strain and reduced dimensionality.
A group of scientists have found a new scheme for single-pixel imaging with neutrons (SPIN) of real objects, with spatial and spectral resolutions of 100 μm and 0.4%, respectively. Meanwhile low illumination down to 1000 neutron counts per frame pattern was achieved.
Hong Kong University's Prof. Huang Mingxin has worked with the CSNS General Purposed Powder Diffracterometer (GPPD) team to systematically characterize and study a series of samples.
SANS researchers collaborated to test solution and solid composite membrane samples, and confirmed that the conformation of each branch of Daisy chain tree molecule folds after stimulation, resulting in a controllable and reversible size change of the whole.
Polyamorphs are often observed in amorphous matters, and a representative example is the reentrant glass transition in colloid systems.
Complex oxides with tunable structures have many fascinating properties, though high-quality complex oxide epitaxy with precisely controlled composition is still out of reach.
A group pf scientists quantify the nanometer-thick Y3Fe5O12 films epitaxially grown on Gd3Ga5O12 with a magnetic dead layer as thin as about 1.2nm by polarized neutron reflectivity and magnetization measurements.
Monodispersed hairy nanocomposites with typical 2 nm (isophthalic acid)24Cu24 metal–organic polyhedra (MOP) as a core protected by 24 polymer chains with controlled narrow molecular weight distribution has been probed by imaging and scattering studies for the heterogeneity of polymers in the nanocomposites and the confinement effect the MOPs imposing on anchored polymers.
Helium behavior in W/Ni bilayer nanocomposite was investigated by neutron reflectometry, transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and density functional theory (DFT) calculation.
The magnetic reversal behavior of a ferromagnet (FM) coupled through an FeMn antiferromagnet (AF) to a pinned ferromagnet has been investigated by polarized neutron reflectivity measurements.
