 2020-12-3111:28 [FZJ-2020-05304] Preprint Carmona-Loaiza, J. M. Towards Reflectivity profile inversion through Artificial Neural Networks The goal of Specular Neutron and X-ray Reflectometry is to infer materials Scattering Length Density (SLD) profiles from experimental reflectivity curves. This paper focuses on investigating an original approach to the ill-posed non-invertible problem which involves the use of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN).

Designed as cutouts, flux barriers reduce the mechanical strength of the rotor construction.

A thorough understanding of the individual components, such as the ion conducting membrane and the electrode layers, can be obtained with scattering techniques on atomit to molecular length scales.

Providing a means of direct reciprocal space mapping, GISANS and OSR reveal a magnetic modulation perpendicular to the films under magnetic fields parallel and perpendicular to the film, where additional polarized neutron reflectometry (PNR) and magnetization measurements are in excellent agreement with the literature [...] External link: Fulltext 2019-01-2216:03 [IMPULSE-2019-00057] Preprint Haslbeck, F. ; Säubert, S. ; Seifert, M. ; et al Interplay of Itinerant and Localized Spin Fluctuations in the Ferromagnetic Superconductor UGe$_2$ Microscopic coexistence of ferromagnetism and unconventional superconductivity renders UGe$_2$ a candidate for spin-triplet superconductivity. To avoid pair-breaking, spin-triplet superconductivity is mediated by longitudinal spin fluctuations promoted by magnetic Ising anisotropy.

Extended studies and theories on non-spherical particles find a more complicated behavior, but still a steady increase.

The dynamical and structural routes followed by the system during such crossovers are however not universal and appear to be related to intrinsic kinetic properties of the liquid.

The nonpolar orthorhombic lattice (space group $Pnma$) undergoes isostructural transition at the magnetic transition temperature $T_N$ ($\sim$600 K).

In-situ observation of temperature-dependent segregation of Ni adatoms on oriented Pd surfaces We report the direct observation of the in-situ temperature-dependent surface segregation of Ni adatoms on single crystalline Pd surfaces using Positron annihilation induced Auger Electron Spectroscopy (PAES). For this study, a single atomic layer of Ni was grown on Pd with the crystallographic orientations Pd(111), Pd(110) and Pd(100). [...] Restricted: PDF;
