 2017-04-0708:43 [PUBDB-2017-01533] Journal Article et al Unraveling Local Spin Polarization of Zhang-Rice Singlet in Lightly Hole-Doped Cuprates Using High-Energy Optical Conductivity Physical review / B 95(16), 165108 (2017) [10.1103/PhysRevB.95.165108]   Unrevealing local magnetic and electronic correlations in the vicinity of charge carriers is crucial in order tounderstand rich physical properties in correlated electron systems. Here, using high-energy optical conductivity(up to 35 eV) as a function of temperature and polarization, we observe a surprisingly strong spin polarizationof the local spin singlet with enhanced ferromagnetic correlations between Cu spins near the doped holesin lightly hole-doped $La_{1.95}Sr_{0.05}Cu_{0.95}Zn_{0.05}O_4$.

Recently, there has been a high demand for harder and tougher optical windows that are able to endure severe conditions [...] OpenAccess: PDF; 2017-02-1412:10 [PUBDB-2017-00957] Book/Report/Dissertation / PhD Thesis et al Automatic reduction of large x-ray fluorescence data-sets applied to XAS and mapping experiments [DESY-THESIS-2016-007] DESY-THESIS 130 pp., (2017) [10.3204/PUBDB-2017-00957]   In this thesis two automatic methods for the reduction of large fluorescence data sets are presented.The first method is proposed in the framework of BioXAS experiments. The challenge of this experiment is to deal with samples in ultra dilute concentrations where the signal-to-background ratio is low.

The origin of the bands is interpreted using comparative analysis with isostructural ZnWO$_{4}$ tungstate and based on the results of recent first-principles band structure calculations.

These high-pressure generations were achieved by combining the following pressure-generation techniques: (1) precisely aligned guide block systems, (2) high hardness of tungsten carbide, (3) tapering of second-stage anvil faces, (4) materials with high bulk modulus in a high-pressure cell, and (5) high heating efficiency..

Here, we investigated strength and toughness of nanocrystalline stishovite by using micro-cantilever beam specimens of different sizes. [...] Published on 2016-11-15.
