Low-frequency noise in spin valve sensors
Low frequency noise in giant magnetoresistive spin valves has been studied as a means of optimizing signal to noise ratios and characterizing device performance. The devices studied were sputter deposited NiFe/Cu/NiFe/FeMn ...
Longitudinal recording on FePt and FePtX (X = B, Ni) intermetallic compounds
Near field recording on high coercivity FePt intermetallic compound media using a high Bsat write element was investigated. Untextured FePt media were prepared by magnetron sputtering on ZrO2 disks at a substrate temperature ...
Investigating the electronic properties of carbon nanostructures with scanning tunneling microscopy
Utilizing the scanning tunneling microscope, the electronic and structural properties of a variety of carbon based nanostructures, are explored. Among these, threefold electron scattering on graphite generated by vacancies ...
Experimental demonstration of all-optical CDMA using bipolar codes
Fiber optic networks capable of supporting a large pool of subscribers, many simultaneous users, and high data rates are receiving heightened interest as solutions to a growing communications need. The experiments reported ...
