Processing and characterization of copper-fullerene systems
Nanocrystalline copper-fullerene thin films were simultaneously co-deposited by copper evaporation and fullerene sublimation, and annealed over a range from 200 to 800$\sp\circ$C for 8 hours in flowing argon. Scanning ...
Equilibrium and diffusion studies of metal-hydrogen systems
Several new methods and models have been developed pertaining to equilibrium properties of hydrogen in random binary substitutional alloys at room and lower temperatures, describing both statistics and kinetics of hydrogen ...
Magnetic recording on co-alloy perpendicular multilayers
Perpendicular recording has the potential to achieve high-density data storage. As the linear density approaches to the superparamagnetic limit, traditional longitudinal recording may give way to perpendicular recording. ...
Accelerating the Arnoldi iteration: Theory and practice
The Arnoldi iteration is widely used to compute a few eigenvalues of a large sparse or structured matrix. However, the method may suffer from slow convergence when the desired eigenvalues are not dominant or well separated. ...
Evolution of friction and wear in amorphous carbon thin films
The main goal of this study is to acquire a deeper understanding of the friction and wear evolution during contact sliding on amorphous carbon overcoats. Therefore, hydrogenated and nitrogenated amorphous carbon films were ...
