Structural and Magneto-Optical Properties of Co-doped ZnO Thin Films Prepared by Sol-Gel Method

, , , , , , ,
Co doped ZnO thin film has promising potential for spintronic devices. Theoretical calculations predict ferromagnetism for Diluted Magnetic Semiconductors (DMS): ZnO doped with transition metals (Fe,Co,Ni). We have investigated Co (x=0.05-0.30) doped ZnO (Zn1-xCoxO), films [...]

Fabrication and Characterization of Nanoscale Heating Sources (“Nanoheaters”) for Nanomanufacturing

, , , , , , , , , ,
In macroscale manufacturing, active use of heat to alter the geometry, structure and properties of solids is central to material removal, deposition, joining, shaping, and transformation processes. However, traditional heat sources encroach difficulties with fine [...]

Mechanical and magnetic properties comparison between elastomer composites based on nickel nanoparticles and nanowires as fillers

, , , , , , ,
Applications that utilize magnetic polymer nanocomposites are currently emerging at a high rate. Examples include magnetic actuation in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and medical devices, thermal actuation through electromagnetic power harvesting, and magnetically actuated morphing structures.
