Direct magnetic imaging of ferromagnetic domain structures by room temperature scanning hall probe microscopy using a bismuth micro-hall probe

Oral, Ahmet
A bismuth micro-Hall probe sensor with an integrated scanning tunnelling microscope tip was incorporated into a room temperature scanning Hall probe microscope system and successfully used for the direct magnetic imaging of microscopic domains of low coercivity perpendicular garnet thin films and demagnetized strontium ferrite permanent magnets. At a driving current of 800 muA, the Hall coefficient, magnetic field sensitivity and spatial resolution of the Bi probe were 3.3 x 10(-4) Omega /G, 0.38 G/root Hz and similar to 2.8 mum, respectively. The room temperature magnetic field sensitivity of the Bi probe was comparable to that of a semiconducting 1.2 mum GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure micro-Hall probe, which exhibited a value of 0.41 G/root Hz at a maximum driving current of 2 muA.

An ultra-high sensitive room temperature scanning Hall probe microscope (RT-SHPM) system incorporating a GaAs/AlGaAs micro-Hall probe was used for the direct magnetic imaging of localized magnetic field fluctuations in very close proximity to the surface of ferromagnetic materials. The active area, Hall coefficient and field sensitivity of the Hall probe were 0.8 mum x 0.8 mum, 0.3 Omega /G and 0.04G/root Hz, respectively. The use of a semiconducting Hall probe sensor enabled measurements in the presence of...
Interfacial and structural properties of sputtered HfO2 layers
AYGÜN ÖZYÜZER, GÜLNUR; Yıldız, İlker (AIP Publishing, 2009-07-01)
Magnetron sputtered HfO2 layers formed on a heated Si substrate were studied by spectroscopic ellipsometer (SE), x-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) depth profiling techniques. The results show that the formation of a SiOx suboxide layer at the HfO2/Si interface is unavoidable. The HfO2 thickness and suboxide formation are highly affected by the growth parameters such as sputtering power, O-2/Ar gas ratio during sputtering, sputtering time, ...
Spectroscopic study and numerical simulation of low-pressure radio-frequency capacitive discharge with argon downstream
Tanisli, Murat; Rafatov, İsmail; Sahin, Neslihan; Mertadam, Sercan; Demir, Suleyman (Canadian Science Publishing, 2017-02-01)
In this study, the characteristic properties and plasma parameters of capacitive radio frequency (RF) argon (Ar) discharge and supplementary discharge at low pressure are investigated with optical emission spectroscopy (OES). The wavelengths of spectral lines from OES are obtained between 650-900 nm. Using OES lines and related experimental data, the electron temperatures for different RF power, flow, and measurement periods are determined. Eventually, the properties of plasma including the electron tempera...
Photovoltaic Effect and Space Charge Limited Current Analysis in TlGaTe2 Crystals
QASRAWI, ATEF FAYEZ HASAN; Yaseen, T. R.; Eghbariy, B.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences, 2012-07-01)
Anisotropic space charge limited current density analysis and photovoltaic effect in TlGaTe2 single crystals has been investigated. It is shown that, above 330 K, the crystal exhibits intrinsic and extrinsic type of conductivity along (c-axis) and perpendicular (a-axis) to the crystal's axis, respectively. The current density (J) is found to be space charge limited. It is proportional to the square and three halves power of voltage (V) along the a- and c-axis, respectively. Along the a-axis and at sufficien...
Towards Understanding the Origin of Cosmic-Ray Electrons
Aguilar, M.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2019-03-13)
Precision results on cosmic-ray electrons are presented in the energy range from 0.5 GeV to 1.4 TeV based on 28.1 x 10(6) electrons collected by the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station. In the entire energy range the electron and positron spectra have distinctly different magnitudes and energy dependences. The electron flux exhibits a significant excess starting from 42.1(-5.2)(+5.4) GeV compared to the lower energy trends, but the nature of this excess is different from the posit...
