Heterostructures of topological insulators and ferromagnets offer new opportunities in spintronics and a route to novel anomalous Hall states. In one such structure, EuS/Bi2Se3, a dramatic enhancement of the Curie temperature was recently observed. We performed Raman spectroscopy on a similar set of thin films to investigate the magnetic and lattice excitations. Interfacial strain was monitored through its effects on the Bi2Se3 phonon modes while the magnetic system was probed through the EuS Raman mode. Despite its appearance in bare EuS, the heterostructures lack the corresponding EuS Raman signal. Through numerical calculations we rule out the possibility of Fabry-Perot interference suppressing the mode. Direct measurements of the magnetic system also eliminate room temperature ordering from suppressing the mode. We therefore attribute the absence of a magnetic signal in EuS to a charge transfer with the Bi2Se3. This could provide an additional pathway for manipulating the magnetic, optical, or electronic response of topological heterostructures.


Fully Integrated Ultra-Low Voltage DC-DC Converter with Voltage Quadrupling LC Tank Oscillator for Energy Harvesting Applications
Jayaweera, H. M. P. C.; Tabrizi, Hamed Osouli; Muhtaroglu, Ali (2017-12-02)
This paper presents a novel fully integrated ultra-low voltage DC-DC converter and its multi-stage architecture. DC-DC converter frequency has been analytically derived using model analysis and validated in Cadence environment. The proposed voltage quadrupling LC tank oscillator eliminates the buffer circuits utilized in the traditional DC-DC converter, hence improves the performance metrics such as efficiency and output power capacity. The circuit was designed in 180nm standard CMOS process and was simulat...
Experimental investigation on seismic behavior of eccentric reinforced concrete beam-column-slab connections
Canbolat, Burcu B.; Wight, James K. (2008-03-01)
Design recommendations for reinforced concrete beam-column connections are based on limited experimental studies on the seismic behavior of eccentric connections. To supplement existing information, an experimental study was conducted that focused on the affect of eccentricity of spandrel beams with respect to the column. Specimens included a floor slab and transverse beams to evaluate the effect of slab participation. Test results indicated that including the floor system significantly reduced the negative...
Deformation Classification of Real Non-singular Cubic Threefolds with a Marked Line
Finashin, Sergey (2018-12-19)
© 2019, Institute for Mathematical Sciences (IMS), Stony Brook University, NY. We prove that the space of pairs (X, l) formed by a real non-singular cubic hypersurface X⊂ P 4 with a real line l⊂ X has 18 connected components and give for them several quite explicit interpretations. The first one relates these components to the orbits of the monodromy action on the set of connected components of the Fano surface F R (X) formed by real lines on X. For another interpretation we associate with each of the 18 co...
A Proposal for a method of cultural landscape character assessment: a research on the context, method and results for the cappadocia landscape,Turkey
Tuna Yüncü, Zeynep; Şahin Güçhan, Neriman; Restoration in Department of Architecture (2015)
As a case-based study, the research aims to propose a method to characterise the distinctive, historic dimension of today's urban and rural environment in Cappadocia (Turkey). Its methodology is based on the current practice and the approaches to landscape assessment, protection and management. The method also draws on well-established principles of the Historic Landscape Character Assessment (HLC) methodology first developed and used in Cornwall (UK) – but the characterisation approach have been tested and...
Quantitative approach to rapid seismic evaluation of slab-on-girder steel highway bridges
Dicleli, Murat (1996-01-01)
A quantitative approach follows for developing a methodology for the rapid seismic evaluation and ranking of slab-on-girder steel highway bridges. In the development of this methodology, analytical expressions are introduced to calculate the seismically induced forces and displacements in bridge components, first assuming that damage to bearings is not acceptable and then removing this constraint. In the latter case, the superstructure is assumed to become unrestrained and slide on its supports. The seismic...
