Interest exists in utilizing boron (B) wall conditioning of fusion tokamaks containing tungsten (W) plasma facing components, in order to improve plasma confinement. To understand the interactions of B with W surfaces, first-principles density functional theory calculations have been performed to model the adsorption, diffusion, and solution of B near the W(100), W(110), and W(111) surfaces. The results show that B within a distance of 0.6 nm above the surfaces is adsorbed to the surfaces withou...
Electro-optic modulators are an indispensable part of photonic communication systems, largely dictating the achievable transmission rate. Recent advances in materials and fabrication/processing techniques have brought new elements and a renewed dynamic to research on optical modulation. Motivated by the new opportunities, this Perspective reviews the state of the art in integrated electro-optic modulators, covering a broad range of contemporary materials and integrated platforms. To provide a be...
We compare various sputtering simulation methods to experimental results in both the low energy (<1 keV) and high energy (≥1 keV) impact regimes for argon ions impacting a pure copper substrate at normal incidence. Our results indicate that for high energy impacts, both binary collision approximation (BCA) and molecular dynamics methods can be used to generate reasonable predictions for the yield and energy distribution of the sputtered atoms. We also find reasonable agreement between the theore...

Ultra-wide bandgap semiconductors with exceptional advantages have potential use in ultrahigh power, ultrahigh frequency devices, and other applications. In this paper, a series of high-quality Nb-doped ZrxSn1−xO2 (Nb:ZrxSn1−xO2) alloy epitaxial films were prepared on c-plane sapphire substrates by pulsed laser deposition. A greater proportion of Zr successfully widened the optical bandgap of SnO2 up to 4.70 from 4.28 eV. Interestingly, although Nb is a common n-type dopant for SnO2, the conduct...
Lead-free relaxor ferroelectrics are promising candidates for next-generation piezoelectric high-power devices, such as ultrasonic motors, transformers, and therapeutic ultrasonics. These applications require hard ferroelectrics with a broad operating temperature range. Recently, acceptor Zn2+ doping and composite formation with ZnO were proposed to induce hardening in Na1/2Bi1/2TiO3–BaTiO3 and simultaneously increase the depolarization temperature. Here, these two strategies are compared by stu...

A plasma-assisted atomic layer deposition system employing a microwave surfatron plasma was developed and characterized by spatially resolved Langmuir probe diagnostics and optical emission spectroscopy. The deposition process was applied on TiO2 thin films prepared on Si wafers. The surfatron is equipped with a small ring electrode serving as a source of weak radio frequency plasma helping with fast and reliable ignition of the discharge in molecular gas. Results evaluated in the pure argon pla...

Defects in SiC have shown tremendous capabilities for quantum technology-based applications, making it necessary to achieve on-demand, high-concentration, and uniform-density defect ensembles. Here, we utilize 100 MeV Ag swift heavy ion irradiation on n-type and semi-insulating 4H-SiC for the controlled generation of the defects that have attracted a lot of attention. Photoluminescence spectroscopy shows strong evidence of V Si emitters in semi-insulating 4H-SiC. Additionally, irradiation genera...

Vanadium dioxide is an unusual material that undergoes a first-order Metal–Insulator Transition (MIT) at 340 K, attracting considerable interest for its intrinsic properties and its potential applications. However, the nature of MIT has not been fully determined. Variants of density functional theory (DFT) have been widely used to study the MIT in pure and doped VO2. A full description of MIT is complicated by several related factors such as V–V dimerization, magnetic properties, and spin correl...

Ice-templating is a powerful technique that exploits self-organized ice structures formed during the freezing of colloidal suspensions as templates to fabricate microstructured materials. However, the active introduction of reactivity to the ice-templating process remains limited. In this study, a Au-TiO2 composite film composed of gold and titanium oxide (TiO2) was fabricated on a frozen aqueous colloidal suspension, using cryoplasma to introduce reactive species to the frozen suspension. Auric...

We investigate the propagation behavior of the low-frequency topological interface state of the flexural wave in the locally resonant metastructure and analyze the tunability of the sub-wavelength interface states by the piezoelectric shunting circuit. One homogeneous thin beam is periodically attached with local resonant beams, which connect shunted piezoelectric actuators. The folding band obtained by merging two primitive unit cells into one new element can generate a Dirac point below the lo...
