A representation of the impurity spins and conduction electron spins in teens of these singlet and triplet operators is given by
The numerical results demonstrate that the in-plane boron phonons are strongly coupled to the conduction electrons, providing the large electron-phonon interaction in th is system.
2 The conduction electron density of a stationary current in a metal wire
This is the first time that strong nuclear spin polarisation of a defect atom in a solid is demonstrated at room temperature by spin-polarised conduction electrons.
These "chemical shifts" arise because of the variations in electrostatic screening experienced by core electrons as the valence and conduction electrons are drawn towards or away from the specific atom.
The interaction between conduction electrons and a localized 2-level-system caused by a defect is analyzed in the present work.
This region therefore is depleted of conduction electrons and the surface resistivity of the grain increases.
In graphene, on the other hand, conduction electrons tend to move in lockstep as a single quantum entity.
The high transconductance of the HEMT is the result of confining a substantial fraction of the conduction electrons into a two dimensional electron gas near the heterojunction.
The hybrid nature of surface plasmons (which emerge from the coupling of photons to the collective oscillations of conduction electrons in metals) has allowed an unprecedented control of light at the nanoscale, a regime inaccessible to standard photonic technology.
When nanostructures, such as nanorods, of certain metals are exposed to visible light, the conduction electrons of the metal can be caused to oscillate collectively, absorbing a great deal of the light.
Other theorists countered that the spins of conduction electrons are usually randomly oriented, with every up spin canceled by a down spin.
Since the device must fully recover to its original nonconductive state before the next light pulse can be resolved, the diode's detection speed depends on how quickly the conduction electrons can be swept from the silicon film.
Au(III)-Pt(III) or Cu(III)-Ni(III) ) will be chosen in order to put into evidence the role of the paramagnetic centres and their possible interplay with conduction electrons.
