  Zinc oxide thin films were deposited by RF magnetron sputtering on p-type (100) silicon and glass substrates held at room temperature by varying the oxygen partial pressures and the optimized films was annealing at different temperatures. The deposition rate of the films was decreased from 5.8 to 2.5 ...  Read More

Reduced substrate clamping effect and evidence of shape memory behavior in vertically aligned Ni-Mn-In nanorod arrays

Volume 2, Issue 1 , 2017, , Pages 10-15

  Silicon integrated vertically aligned Ni-Mn-In nanorod arrays having ~100 nm length were investigated for shape memory behavior and magnetocaloric effect. The room temperature X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns revealed the (220) oriented pure austenitic cubic phase growth of Ni–Mn–In nanorods. ...  Read More
