    Several studies in recent years have demonstrated that upper-division students struggle with the mathematics of thermodynamics. This paper presents a task analysis based on several expert attempts to solve a challengin ...

    The thermal conductivity, measured by the 3ω method, of amorphous films of Al₂P₁.₂O₆ (AlPO) deposited on Si substrates by an all-aqueous spin-coating technique is 0.93(3) Wm⁻¹K⁻¹. The thermal conductivity of a degenera ...
  • Vielma, J. M.; Schneider, G. (American Institute of Physics Publishing, 2013-11-07)
    A shell model for ferroelectric perovskites fitted to results of first-principles density functional theory (DFT) calculations is strongly affected by approximations made in the exchange-correlation functional within D ...

    We demonstrate remarkably strong nonlinear terahertz (THz) effects in an intrinsic GaAs wafer patterned with a nanometer-width slot antenna array. The antenna near-field reaches 20 MV/cm due to the huge field enhancement ...

    The p-type semiconductor Cu₃PSe₄ has recently been established to have a direct band gap of 1.4 eV and an optical absorption spectrum similar to GaAs [Foster et al., Appl. Phys. Lett. 99, 181903 (2011)], suggesting a p ...
