Combined Spectroscopy and Electrical Characterization of La: BaSnO3 Thin Films and Heterostructures
For La-doped BaSnO3 thin films grown by pulsed laser deposition, we combine chemical surface characterization and electronic transport studies to probe the evolution of electronic states in the band structure for different La-doping content. Systematic analyses of spectroscopic data based on fitting the core electron line shapes help to unravel the composition of the surface as well as the dynamics associated with increasing doping.

Computational molecular structure analysis,electronic properties of sudan dye doped thiourea barium chloride photonic crystals
Sudan dye doped Thiourea Barium Chloride (STBC) crystals were grown by slow evaporation from aqueous solution and slow cooling (0.1oC/ day). The growth was carried out for 21 days by keeping the bath at a temperature of 39oC. Optimal molecular structures are explored by DFT / B3LYP method with 6-311G (d,p) based synthesis.

Nanoscale Fabrication of Graphene by Hydrogen-Plasma Etching
Graphene is attracting vast interest due to its superior electronic and mechanical properties. However, the structure and electronic properties of its edge are often neglected, although they are important for nanoscale devices because the edge ratio becomes larger by decreasing the device size. In this study, we suggest a way to fabricate graphene with atomically aligned zigzag edges by applying the hydrogen-plasma etching (HPE) technique.

Quantum Dot Source-Drain Transport Response at Microwave Frequencies
Quantum dots are frequently used as charge sensitive devices in low temperature experiments to probe electric charge in mesoscopic conductors where the current running through the quantum dot is modulated by the nearby charge environment.

Superconductivity Induced Ferromagnetism In The Presence of Spin-Orbit Coupling
We investigate the behavior of magnetic impurities placed on the surface of superconductor thin
films with spin-orbit coupling. Our study reveals long-range interactions between the impurities,
which decay according to a power law, mediated by the supercurrents. Importantly, these interactions possess a ferromagnetic component when considering the influence of the electromagnetic field,
leading to the parallel alignment of the magnetic moments in the case of two impurities.

Synopset: multiscale visual abstraction set for explanatory analysis of dna nanotechnology simulations
We propose a new abstraction set (SynopSet) that has a continuum of visual representations for the
explanatory analysis of molecular dynamics simulations (MDS) in the DNA nanotechnology domain.
By re-purposing the commonly used progress bar and designing novel visuals, as well as transforming
the data from the domain format to a format that better fits the newly designed visuals, we compose
this new set of representations.
