  • Anomalies of a nonequilibrium spinor polariton condensate in a magnetic field 

    Fischer, J.; Brodbeck, S.; Chernenko, A. V.; Lederer, I.; Rahimi-Iman, A.; Amthor, M.; Kulakovskii, V. D.; Worschech, L.; Kamp, M.; Durnev, M.; Schneider, C.; Kavokin, A. V.; Hoefling, S. (2014-03-06) - Journal article
    We observe a strong variation of the Zeeman splitting of exciton polaritons in microcavities when switching between the linear regime, the polariton lasing, and photon lasing regimes. In the polariton lasing regime the ...
  • Anomalous change in dielectric constant of CaCu3Ti4O12 under violet-to-ultraviolet irradiation 

    Masingboon, C.; Eknapakul, T.; Suwanwong, S.; Buaphet, P.; Nakajima, H.; Mo, S. -K.; Thongbai, P.; King, P. D. C.; Maensiri, S.; Meevasana, W. (2013-05-20) - Journal article
    The influence of light illumination on the dielectric constant of CaCu3Ti4O12 (CCTO) polycrystals is studied in this work. When exposed to 405-nm laser light, a reversible enhancement in the room temperature capacitance ...
  • Anomalous change in leakage and displacement currents after electrical poling on lead-free ferroelectric ceramics 

    Borkar, H.; Tomar, M.; Gupta, V.; Scott, James Floyd; Kumar, A. (2015-09-21) - Journal article
    We report the polarization, displacement current, and leakage current behavior of a trivalent nonpolar cation (Al3+) substituted lead free ferroelectric (Na0.46Bi0.46-xAlxBa0.08)TiO3 (NBAT-BT) (x = 0, 0.05, 0.07 and 0.10) ...
  • Anomalous motions in the Local Group : evidence of a past Milky Way–Andromeda flyby? 

    Banik, Indranil; Zhao, Hongsheng (2016-05-26) - Conference paper
    The expansion of the Universe is not homogeneous. In the Local Group (LG), Andromeda (M31) is approaching the Milky Way (MW) at ~110 km/s. To turn around the cosmic expansion locally to this extent, their combined mass ...
  • Anomalous oxidation of Fe-Si alloys under a low oxygen pressure at 800 °C 

    Liu, L.L.; Guo, Q.Q.; Liu, S.; Ni, C.S.; Niu, Y. (2015) - Journal article
    Abstract The oxidation of three Fe-xSi alloys (x = 5, 9, 13 at.%) under 10−20 atm O2 at 800 °C formed in all cases SiO2 layers. For Fe-5Si this layer broke down and healed up periodically forming an anomalous internal ...
