(2018-12) - Journal articleWe investigate the topological transition that takes place in spin-ice systems when a polarising field is applied along a principal axis. In particular, we analyse a two dimensional spin-ice model; we find that the topological ...
(2018-12-14) - Journal articleAlthough the conservation of momentum is a fundamental law in physics, its constraints are not fulfilled for wave propagation at material boundaries, where incident waves give rise to evanescent field distributions. Whilst ...
(2018-03) - Journal articleWe report optical enhancement in polarization and dielectric constant near room temperature in Pb0.6Li0.2Bi0.2Zr0.2Ti0.8O3 (PLBZT) electro-ceramics; these are doubly substituted members of the most important commercial ...
The fifteenth data release of the Sloan Digital Sky Surveys : first release of MaNGA derived quantities, data visualization tools and stellar library (2018-12-01) - Journal articleTwenty years have passed since first light for the Sloan Digital SkySurvey (SDSS). Here, we release data taken by the fourth phase of SDSS(SDSS-IV) across its first three years of operation (July 2014-July2017). This is ...
