Publisher: John Wiley and Sons

Journal description

Description physica status solidi was established in 1961. In 1970 it was divided into two series: physica status solidi (a) - applied research and physica status solidi (b) - basic research. The aim of physica status solidi is the rapid publication of important and new results in the field of solid state physics both in fundamental and applied research. The journal publishes Review Articles Original Papers and Rapid Research Notes each volume contains an author index. Each issue of the two series provides 8 thematic categories: structure and lattice properties; surfaces interfaces thin films; nonelectronic transport; electronic states low-dimensional systems; electronic transport superconductivity; magnetic properties magnetic resonances; dielectric and optical properties; device-related phenomena. Series (a) is devoted to applied research and covers materials science and applications including growth and preparation techniques solid-state diagnostics and other methodical aspects solid-state phase transitions device-related phenomena etc. Kurztext physica status solidi wurde 1961 in einer Serie gegründet. 1970 wurde eine Teilung der Zeitschrift in angewandte Forschung (physica status solidi (a) - applied research) und Grundlagenforschung (physica status solidi (b) - basic research) vorgenommen.

    ABSTRACT: The charge carrier mobility is an important parameter that directly affects the performance of organic field-effect transistors. We use copper phthalocyanine (CuPc)-based transistors having crosslinked poly(vinyl alcohol) (cr-PVA) as gate insulator to study the variation of the mobility in CuPc with the distance from the gate insulator interface. By measuring the mobility of the charge carriers flowing along the channel as a function of the minimum thickness of the effective channel near to the transistor source, we demonstrate that the mobility is low near to the interface and shows a maximum at approximately 5 nm from the interface. The mobility dependence on distance from interface can be modified through the inclusion of a poorly conducting thin PEDOT:PSS layer between gate insulator and channel semiconductor, which effectively acts as a gate insulator extension. This procedure is a simple but efficient strategy to improve organic field-effect transistor performance, positively affecting the transconductance and the mobility, which in the studied devices is increased by a factor 20. The improvement is attributed to the suppression of the deleterious consequences of interface charge traps on transport along the channel and is, in principle, a general approach applicable to other organic field-effect transistor materials combinations.

    ABSTRACT: Due to the high strength-to-weight ratio, aluminum alloys are commonly used materials in aircraft and automotive industries. However, the low hardness and wear resistance and high friction coefficient limit their applications. In this study, we deposited a-C:H thin films on 7075 Al alloy substrates without an interlayer by direct current PACVD method. Negative substrate bias was varied to improve the surface mechanical properties. We obtained smooth, homogenous, and well adhered up to 28 μm thick a-C:H layers on the Al alloy substrates. The structural and mechanical properties were analyzed using Raman spectroscopy, SEM, nanoindentation and Pin-on-disc test. Raman spectroscopy showed a higher content of trans(CH)x within the films deposited with low bias and increased sp2 bonding for higher bias depositions. Adhesion test has shown the adhesion grade HF1 to HF4. Coefficient of friction was measured in the range 0.05–0.15 and wear rates of a-C:H covered samples were significantly reduced in comparison to uncovered substrates. The obtained results show a promising potential of the a-C:H as wear resistant coatings for the 7075 Al alloy.

    ABSTRACT: Thin films of cobalt-iron oxides (CoFe2O4) with spinel-type structure were prepared by pulsed-spray evaporation chemical vapor deposition (PSE-CVD) using Fe(acac)3 and Co(acac)3 as precursors. The optimal depositions of CVD-type growth have been established and such growth can be achieved at 400 °C. The obtained films have been systematically characterized in terms of structure (XRD and Raman), surface, and bulk composition (XPS and EDS) as well as morphology (SEM). CoFe2O4 has been successfully tested as an active catalyst toward total oxidation of CO, C3H6, dimethyl ether (DME), and n-C4H8. The results indicate that both the lattice and adsorbed oxygen presented at the surface of the catalyst play determinant roles in the catalytic oxidation process.

    ABSTRACT: An enzyme-based multi-parameter biosensor is developed for monitoring the concentration of formate, D-lactate, and L-lactate in biological samples. The sensor is based on the specific dehydrogenation by an oxidized b-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADþ)-dependent dehydrogenase (formate dehydrogenase, D-lactic dehydrogenase, and L-lactic dehydrogenase, respectively) in combination with a diaphorase from Clostridium kluyveri (EC The enzymes are immobilized on a platinum working electrode by cross-linking with glutaraldehyde (GA). The principle of the determination scheme in case of L-lactate is as follows: L-lactic dehydrogenase (L-LDH) converts L-lactate into pyruvate by reaction with NADþ. In the presence of hexacyanoferrate(III), the resulting reduced b-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) is then regenerated enzymatically by diaphorase. The electrochemical detection is based on the current generated by oxidation of hexacyanoferrate(II) at an applied potential ofþ0.3Vvs. an Ag/ AgCl reference electrode. The biosensor will be electrochemically characterized in terms of linear working range and sensitivity. Additionally, the successful practical application of the sensor is demonstrated in an extract from maize silage.

    ABSTRACT: A novel atmospheric pressure dry texture process is investigated in order to create nanostructures at the c-Si surface. The texture process uses diluted molecular fluorine (F2) as the process gas. F2 is partially dissociated at an elevated temperature before it is delivered to the c-Si wafer. Thermal activation of fluorine occurs on Si wafer surface in a dissociative chemisorption process leading to the removal of Si in the form of volatile SiFx species. The etching process can be controlled to form nanostructures with different aspect ratios and surface reflection values. In this work, we dry textured multicrystalline (mc) Si wafers to reach weighted surface reflection ∼12% in the wavelength range of 250–1200 nm. Nanotextured mc Si wafers were used to prepare p-type Al-BSF solar cells. The fabricated nanostructured cells show a gain in short circuit current (Jsc) of ∼0.5 mA/cm2 and reached a conversion efficiency of 17.3%.
