Buckling the equatorial anion plane: octahedral anion distortions in ferroic perovskites and related systems resolved via neutron diffraction

Eric J. Nichols; Steven M. Pilgrim; Scott T. Misture IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control, 2013

A framework for describing anion displacements from perfect octahedra in perovskites has been developed for use with neutron diffraction data sets. We describe the distortions as noncoplanar arrangements, or buckling, of oxygen ions in any central plane of the octahedron, ignoring the central cation. Nonplanar distortions of octahedra have been calculated for perovskite structures contained within the Inorganic Crystal Structure ...


Health Physics Aspects of 20- to 40-MeV Linac Operations

Lester A. Slaback IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 1979

  • Analysis of Neutron Damage in HighTemperature Silicon Carbide JFETs

    Neutron-induced displacement damage effects in n-channel, depletion-mode junction-fleld-effect transistors (JFETs) fabricated on 6H-silicon carbide are reported as a function of temperature from room temperature (RT) to 300°C. The data are analyzed in terms of a refined model that folds in recently reported information on the two-level ionization energy structure of the nitrogen donors. A value of 5 ± 1 cm-3 per n/cm2 is obtained for the deep- level defect introduction rate induced by the neutron irradiation. Due to partial ionization of the donor atoms at RT, the carrier removal rate is a function of temperature, varying from 3.5 cm-1 at RT to 4.75 cm-1 at 300°C. The relative neutron effect on carrier mobility varies with temperature approximately as T-7/2, dropping by an order of magnitude at 300°C compared with the RT effect. The results offer further support for the use of SiC devices in applications which combine high-temperature and severe radiation environments, where the use of Si and GaAs technologies is limited.
