Domain formation and domain wall motions in ferroelectric BaTiO sub 3 Single Crystals.

  • Merz W.

Using very good BaTiO3 single crystals, we have investigated the arrangements and movements of the domains. Besides the well known 90° walls we have observed 180° walls very clearly. A 180° wall forms the boundary between two domains polarized at 180° to each other (antiparallel). It turns out, that every so called single domain crystal consists of hundreds of small antiparallel domains, Applying and changing an electric field very slowly, we watched the change of the domain pattern and the behavior of the hysteresis loop at the same time (using a d.c. amplifier for the scope). With this method we have obtained a much better understanding of the creation of domain walls and their motion and also of the quite remarkable shape of the hysteresis loop.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
