      Electronic Structure and Thermoelectric Properties of Pseudoquaternary Mg2Si1-x-ySnxGey-Based Materials 

      Kutorasinski, K.; Tobola, J.; Kaprzyk, S.; Khan, A. U.; Kyratsi, Theodora (2014)
      A theoretical study is presented on complex pseudoternary Bi-doped Mg2Si1-x-ySnxGey materials, which have recently been revealed to reach high thermoelectric figures of merit (ZT) of ∼1.4. Morphological characterization ...

      Enhancing the nanoscratch resistance of pulsed laser deposited DLC films through molybdenum-doping 

      Constantinou, M.; Pervolaraki, M.; Koutsokeras, L.; Prouskas, C.; Patsalas, P.; Kelires, P.; Giapintzakis, John; Constantinides, G. (2017)
      Pulsed laser deposition was used to grow DLC and molybdenum-doped DLC (DLC:Mo) films, with metal contents up to 3.2 at.%, on silicon substrates. The microstructural details of the films were investigated using X-ray ...

      Picosecond ultrafast pulsed laser deposition of SrTiO3 

      Pervolaraki, M.; Mihailescu, C. N.; Luculescu, C. R.; Ionescu, P.; Dracea, M. D.; Pantelica, D.; Giapintzakis, John (2015)
      SrTiO3 particle-composed films were grown on Si substrates via picosecond ultrafast pulsed laser deposition. We have investigated the effect of laser pulse repetition rate (0.2-8.2 MHz) and fluence (0.079-1.57 J cm-2) on ...

      Solid-state synthesis of Mg 2Si via short-duration ball-milling and low-temperature annealing 

      Ioannou, M.; Chrissafis, K.; Pavlidou, E.; Gascoin, F.; Kyratsi, Theodora (2013)
      In this work, a short duration ball-milling of elemental Mg and Si followed by a thermal treatment is suggested in order to synthesize magnesium silicide via solid-state reaction. The formation of magnesium silicide was ...

      Structural, magnetic, and electrical properties of NiMnSb thin films grown on InSb by pulsed-laser deposition 

      Gardelis, S.; Androulakis, J.; Giapintzakis, John; Monnereau, O.; Buckle, P. D. (2004)
      We report the growth of single-phase, stoichiometric polycrystalline thin films of the half-Heusler ferromagnet NiMnSb, predicted to be half-metallic, on single crystal InSb (100) substrates heated at 200°C by pulsed laser ...
