We report the growth of thin films of the ferromagnetic half-Heusler alloy NiMnSb by pulsed-laser deposition on Si (111) and polycrystalline InAs substrates. Highly crystalline films are grown using low substrate temperatures (190-210°C), without any postdeposition annealing. The structural, magnetic, and transport properties of the films are relatively consistent with those of the bulk NiMnSb used as target, which suggests that thin layers of this material grown by laser ablation could be used in multilayer structures as effective spin-polarized conducting layers. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.

S.; Angeli, S.; Kassinos, Stavros C.; Svensson, M. (International Symposium on Turbulence and Shear Flow Phenomena, TSFP10, 2017)The mouth-throat plays a key role in the administration of inhaled medicines. It is an area of intense filtration, where an unacceptably high fraction of the released drug dose is deposited and thus wasted. Due to the ...
