Understanding and control of diffusion profiles of intrinsic and extrinsic defects in semiconductors is of central importance for developing electronic and optoelectronic devices. Usually, diffusion profiles in all materials are characterized by a depth profile decreasing monotonously from the source of the diffusing species. In some compound semiconductors for certain dopant atoms,...

By elaborate preparation techniques radioactive cadmium and selenium probes are positioned at different sites at surfaces of ferromagnets and in interfaces. Magnetic and quadrupolar hyperfine interactions are measured by angular correlation spectroscopy. At the nickel surface, the measured magnetic fields correlate with the number of neighbouring host atoms. Band structure...

While so far spectroscopic studies of fission isomers concentrated on even-even nuclei, high-resolution spectroscopy of odd-N fission isomers will allow to identify Nilsson orbitals in heavy actinide nuclei. As the first case ever studied for odd-N nuclei, the fission isomer in 237Pu (t1/2 = 110ns/1.1 ?s) was investigated using the 235U(alpha,2n) reaction with a pulsed alpha beam...

The study of the shape coexistence in exotic nuclei provide important benchmarks for modern nuclear theories. Shape-coexisting states in neutron-deficient krypton isotopes have been studied by low-energy multi-step Coulomb excitation of radioactive 74Kr and 76Kr beams at GANIL. Thanks to a large statistic, both transitional and diagonal matrix elements were extracted up to high spins...
