A theoretical investigation of birefringences in cubic and uniaxial magnetic crystals.
In this thesis a consistent multipole theory is used to describe light propagation in nonabsorbing magnetic cubic and uniaxial crystals to the order of electric octopoles and magnetic quadrupoles. The first chapter extends ...
First principles quantum mechanical studies of iridium : a focus on bulk and surface properties.
Recent high-pressure experiments on iridium show a transition to a 14 atomic layer superlattice structure. Since iridium has a high bulk modulus, it is used in many high-pressure applications, for instance as a gasket for ...
