Inversely, the absence of a magnetic field means that the atomic lattice is more ordered and results in a temperature decrease.
Imec s breakthrough process selectively replaces silicon fins with indium gallium arsenide (InGs) and indium phospide (InP), accommodating close to eight percent of atomic lattice mismatch.
As for boosting precision relatively modestly by bringing today's atomic lattice clocks into ultraviolet or even X-ray domains, several technical hurdles stand in the way.
The microwave property of M-type doped Ba-ferrites is dependent on their magnetocrystalline anisotropy energy, and that is dependent on the atomic lattice anisotropy of these ferrites.
However, in any atomic lattice, not all the space between the atoms is occupied.
It is thought that the color is created by a twist within the atomic lattice during formation, the result of immense heat and pressure beneath the earth's surface.
