      Evans, Donald; Holstad, Theodor Secanell; Mosberg, Aleksander Buseth; Småbråten, Didrik Rene; Vullum, Per Erik; Dadlani, Anup; Shapovalov, Konstantin; Yan, Zewu; Bourret, Edith; Gao, David Zhe; Akola, Jaakko; Torgersen, Jan; Van Helvoort, Antonius; Selbach, Sverre Magnus; Meier, Dennis (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Utilizing quantum effects in complex oxides, such as magnetism, multiferroicity and superconductivity, requires atomic-level control of the material’s structure and composition. In contrast, the continuous conductivity ...
    • Electrostatic potential mapping at ferroelectric domain walls by low-temperature photoemission electron microscopy 

      Schaab, Jakob; Shapovalov, Konstantin; Schoenherr, Peggy; Hackl, Johanna; Khan, Muhammad Imtiaz; Hentschel, Mario; Yan, Zewu; Bourret, Edith; Schneider, Claus M.; Nemsak, Slavomír; Stengel, Massimiliano; Cano, Andrés; Meier, Dennis (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Low-temperature X-ray photoemission electron microscopy (X-PEEM) is used to measure the electric potential at domain walls in improper ferroelectric Er0.99Ca0.01MnO3. By combining X-PEEM with scanning probe microscopy and ...
