FeSi is a nonmagnetic narrow-gap insulator, exhibiting peculiar charge and spin dynamics beyond a simple band structure picture. Those unusual features have been attracting renewed attention from topological aspects. Although the surface conduction was demonstrated according to size-dependent resistivity in bulk crystals, its topological characteristics and consequent electromagnetic responses remain elusive. Here, we demonstrate an inherent surface ferromagnetic-metal state of FeSi thin films and its strong spin-orbit coupling (SOC) properties through multiple characterizations of two-dimensional conductance, magnetization, and spintronic functionality. Terminated covalent bonding orbitals constitute the polar surface state with momentum-dependent spin textures due to Rashba-type spin splitting, as corroborated by unidirectional magnetoresistance measurements and first-principles calculations. As a consequence of the spin-momentum locking, nonequilibrium spin accumulation causes magnetization switching. These surface properties are closely related to the Zak phase of the bulk band topology. Our findings propose another route to explore noble metal-free materials for SOC-based spin manipulation.


Deep learning approach for an interface structure analysis with a large statistical noise in neutron reflectometry

青木 裕之; Liu, Y.*; 山下 貴志*

Scientific Reports (Internet), 11(1), p.22711_1 - 22711_9, 2021/11

Neutron reflectometry (NR) allows us to probe into the structure of the surfaces and interfaces of various materials such as soft matters and magnetic thin films with a contrast mechanism dependent on isotopic and magnetic states. The neutron beam flux is relatively low compared to that of other sources such as synchrotron radiation; therefore, there has been a strong limitation in the time-resolved measurement and further advanced experiments such as surface imaging. This study aims at the development of a methodology to enable the structural analysis by the NR data with a large statistical error acquired in a short measurement time. The neural network-based method predicts the true NR profile from the data with a 20-fold lower signal compared to that obtained under the conventional measurement condition. This indicates that the acquisition time in the NR measurement can be reduced by more than one order of magnitude. The current method will help achieve remarkable improvement in temporally and spatially resolved NR methods to gain further insight into the surface and interfaces of materials.

Ferromagnetic (FM) interlayer exchange coupling of ion-beam sputtered Fe/Ge multilayers was investigated by off-specular polarized neutron scattering measurements. We observed a monotonously growing correlation of magnetic moments in the out-of-plane direction with decreasing Ge thickness. The results of the Fe/Ge multilayers were used to invoke FM interlayer exchange coupling in a neutron polarizing supermirror in order to extend its bandwidth. Typically, the bandwidth is limited due to a Curie temperature close to room temperature of the thinnest Fe layers with less than 3 nm. We propose a modified layer sequence of the neutron polarizing supermirror, where the minimum Fe thickness was set to 3.5 nm whereas the Ge thickness was reduced. A performance test of the neutron polarizing supermirror showed that the FM interlayer exchange coupling contributed to the presence of the magnetization comparable to the bulk and resulted in a marked extension in the bandwidth.

We investigated the structure of the crystalline adsorption layer of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) in hot water by neutron reflectivity in two cases: when the adsorption layer is exposed on the substrate by leaching the upper bulk layer and when it is deeply embedded between a relatively thick PVA film and substrate. In both cases, the PVA adsorption layer consists of three layers on the Si substrate. The bottom layer, consisting of amorphous chains that are strongly constrained on the substrate, is not swollen even in hot water at 90$$^{circ}$$C. The middle layer, consisting of amorphous chains that are much more mobile compared with those in the bottom layer, has no freedom to assume a crystalline form. Only the molecular chains in the top layer are crystallizable in the adsorption layer, leading to a heterogeneous layered structure in the film thickness direction. This layered structure is attributed to the crystallizable chains of PVA during the formation of the adsorption layer driven by hydrogen bonding. However, the structure and dynamics in the adsorption layer may differ in both cases because the molecular chains in the vicinity of the surface seem to be affected by surface effects even in the adsorption layer.

中性子偏極スーパーミラーは、熱及び冷中性子ビームを偏極するための光学素子であり、実機への応用には高偏極率であるとともに必要な外部磁場を小さく抑えること、即ち偏極スーパーミラーを構成する磁気多層膜が磁気的にソフトであることが重要である。本発表では、J-PARC MLFの共用ビームラインBL17等を用いて得られた偏極スーパーミラーの高偏極率化、及び磁気多層膜の軟磁性化を目指しこれを構成する多層膜特有の磁気特性の解明に関する成果について議論する。

Neutron reflectometry (NR) has been used for the depth structure analysis of materials at the surface and interface with a sub-nanometric resolution. Conventional NR provides averaged information for an area larger than several square centimeters; therefore, it cannot be applied to an interface with an in-plane inhomogeneity. In this study, the NR imaging of the in-plane structure of polymer thin films was achieved. The tomographic reconstruction of the spatially resolved NR profiles obtained by a sheet-shaped neutron beam provided a two-dimensional image of the in-plane interface morphology. The depth distribution of the neutron scattering length density was obtained by analyzing the position-dependent NR profile at a local area less than 0.1 mm$$^{2}$$. The current NR tomography method enables NR measurements for an interface with an inhomogeneous structure. It also provides information on the three-dimensional distribution of the atomic composition near the surface and interfaces for various materials.

We performed H$$_{2}$$O and D$$_{2}$$O double contrast neutron reflectivity measurements on $$sim$$25-nm-thick Nafion thin films on hydrophilic and hydrophobic carbon in water and 80% relative humidity vapor to investigate the depth profile of the water and Nafion distribution. We found a dense Nafion layer at the air or water interface regardless of the carbon hydrophilicity. On the other hand, a water-rich Nafion dense layer was observed at the carbon interface only for hydrophilic carbon. The double contrast measurements provided quantitative information about the depth profile but simultaneously indicated that the sum of the volume occupancies of water and Nafion in the film was less than unity. We assessed the problem based on two possibilities: voids in the film or "residual water", which cannot be exchanged or is difficult to exchange with water outside.

A large background scattering originating from the sample matrix is a major obstacle for fine-structure analysis of a nanometric layer buried in a bulk material. As polarization analysis can decrease undesired scattering in a neutron reflectivity (NR) profile, we performed NR experiments with polarization analysis on a polypropylene (PP)/perhydropolysilazane-derived SiO$$_{2}$$ (PDS)/Si substrate sample, having a deep-buried layer of SiO$$_{2}$$ to elucidate the fine structure of the nano-PDS layer. This method offers unique possibilities for increasing the amplitude of the Kiessig fringes in the higher scattering vector (Qz) region of the NR profiles in the sample by decreasing the undesired background scattering. Fitting and Fourier transform analysis results of the NR data indicated that the synthesized PDS layer remained between the PP plate and Si substrate with a thickness of approximately 109 ${AA}$;. Furthermore, the scattering length density of the PDS layer, obtained from the background subtracted data appeared to be more accurate than that obtained from the raw data. Although the density of the PDS layer was lower than that of natural SiO$$_{2}$$, the PDS thin layer had adequate mechanical strength to maintain a uniform PDS layer in the depth-direction under the deep-buried condition.

重水素を含んだfcc Niを、3.36GPaで1073Kから300Kへ冷却した際の、構造中の重水素(D)の席占有率を中性子その場観察により調べた。多くの重水素はfccの金属格子の八面体サイトを占め、またわずかながら四面体サイトへの占有も見られた。八面体サイトの占有率は、1073Kから300Kへの冷却で0.4から0.85へ増大した。一方、四面体サイトの占有率は約0.02のままであった。この温度に依存しない四面体サイトの占有率は普通でなく、その理由はよくわからない。水素による膨張の体積と水素組成の直線関係から、重水素の侵入による体積膨張は、2.09(13) ${AA $^{3}$/D}$原子と求められた。この値は、過去NiやNi$$_{0.8}$$ Fe$$_{0.2}$$合金で報告されている2.14-2.2 ${AA $^{3}$/D}$原子とよく一致している。

The interfacial structure of a hexamethylenetetramine-cured phenolic resin on a silica surface was investigated by the complementary use of X-ray and neutron reflectivity (XRR and NR, respectively). The contrast-variation technique was applied using D$$_{2}$$O for the NR analysis in which the coherent neutron scattering length density (SLD) largely changed owing to the D$$_{2}$$O absorption of the dry phenolic resin and the hydrogen-to-deuterium exchange of phenolic hydroxyl groups. The XRR profile indicated no clear interfacial structure in terms of the mass density, whereas the NR profile indicated the presence of an interfacial nanolayer on the native silica surface according to the SLD. The thickness of the interfacial layer was 1-2 nm, which was independent of the thickness of the bulk resin layer. The formation of the interfacial layer on the silica surface could be caused by preferential adsorption of the novolac resin on the silica surface via strong hydrogen bonding between phenolic units in the novolac resin and silica surface comprising silanol and silyl ether groups resulting in interfacial cross-link inhomogeneity of the phenolic resin on the silica surface in the thickness direction. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of an experimental elucidation of the buried interfacial structure between the phenolic resins on the silica surface at a nanometer level.

We investigated in detail the structures in the poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) adsorption layers on a Si substrate, which remained on the substrate after immersing the relatively thick 30 - 50 nm films in hot water, by neutron reflectometry under humid conditions. For the PVA with a degree of saponification exceeding 98 mol %, the adsorption layer exhibits a three-layered structure in the thickness direction. The bottom layer is considered to be the so-called inner adsorption layer that is not fully swollen with water vapor. This may be because the polymer chains in the inner adsorption layer are strongly constrained onto the substrate, which inhibits water vapor penetration. The polymer chains in this layer have many contact points to the substrate via the hydrogen bonding between the hydroxyl groups in the polymer chain and the silanol groups on the surface of the Si substrate and consequently exhibit extremely slow dynamics. Therefore, it is inferred that the bottom layer is fully amorphous. Furthermore, we consider the middle layer to be somewhat amorphous because parts of the molecular chains are pinned below the interface between the middle and bottom layers. The molecular chains in the top layer become more mobile and ordered, owing to the large distance from the strongly constrained bottom layer; therefore, they exhibit a much lower degree of swelling compared to the middle amorphous layer. Meanwhile, for the PVA with a much lower degree of saponification, the adsorption layer structure consists of the two-layers. The bottom layer forms the inner adsorption layer that moderately swells with water vapor because the polymer chains have few contact points to the substrate. The molecular chains in the middle layer, therefore, are somewhat crystallizable because of this weak constraint.

We investigated the swelling behaviors of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) films deposited on Si wafers with water vapor, which is a good solvent for PVA for elucidating structural and dynamical heterogeneities in the film thickness direction. Using deuterated water vapor, structural and dynamical differences in the thickness direction can be detected easily as different degrees of swelling in the thickness direction by neutron reflectivity. Consequently, the PVA film with a degree of saponification exceeding 98 mol % exhibits a three-layered structure in the thickness direction. It is considered that an adsorption layer consisting of molecular chains that are strongly adsorbed onto the solid substrate is formed at the interface with the substrate, which is not swollen with water vapor compared with the bulk-like layer above it. The adsorption layer is considered to exhibit significantly slower dynamics than the bulk. Furthermore, a surface layer that swells excessively compared with the underneath bulk-like layer is found. This excess swelling of the surface layer may be related to a higher mobility of the molecular chains or lower crystallinity at the surface region compared to the underneath bulk-like layer. Meanwhile, for the PVA film with a much lower degree of saponification, a thin layer with a slightly lower degree of swelling than the bulk-like layer above it can be detected at the interface between the film and substrate only under a high humidity condition. This layer is considered to be the adsorption layer composed of molecular chains loosely adsorbed onto the Si substrate.
