A simple and feasible method for fabricating high-quality and highly reliable GaN-based metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) devices was developed on the basis of systematic physical and electrical characterizations. Chemical vapor deposition of SiO films directly onto GaN substrates forming Ga-oxide interlayers was used to fabricate SiO/GaO/GaN stacked structures. Although well-behaved hysteresis-free GaN-MOS capacitors with extremely low interface state density below 10cmeV were obtained by post-deposition annealing, Ga diffusion into overlying SiO layers severely degraded the insulating property and dielectric breakdown characteristics of the MOS devices. However, this problem was found to be solved by employing rapid thermal processing, leading to superior performance of the GaN-MOS devices in terms of interface quality, insulating property and gate dielectric reliability.

To evaluate the radiological impact of the atmospheric C discharge from the Tokai nuclear facilities, a 80-year-old Japanese pine tree from Tokai, 1.8 km south-southwest of the Tokai Nuclear Power Plants (Tokai NPP and Tokai-2 NPP) and 1.4 km North-Northwest of the Tokai Reprocessing Plant (Tokai RP), was cored and each annual ring was measured for C. The C specific activities varied from 232.8 Bq kg C to 403.3Bq kg C in the tree rings formed during the periods 1954-2013. The specific activities in 1967-2010 are significantly elevated compared with the ambient background values, clearly indicating C discharges from the nuclear facilities during their normal operation. The excess C activities of 0.5-70.0 Bq kg C in 1970-2011 are positively correlated with the estimated annual C discharges of 0.1-1.2 TBq from Tokai NPP and Tokai-2 NPP with R of 0.66 (n = 38). These activity values of 70.0 Bq kg C were corresponding to an additional annual effective dose of 3.9 uSv via the food ingestion pathway in the study location.

We have fabricated ferrite cantilevers in which their vibrational properties can be controlled by external magnetic fields. Submicron-scale cantilever structures were made from YFeO films by physical etching combined with the use of a focused ion beam milling technique. We found that the cantilevers exhibit two resonance modes which correspond to horizontal and vertical vibrations. Under external magnetic fields, the resonance frequency of the horizontal mode increases, while that of the vertical mode decreases, quantitatively consistent with our numerical simulation for magnetic forces. The changes in resonance frequencies with magnetic fields reach a few percent, showing that an efficient magnetic control of resonance frequencies was achieved.

We review the so-called spin Hall magnetoresistance (SMR) in bilayers of a magnetic insulator and a metal, in which spin currents are generated in the normal metal by the spin Hall effect. The associated angular momentum transfer to the ferromagnetic layer and thereby the electrical resistance is modulated by the angle between the applied current and the magnetization direction. The SMR provides a convenient tool to non-invasively measure the magnetization direction and spin-transfer torque to an insulator. We introduce the minimal theoretical instruments to calculate the SMR, i.e. spin diffusion theory and quantum mechanical boundary conditions. This leads to a small set of parameters that can be fitted to experiments. We discuss the limitations of the theory as well as alternative mechanisms such as the ferromagnetic proximity effect and Rashba spin-orbit torques, and point out new developments.

A percolation model of discharge, which can reproduce stochastic behaviors of initial partial discharge to the growth of a stepped leader, is presented. The model uses macroscopic cells, from which a network of electric circuits is defined, and the spatial and temporal evolutions of the electric field and current in the discharge medium are calculated. For each cell, one of two states, either insulator or conductor, which corresponds to neutral gas or ionized plasmas, respectively, is decided. The decision is made on the basis of probability for each calculation cell at each time step, taking the effects of local electric field and current, which enhance ionization and sustain the discharge channel, respectively, into account. The stochastic behavior of discharge is discussed, in conjunction with the characteristic feature of ionization, that is, the ionization occurs not only ahead of the streamer tip where the electric field is enhanced but randomly in the discharge medium.

We have studied the underlayer thickness and temperature dependencies of the current-induced effective field in CoFeB/MgO heterostructures with Ta-based underlayers. The underlayer thickness at which the effective field saturates is found to be different between the two orthogonal components of the effective field; i.e., the dampinglike term tends to saturate at a smaller underlayer thickness than the fieldlike term. For large underlayer thickness films in which the effective field saturates, we find that the measurement temperature significantly influences the size of the effective field. A striking difference is found in the temperature dependence of the two components: the dampinglike term decreases whereas the fieldlike term increases with increasing temperature. Using a simple spin diffusion-spin transfer model, we find that all of these results can be accounted for provided the real and imaginary parts of an effective spin mixing conductance are negative. These results imply that either spin transport in this system is different from conventional metallic interfaces or effects other than spin diffusion into the magnetic layer need to be taken into account in order to model the system accurately.

Although streamer discharges have long been studied, the mechanism of sudden formation of the complex discharge path has not been fully understood. We show that a simulation based on the percolation model reproduces such development of the streamer. In the model, the discharge medium is divided into cells and is considered to form an electrical circuit network, which is used to calculate the current. In contrast to the characteristic feature of a single electron avalanche is explained by the Townsend theory, when the size of the system becomes greater, random formation of the avalanche in the medium and connection between them determines the propagation of the steamer, which is analyzed using the percolation model. Figure shows the simulated discharge from the initial pre-discharge activity near the electrode to rapid growth of the stepped leader, which causes breakdown.

A platinum (Pt)/yttrium iron garnet (YIG) bilayer system with a well-controlled interface has been developed; spin mixing conductance at the Pt/YIG interface has been studied. A clear interface with good crystal perfection is experimentally demonstrated to be one of the important factors for an ultimate spin mixing conductance. The spin mixing conductance is obtained to be 1.310m at the well-controlled Pt/YIG interface, which is close to a theoretical prediction.
