Grundlagen der Gerinnungsaktivierung an Fremdmaterialien
Maitz, M. F.;
Die Blutgerinnung ist ein komplex regulierter Vorgang. Es gibt eine Reihe von Faktoren, die die Gerinnung initiieren können. Beteiligt sind die Proteasen der Gerinnungskaskade, Blutplättchen, die Endothelzellen der Gefäßwand und verschiedene Proteine, die an Oberflächen adsorbiert sind. Die Ursachen der Blutgerinnung liegen allgemein an geänderten Strömungsverhältnissen, erhöhter Gerinnungsfähigkeit des Blutes und an den Oberflächen.
Die Aktivierung der Blutgerinnung ist meist bei Implantaten im Blutstrom nicht gewünscht. Der Schwerpunkt dieser Übersicht liegt darauf, wie durch veränderte Oberflächeneigenschaften die direkte Aktivierung der plasmatischen Blutgerinnung, Aktivierung von Blutplättchen und der Endothelzellen unterdrückt werden können. Dabei werden physikalische Eigenschaften wie die Oberflächenrauhigkeit und Oberflächenenergie optimiert, biochemisch funktionelle Gruppen auf der Oberfläche aufgebracht, als lokale Pharmaka werden Heparin und Hirudin als gerinnungshemmende Substanzen angewandt, Thrombozyten-Rezeptorblocker und antiproliferative Medikamente sind in vorklinischen oder klinischen Studien. Weiter wird darauf gesetzt, eine intakte Endothelschicht zu erreichen, indem das Endothelwachstum auf der Oberfläche gefördert wird oder Endothelzellen auf den Implantatoberflächen in vitro im Sinn von Tissue Engineering zu züchten.

Ta implantation and deposition for increased X-Ray visibility and hemocompatibility of vascular stents
Maitz, M. F.; Günzel, R.; Pham, M. T.; Langping, W.; Chu, P.; Richter, E.;
Objectives: Coronary stents are seen as the most important step in cardiology of the decade, as they reduce the risk of restenosis after angioplasty and the risk of a second invasive procedure. But still problems concerning occlusion by restenosis or thrombosis have to be overcome, and x-ray contrast of the thin wires has to be improved. The suggested way is coating of the stents with tantalum which is known for its good biocompatibility and hemocompatibility, and its high x-ray absorption.
Deposition of tantalum on stainless steel, the basis of the stent material, is not trivial with common techniques, because of poor adhesion of tantalum. Plasma immersion ion implantation and plasma ion deposition of tantalum are promising ways to create an adherent tantalum layer.
Methods: Tantalum was deposited on flat samples of stainless steel in an argon plasma, 1A Magnetron currency, WHF = 1000 W and 5µs pulse time. Various voltages, bias voltages, pulse counts and temperatures were used.
The adhesion of the tantalum layer was measured in a scratch test. Potentiodynamic corrosion measurement was performed with 0.05M H2SO4 as an electrolyte.
For blood compatibility the activation of freshly prepared blood platelets on the surface was investigated and the clotting time with standard plasma was measured.
Results: For thin coatings (< 1µm) the result of the scratch test was 250mN as a promising result. The coating showed very high corrosion resistance with a corrosion potential between 225 mV and 355 mV and corrosion current densities between 20 nA and 40 nA cm-2.
Results of thrombocyte adhesion, thrombocyte activation and blood clotting time will be presented.
Production of thicker coatings caused problems because of internal stress in the coating.
Conclusion: Coating of stainless steel with tantalum by plasma ion deposition is a good means to increase corrosion resistance and blood compatibility. The production of a thick layer with increased X-ray contrast needs further work.

Hydroxyapatite precipitation on Na implanted titanium
Maitz, M. F.; Pham, M. T.; Matz, W.; Reuther, H.; Steiner, G.; Richter, E.;
Objectives: Titanium is known for its good biocompatibility as an implant material. But a structural integration of a foreign material into the body is known only for hydroxyapatite because of its osteoconductive properties. Surface coating of titanium with hydroxyapatite by means of plasma spraying is the current technique to improve the osteointegration of implants. Problems with this method are the high thickness and limited adhesion of the apatite coating on titanium. Further there are changes in crystallinity of the apatite due to the heating process. A surface preparation that spontaneously induces hydroxyapatite nucleation on its surface is desired.
Methods: By ion beam implantation of Na (3 x 1017 ions cm-1, 50 keV) in titanium a sodium titanate surface was created. Hydrolysis of this layer in deionidised water resulted in formation of TiOH. By incubation in simulated body fluid a hydroxyapatite layer was precipitated on the surface. The human osteosarcoma cell line was seeded out on samples after hydrolysis and after hydroxyapatite precipitation. Reference samples were untreated or activated by soaking in hot NaOH. After 3, 14, and 28 days samples ware investigated for cell growth, alkaline phosphatase activity and calcification.
Results: Cell growth on Na implanted hydrolysed samples was decreased compared with pure titanium at any time. After hydroxyapatite precipitation cell growth after two weeks and four weeks was significantly higher on Na implanted samples than on untreated or NaOH treated samples. Without previous hydroxyapatite deposition only on NaOH treated samples a production of hydroxyapatite could be detected, after hydroxyapatite precipitation there was also better calcification by the cells. Alkaline phosphatase did not differ significantly in the cells on the different substrates.
Conclusion: Na ion implantation in titanium can activate the surface for hydroxyapatite nucleation out of aqueous solutions. The surface without further treatment is too reactive for direct cell contact. After a calciumphosphate deposition on the surface the growth of bone forming cells is enhanced.

The spectral intensity of the radiation emitted by a planar channeled
electron in a single crystal excited by a longitudinal hypersonic
wave propagating along the channeling direction has been calculated
for the energy range 10 MeV£E£100 MeV.
It has bben found that the hypersound can excite inverse transitions
through which the transversal energy of the channeled electron is increased.
These transitions have a resonant nature and can lead to a considerable
intensification of the electron channeling radiation.

Resonant Influence of a Longitudinal Hypersonic Field on the Radiation from Channeled Electrons
Grigoryan, L. S.; Mkrtchyan, A. R.; Mkrtchyan, A. H.; Khachatryan, H. F.; Prade, H.; Wagner, W.; Piestrup, M. A.;
The wave function of a planar/axially channeled electron with energy 10 MeV≤E≤1 GeV under the influence of a longitudinal hypersonic wave excited in a single crystal is calculated. Conditions for the resonant influence of the hypersonic wave on the quantum state of the channeled electron are deduced. Expressions for the wave function that are applicable in the case of resonance are obtained.
Angular and spectral distributions of the radiation intensity from the planar/axially channeled electron are also calculated. The possibility of significant amplification of channeling radiation by a hypersonic wave is substantiated. It is found that the hypersound can excite inverse radiative transitions through which the transversal energy of the channeled electron is increased. These transitions have a resonant nature and can lead to a considerable intensification of the electron channeling radiation. In the case of axial channeling, the resonance radiation is sustained also by direct radiative transitions of the electron.

Ion acoustic imaging of microstructures using a focused ion beam system
Akhmadaliev, C.; Bischoff, L.; Teichert, J.; Kazbekov, K.;
: An intensity modulated focused ion beam (FIB) which is hitting the surface of a solid, leads to a small temperature variation in the near subsurface region which is sufficient for thermal elastic wave generation. The measurement of these waves can be used for analysis and imaging of surface as well as near subsurface structures in the material. The modified FIB equipment IMSA-100 working with 35 keV Ga+ and Au+ ions and a current of about 3 nA was employed to obtain acoustic images from structures on silicon, aluminum and glass targets. The acoustic signals were detected using a PZT transducer delivering an output voltage of 50 - 100 nV. The modulation frequency was varied in the range of 60kHz - 1MHz. The obtained lateral resolution of the ion acoustic images at 80kHz was about 16 µm on silicon and about 7µm on glass and at 632 kHz it decreases to 7 µm and 3 µm respectively.

Quantum-Mechanical Approach to Planar Positron Channeling in a Longitudinal Hypersonic Field
Grigoryan, L. S.; Mkrtchyan, A. R.; Mkrtchyan, A. H.; Khachatryan, H. F.; Prade, H.; Wagner, W.; Piestrup, M. A.;
The wave function of a planar-channeled positron with energy
10 MeV£E£100 MeV
under the resonant influence of hypersound is calculated.
It is found that the longitudinal hypersound changes the spectral
distribution of the channeling radiation significantly.
With decreasing wavelength ls of the hypersound,
starting from ls=lE,
where lE is the characteristic
length related to one transverse oscillation of the channeled positron,
a new type of radiative transition occurs.
It is characterized by the stimulated enhancement of transverse
energy of the positron at channeling (inverse radiative transition).
When ls approaches lE/2 the inverse
transitions show a resonant behaviour.

Direct fabrication of Ordered Polymer nanocavity Arrays from Surface-Modified ion- nanostructured silicon Templates
Azzaroni, O.; Schilardi, P. L.; Gago, R.; Vázquez, L.; Salvarezza, R. C.;
Ion-beam nanopatterned silicon has been used as template for the direct molding of polymeric materials. The silicon surface was chemically modified by octadecyltrichlorosilane before molding in order to allows easy polymer release. This fabrication process allows us to produce a nanocavity polymer array from a nanodot structured silicon template with a lateral and vertical resolutions of 50 nm and 5 nm, respectively. Both, the use of the nanopatterned silicon template and tapping mode atomic force microscopy at low tip-sample interaction forces allow us to determine not only the lateral and vertical resolution of this new method but also the error involved in the transfer process, which results to be of 1nm. Thus. the new method fulfils the requirements of serial nanofabrication trends that requires sub-100 nm lateral resolution and sub-10nm vertical resolution involving only a few and very simple steps during the whole nanofabrication process. Besides, the method displays a proved high fidelity in the molding process showing its potential applications as a direct nanofabrication route for future information storage technologies.

X-ray absorption studies of the bonding structure of B-C-N compounds
Jiménez, I.; Gago, R.; Caretti, I.; Albella, J. M.;
Although cubic BCN compounds are desired for their attractive mechanical properties, the synthesis in thin film form of these compounds normally yields amorphous material containing different local structures like trigonal bonding (hexagonal structure), tegragonal bonding (cubic structure) and formation of B12 icosahedra. X-ray absorption (XANES) spectroscopy is a well suited technique to analyse the local structure of these amorphous coatings and discern between formation of single phase or multiple phase and ternary compounds or mixtures of binary grains. We have synthesized a variety of ternary BCN compounds by using Ion Beam Assisted Deposition (IBAD) techniques using B4C, B and C solid evaporation sources with concurrent ion bombardment from mixtures of N2, Ar and CH4 gases. In this way, hydrogenated and hydrogen-free BCN compounds with various compositions are obtained. The bonding structure of the different compounds is discussed in connection with the sample preparation method.

Evaluation of the Two-Photon Self-Energy Correction for Hydrogenlike Ions
Goidenko, I. A.; Labzowski, L. N.; Nefiodov, A. V.; Plunien, G.; Soff, G.; Zschocke, S.;
We report on the recent evaluation of the two-photon electron self energy to all orders in the
interaction with the Coulomb field of the nucleus. With the present results at hand the major theoretical
uncertainty is diminished, which provides predictions of the ground-state energy with a relative
accuracy of about 10(-6) for the hydrogenlike uranium and lead systems. This allows for
high-precision tests of quantum electrodynamics (QED) in strong fields that are expected to be
experimentally available in the near future.

Radiative Corrections in Highly Charged Ions and Tests of QED in Strong Electric and Magnetic Fields
Goidenko, I. A.; Labzowski, L. N.; Nefiodov, A. V.; Jentschura, U. D.; Plunien, G.; Zschocke, S.; Soff, G.;
To provide predictions of the Lamb shift of highly charged ions on the level of accuracy of about
10(-6) has been achieved after exact results for the contributions of all two-photon self-energy
diagrams have been performed. We report on the present status of our Lamb-shift calculations
including all QED-corrections of first- and second-order in the finestructure constant a and all
relevant nuclear effects. An excellent agreement between the most recent experimental data for Lamb
shift of the ls-ground state in hydrogenlike uranium can be stated. This can serve as a sensitive test
of QED in the strongest electric fields accessible in nature. In a second part of this article we report
about an all-order numerical evaluation of the one-photon selfenergy at low nuclear charge (Z =
1,...,5). A sensitive comparison of our numerical approach with analytical approach to the one-photon
selfenergy confirms the consistency of these two different approaches (numerical and analytic) to very
high precision.

Spectroscopy in the Z=49 108,110In isotopes: Lifetime measurements inshears bands
Chiara, C. J.; Fossan, D. B.; Janzen, V. P.; Koike, T.; Lafosse, D. R.; Lane, G. J.; Mullins, S. M.; Paul, E. S.; Radford, D. C.; Schnare, H.; Sears, J. M.; Smith, J. F.; Starosta, K.; Vaska, P.; Wadsworth, R.; Ward, D.; Frauendorf, S.;
Excited states have been populated in In-108 and In-110 in complementary
backed- and thin-target experiments, using the Stony Brook and the 8
pi Ge-detector arrays. The level schemes for both isotopes have been
extended and modified, including the first observation of DeltaI = 2
bands in In-110. Lifetimes of states in four DeltaI = 1 bands and one DeltaI = 2
band have been measured using the Doppler-shift attenuation method.
Experimental total angular momenta and reduced transition strengths for
the DeltaI = 1 bands have been compared with tilted axis cranking
predictions for shears bands with configurations involving one proton
g(9/2) hole and one or three valence quasineutrons from the h(11/2) and
g(7/2)/d(5/2) orbitals. The DeltaI = 2 bands have been compared with
principal axis cranking predictions for configurations with two g(9/2)
proton holes and a g(7/2) or d(5/2) proton and one- or three-quasineutron
configurations involving the h(11/2) and g(7/2)/d(5/2) orbitals. In
general, there is good overall agreement for both the angular momenta and reduced
transition strengths. The DeltaI = 1 and DeltaI = 2 bands have large
J((2))/B (E2) ratios as expected for the shears mechanism. The B (M1) strengths
deduced for the DeltaI = 1 bands show a decreasing trend as a function
of spin, which is also a feature of the shears mechanism. Configuration
assignments have been made for most observed bands based on comparisons
with theory and systematics of neighboring nuclei.

Emission of Unstable Clusters from Hot Yb Compound Nuclei
Charity, R. J.; Sobotka, L. G.; Cibor, J.; Hagel, K.; Murray, M.; Natowitz, J. B.; Wada, R.; El Masri, Y.; Fabris, D.; Nebbia, G.; Viesta, G.; Cinausero, M.; Fioretto, E.; Prete, G.; Wagner, A.; Xu, H.;
Neutrons and isotopically resolved light charged particles have been detected in coincidence with evaporation residues produced in the reaction E/A = 11 MeV 60Ni+100Mo. Multiplicities of evaporated particle-unstable clusters have been determined from correlations in the emission of these light particles. The decay of the short-lived 5He and 8Be (E* = 3.04 MeV) states was found to be affected by the Coulomb field of the compound nucleus in accordance with theoretical estimates. The contributions to the measured kinetic-energy distributions of stable fragments from the sequential decay of the unstable clusters was examined. Overall, the contributions from secondary fragments do not greatly influence the spectral shapes and specifically the location of the spectral peaks are not significantly shifted down in energy due to the presence of these secondary fragments. Therefore contrary to the suggestion of Charity et al.
[Phys. Rev. C 56, 873 (1997)], the lower peak energy of the experimental α-particle spectrum as compared to standard statistical-model calculations cannot be attributed to sequential α-particles from 5He and other clusters. Only for the extreme "subbarrier" regions of the α-particle, deuteron, 6,7Li, and 8Be spectra was the sequential contribution found to be dominant. Statistical-model calculations incorporating large initial deformations are shown to provide enhancements in the yield of low-energy fragments which are roughly appropriate for all the detected isotopes. This suggests that the origin of the sub-barrier enhancements may be a result of evaporation from highly deformed systems which are either produced dynamically during the fusion process or by thermal shape fluctuations.

Klonogenes Zellüberleben von Keratinozyten und Fibroblasten nach Bestrahlung mit weichen Röntgenstrahlen.
Brankovic, K.; Slonina, D.; Panteleeva, A.; Pawelke, J.; Dörr, W.;
Weiche Röntgenstrahlung wird in der diagnostischen Radiologie, aber auch in der Strahlentherapie angewandt. In der vorliegenden Untersuchung wurde die Wirkung weicher Röntgenstrahlen (25 kV) bzw. Referenzröntgenstrahlung (200 kV) für verschiedene Zelllinien (3T3/NIH Mausfibroblasten, V-79 Hamsterfibroblasten, primäre neonatale Haut-Keratinozyten des Menschen) verglichen. Zusammenfassend zeigen Fibroblasten ein vemindertes klonogenes Zellüberleben nach Bestrahlung mit weichen Röntgenstrahlen im Vergleich zu 200 kV Röntgenstrahlen. Dieser Unterschied geht einher mit einer Abnahme des alpha-Wertes und einer Zunahme von beta. Demgegenüber zeigen Keratinozyten keine deutliche Veränderung des
Zellüberlebens. Hier findet sich jedoch eine Zunahme von alpha.

Three-dimensional linear stability analysis of lid-driven MHD cavity flow
Shatrov, V.; Mutschke, G.; Gerbeth, G.;
We present numerical results of a linear 3-D stability analysis of a square lid-driven cavity flow under the influence of an external magnetic field which is directed parallel to the lid. For Reynolds numbers up to Re * 7800 the 2-D hydrodynamic flow is steady. The Lorentz force has a strong influence on the 2-D flow structure, thereby changing number, shape and strength of the eddies inside. The resulting 3-D stability behaviour is rather complex since it depends on the 2-D flow structure. Although increasing magnetic fields are able to damp 3-D instability, in a parameter region around Re = 3100, several branches of the neutral stability curve do exist. This leads to a non-monotonic behaviour of receptivity to 3-D disturbances as the strength of the magnetic field is increased.

Thin Films of Molecular Metals: TTF-TCNQ
Fraxedas, J.; Molas, S.; Figueras, A.; Jiménez, I.; Gago, R.; Auban-Senzier, P.; Goffman, M.;
We present recent results on the characterization of highly-ordered polycrystalline thin films of the charge transfer salt TTF-TCNQ (TTF = tetrathiafulvalene, TCNQ = tetracyanoquinodimethane) prepared by thermal sublimation in high vacuum under different conditions. The increase in orientation and microcrystal size as a function of substrate and annealing temperatures is addressed. A consequence of such an increase is the reduction of the conductivity activation energy, which eventually leads to the observation of the Peierls transition by resistivity measurements. X-ray Absorption Near Edge Spectroscopy (XANES) studies performed with synchrotron radiation reveal directly the influence of charge transfer on unoccupied states near the Fermi level.

Bloch oscillations and their coupling to optical phonons
Dekorsy, T.;
Bloch oscillations in semiconductor superlattices are an intriguing subject of electronic coherence in low dimensional semiconductor structures. The electronic coherence is destroyed by several scattering mechanisms, most important carrier-carrier scattering and carrier-phonon scattering. Especially in wide miniband superlattices with miniband widths larger than the LO phonon energy LO phonon emission is responsible for subpicosecond dephasing times. We investigate the dynamics of Bloch oscillations in GaAs/AlxGa1-xAs superlattices with large minibands tuned into resonance with LO phonons. The coherent excitation of coherent LO phonons via Bloch oscillations is observed at very low carrier densities. The peculiarities of the resonant excitation process are in agreement with theoretical considerations.

The A(e,e,K+YX reaction on H, D, 3He, and 4He was investigated in Hall C at CEBAF. Data were obtained for Q2≈0.35 and 0.5 GeV2 at 3.245 GeV. The missing mass spectra for both H and D are fitted with Monte-Carlo simulations incorporating peaks corresponding to Λ production on the proton and Σ production on both the proton and neutron. For D, the cross section ratio Σ0-≈2, and excess yield close to the thresholds for Λ and Σ production can be attributed to final-state interactions; models are compared to the data. The analysis of the data for the He targets is in a more preliminary state with broader quasi-free peaks resulting from the higher Fermi momenta. Evidence for bound Λ-hypernuclear states is seen and other structure may be present.

Characteristic Features of the Pseudogap and Superconducting States of YBa2Cu3O7 – x
Misochko, O. V.; Georgiev, N.; Dekorsy, T.; Helm, M.;
The relaxation dynamics of the lattice and low-energy quasiparticles in a YBa2Cu3O7 – x superconductor are studied by the light reflection technique with femtosecond temporal resolution in a wide temperature range. It is shown that, for T > Tc, there exist two temperature regions with qualitatively and quantitatively different excitation dynamics, and the transition between these regions is of a hysteretic nature. It is also found that the character of changes observed in the charge carrier relaxation dynamics in the superconducting state testifies to the presence of an anisotropic gap with nodes at the Fermi surface.

Observation of a hysteretic pseudogap behavior via coherent phonons in high temperature superconductors
Dekorsy, T.; Georgiev, N.; Helm, M.; Misochko, O. V.;
We investigate ultrafast reflectivity changes of a near-optimally doped YBa2Cu3O7-x (123) superconductor. The amplitude of coherently excited phonons show strong changes as a function of temperature above the superconducting transition temperature. These changes give evidence for two crossover temperatures within the pseudogap regime. In addition, these crossover temperatures exhibit a clear hysteretic behavior as a function of temperature.

IR spectroscopic possibilities with the Rossendorf free-electron laser
Dekorsy, T.;
The free-electron laser (FEL) facility at the Research Center Rossendorf will span the wavelength range from 5 µm to 150 µm. Driven by the superconducting linear accelerator ELBE (up to 40 MeV electron energies, bunch charge of 77 pC) the FEL will provide a continuous pulse train at 13 MHz with pulsewidths of 0.5 ps to 10 ps and pulse energies in the µJ range. These pulses will be used for time-resolved spectroscopy, nonlinear optics and optical near-field spectroscopy by three in-house groups working on semiconductors, bio-molecules and cells. We will describe the status of the FEL and of the experimental facilities. The combination of the FEL with high magnetic fields will represent unique experimental possibilities. These will be discussed with emphasis on semiconductor physics.

Von der Femtosekunden Spektroskopie zur -Technologie
Dekorsy, T.;
Die Entwicklung von Femtosekunden-Lasersystemen hat in den letzten Jahren einen rasanten Fortschritt gemacht. Vom Fernen Infrarot bis zur Röntgenstrahlung lassen sich auf einem optischen Tisch über nichtlineare optische Prozesse ultrakurze Pulse hoher Intensität erzeugen. Diese Laser erlauben die zeitliche Auflösung der wichtigsten Prozesse in Halbleitern, an Oberflächen, bei chemischen Reaktionen und in biologischen Systemen und sind damit zu einem wertvollen wissenschaftlichen Instrument geworden. Ihre Verknüpfung mit dem Freie-Elektronen Laser an ELBE ermöglicht weitere einzigartige spektroskopische Möglichkeiten.

The isoscalar-isovector (r-w) interferences in the exclusive reactions
near the w threshold leads to a distinct difference of the dielectron invariant
mass distributions depending on beam energy.
The strength of this effect is determined by the coupling of resonances to the nucleon
vector-meson channels and other resonance properties. Therefore, a combined analysis of the

Visualization of vacancy type defects in the RP/2 region of ion implanted and annealed silicon
Peeva, A.; Koegler, R.; Skorupa, W.;
Recently, a strong metal gettering in Si after ion implantation and annealing has been detected at depths between the surface and the projected ion range RP, indicating the presence of residual defects therein. The theoretical ballistic calculations ascribed the RP/2 effect to the excess vacancies resulting from the forward momentum transfer of the implanted ions into the silicon matrix. So far, the gettering centers for metals at RP/2 have been considered to be too small to be visible by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). We show that the crucial point for visualization of the vacancy type defects at RP/2 by TEM is the specimen preparation technique. The very widely used conventional ion milling technique for TEM specimen preparation introduces damage on the surface of the XTEM specimen, which blurs the original defect structure at RP/2 and obscure it of being visualized. Only the TEM specimens prepared by cleaving reveals cavities at RP/2. Minimum damage production caused during the preparation of the TEM specimen using cleaving allows the imaging of the cavities at RP/2.

Template-Directed Ion Beam Synthesis of Ge Nanowires Using V-Grooves
Müller, T.; Heinig, K.-H.; Schmidt, B.;
Guided self-organization of Ge nanowires in templates has been studied experimentally and theoretically. V-grooves formed in (001)Si by anisotropic etching with 30% KOH at 80°C. About 200 nm were grown on the (001)Si wafer surface and on the (111)Si V-groove sidewalls by oxidation at 1000°C in dry O2. The resulting SiO2-V-grooves were used as templates for the Ge nanowire fabrication. Ge+ ions have been implanted into the SiO2 at 70 keV with a fluence of 1017 cm-2. The theoretically predicted enrichment of Ge in the V-groove bottom during homogeneous ion implantation has been proven by analytic TEM (EDX). Annealing of Ge+ implanted samples in N2 leads to phase separation of Ge from the SiO2 matrix. Cross sectional TEM studies have confirmed the self-organization of a Ge nanowire in the SiO2 at the V-groove bottom, whereas only a thin layer of isolated Ge nanoclusters has been found in the V-groove side-walls. The kinetics of the wire formation during annealing was studied 3D Kinetic Lattice Monte-Carlo simulations. The comparison to experimental results reveals self-organization phenomena during phase separation, caused by nucleation, Ostwald ripening and coalescence. Moreover, the simulations were used to study the stability of very thin Ge nanowires against thermal fluctuations.

between the electroproduced hyperon and the spectator nucleon. The effects

Deposition of thick cubic boron nitride thin films by dual ion beam deposition
Gago, R.; Kolitsch, A.; Möller, W.;
In this work we report on the production of cubic boron nitride (c-BN) thin films by Dual Ion Beam Deposition (DIBD). The interest of this work is to search for an ion-beam-assisted deposition (IBAD) method able to produce thick (> 1 um) low-stress c-BN thin films and, hence, with potential industrial application. This is not applicable in the case of IBAD using electron beam evaporation, since the material contained in the liner limits the maximum process time and, in addition, the fact that boron sublimes, makes difficult a fine control over the evaporation rate. Our DIBD system is equipped with two commercial Kauffman-type ion guns. Boron atoms were sputtered by direct Ar+ bombardment of a 3” boron target. The ions impinge under an angle of 45° and are produced with a 3 cm beam-diameter ion gun. The growth process was assisted by concurrent bombardment from a mixture of argon and nitrogen ions extracted from a 5 cm beam-diameter ion gun. For the cubic phase growth, the substrate temperature and ion assisting parameters were chosen in order to reach the required momentum transfer per incoming atom [1]. The stress release was achieved by additional ion bombardment with medium-energy N2+ ions (35 keV) during the growth process [2].

Hydrogen incorporation on CNx films deposited by ECR Chemical Vapor Deposition
Camero, M.; Gago, R.; Gómez-Aleixandre, C.; Albella, J. M.;
Amorphous CNxHy films have been deposited by ECR-CVD from argon, nitrogen and methane gas mixtures. The composition and bonding environment of the films, consisting in one-dimensional polymeric chains with amine groups, have been studied by ERDA and IRS. By proper selection of the gas mixture composition, hydrogen incorporation in the films can be controlled. For low methane concentrations (CH4/(N2+CH4)<0.5) hydrogen atoms are predominantly joined as NHx radicals whereas for higher methane concentrations the CHx percentage in the films strongly increases. Furthermore, as the methane concentration increases, the substitution of NHx by larger size CHx radicals accounts for the decrease in the H content of the films, as detected by ERDA (Elastic Recoil Detection Analysis). The influence on the hydrogen incorporation of the argon content in the gas mixture has also been evaluated.

Fine structure at the x-ray absorption pi* and sigma* bands of amorphous carbon: distorted trigonal and tetragonal bonding?
Jiménez, I.; Gago, R.; Albella, J. M.;
X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy (XANES) of amorphous carbon films shows a fine structure at the pi* and sigma* bands that is not present in the reference crystalline graphite and diamond materials. Thermal treatments of the amorphous carbon films in a vacuum induce clear changes in the fine structure, hence indicating that it is due to the presence of multiple bonding states. The intensity and energy position of the multiple pi* and sigma* states is directly correlated, confirming its origin as different bonding states of sp2 hybridized carbon atoms. The presence of the fine structure in amorphous carbon is interpreted as due to the presence of distorted trigonal and tetragonal bonding structures, in addition to the ideal hexagonal and cubic structures.

Direct molding of nanopatterned polymeric films: Resolution and errors
Azzarozi, O.; Schilardi, P. L.; Salvarezza, R. C.; Gago, R.; Vázquez, L.;
The capability of the direct polymer molding method to transfer ordered nanopatterns from a surface-modified silicon template to polymeric materials, such as polystyrene (PS) and high-impact polystyrene (HIPS) is investigated by tapping mode atomic force microscopy (AFM). The lateral resolution of the method for both materials is 54 ± 1 nm while the vertical resolution is 56 ± 1 nm and 3 ± 1 nm, for PS and HIPS, respectively. This difference is explained by considering the different nanomechanical properties of the polymers. In contrast, HIPS surfaces are more resistant to the wear induced by the repetitive ‘‘reading’’ of the surface structure with the AFM tip.

Deposition of TiN/AlN bilayers on a rotating substrate by reactive sputtering
Auger, M. A.; Gago, R.; Fernández, M.; Sánchez, O.; Albella, J. M.;
A balanced dual-cathode reactive magnetron sputtering system has been developed, which allows the growth of TiN/AlN bilayers from pure titanium and aluminium targets in a mixture of argon and nitrogen gases. One important property of the TiN/AlN coatings is that they combine two important requirements for protective coatings: good adhesion properties of the TiN films and the chemical stability of the AlN films. The chemical composition of the grown layers has been studied by Auger electron spectroscopy (AES), elastic recoil detection analysis (ERDA) and Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy (RBS) techniques, and nitrogen incorporation in the nitrides has been correlated to the argonynitrogen ratio in the sputtering gas. Structural properties have been studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD), and the results showed the presence of cubic TiN and hexagonal AlN phases in the grown bilayer. Mechanical properties have been extracted from nano-indentation measurements, giving hardness values for TiN/AlN bilayer in the range of the reported values for TiN coatings.

X-Ray absorption study of the bonding structure of BCN compounds enriched in carbon by CH4 ion assistance
Gago, R.; Jimenez, I.; Kreissig, U.; Albella, J. M.;
Ternary BCN compounds can be grown by B4C evaporation and concurrent N2/Ar ion assistance in both hexagonal and cubic structures, depending on the deposition parameters. However, the films are always carbon poor, with a maximum carbon content of approximately 10 at.% in hexagonal BCN, and 5 at.% of C in cubic BCN. In order to increase the carbon content in the films, we have added CH4 to the bombarding gas mixture. In the case of hexagonal structures, the additional carbon atoms are efficiently incorporated to the h-BCN without finding a solubility limit. For the cubic structures, the carbon enrichment induces a disruption of the structure and segregation into h-BCN and BxC domains.

On the bonding structure of hydrogenated carbon nitrides grown by electron cyclotron resonance chemical vapour deposition: towards the synthesis of non-graphitic carbon nitrides
Alonso, F.; Gago, R.; Jiménez, I.; Gómez-Aleixandre, C.; Kreissig, U.; Albella, J. M.;
This work compares the composition and bonding structure of hydrogenated carbon nitride films (CNx:H) obtained by electron cyclotron resonance chemical vapour deposition (ECR-CVD) with those of hydrogen-free carbon nitrides (CNx) obtained by nitrogen ion beam assisted deposition (IBAD) of graphite.The composition and structure of the films was analysed by ion scattering techniques well suited to the detection of hydrogen, in addition to the more conventional infrared spectroscopy.The bonding structure was examined by X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XANES).The typical IBAD CNx films are graphitic with a N/C content below 0.3. However, the ECR-CVD films show a less graphitic bonding structure. The ECR-CVD films were synthesised in a conventional microwave ECR reactor (2.25 GHz, 875 Gauss, 250 W) using as precursor gases N2 and Ar in the reactor chamber, and CH4 directly in the deposition chamber.

Seminar-Vortrag am Institut für Tieftemperaturphysik der TU Dresden (23.05.2002): Gateoxides with embedded Si-nanoclusters for memory applications - preparation by magnetron sputtering, electrical and optical characterization
Schmidt, J. U.;
In silicon-nanocluster (Si-NC) memories, Si-NC embedded in the gate oxide of a MOSFET are used to store and release electrons thereby modifying the threshold of a transistor. This article describes the formation of its core functional structure, the Si-NC MOS memory capacitor, by annealing a SiO2/SiOX (x < 2) stack, deposited onto a thin direct tunneling oxide on silicon by a sputtering method. To achieve a high density of isolated Si-NC, both, the initial silicon excess in the SiOX layer and the thermal annealing treatment must be optimized. Optimum conditions are expected just at the end of the nucleation stage of the NC ensemble. Therefore the effect of various rapid thermal anneals (RTA) on SiOX/Si structures with different silicon excess x was investigated focusing on two optical methods: infrared absorption and photoluminescence (PL). The rate of nucleation and phase separation was found to depend strongly on both, silicon excess and annealing temperature. The characteristic size dependence of Si-NC PL was used to differentiate annealing regimes yielding NC ensembles being 'frozen' in the process of nucleation or in their growth/ripening phase respectively. Additionally, Si-NC MOS memory capacitors were prepared and characterized using both, optical and electrical tests. The devices prepared under optimized conditions yield a high flat-band shift and good charge retention characteristics.

Consequences of Neutron-Proton Pairing Correlations for the Rational Motion of the N=Z Nucleus 72Kr
Kelsall, N. S.; Wadsworth, R.; Wilson, A. N.; Fallon, P.; Macchiavelli, A. O.; Clark, R. M.; Sarantites, D. G.; Seweryniak, D.; Svensson, C. E.; Vincent, S. M.; Frauendorf, S.; Sheikh, J. A.; Ball, G. C.;
High-spin states in the N = Z nucleus 72Kr were populated using
the 40Ca(36Ar,2p2n) reaction at a beam energy of 145 MeV.
The yrast band has been observed up to a tentative spin of 20 h.
Nonyrast rotational structures have also been observed for the first time.
The alignment of g9/2 protons and neutrons in the yrast band is observed to
be significantly delayed relative to the heavier even-even Kr isotopes.
Exact deformed cranked shell model calculations suggest that this could be due to the combined effect
of isovector (T = 1) and isoscalar (T = 0) neutron-proton pairing correlations.

Tritium depth profiling by AMS
Pilz, W.; Friedrich, M.; Bekris, N.; Glugla, M.; Kiisk, M.; Liechtenstein, V.; (Editors)
Tritium depth profiles in carbon have been determined at the Rossendorf AMS facilities during the past seven years. The samples have been cut from tiles of the inner walls of the fusion reactors ASDEX-upgrade Garching, JET Culham and TFTR Princeton. The high tritium content required a dedicated AMS facility to prevent any contamination of the versatile 3 MV Tandetron. It is based on an SF6-insulated 100 kV tandem accelerator equipped with a DLC stripper foil of about 1µg/cm². Depth profiles of deuterium and other light elements can also be measured in SIMS mode or AMS mode depending on concentrations.

Comparison of the scintillation properties of LSO:Ce manufactured by different laboratories and of LGSO:Ce.
Kapusta, M.; Moszynski, M.; Balcerzyk, M.; Braziewicz, J.; Wolski, D.; Pawelke, J.; Klamra, W.;
We measured photoelectron yield, light output, decay times of the light pulses, cerium concentration, energy resolution and time resolution of LSO:Ce manufactured by different laboratories and LGSO:Ce. The LSO samples show excellent scintillation properties: high light output, close to 30,000 ph/MeV and good energy resolution of 7.3% FWHM for 137Cs gamma-source full energy peak. Time resolution measured in geometry fulfilling the PET scanners requirements is equal to 450 ps.
We also present results from the measurements with LGSO:Ce by Hitachi Chemical Co., which is of similar chemical composition to LSO. LGSO, at present stage of development, shows about 20% lower light output than LSO and energy resolution of 12.4% FWHM for 662 keV gamma-rays.
LSO crystals used in our studies posses similar in scintillation properties, although we suppose that the details of the productions method are different due to the differences in Ce concentration. LGSO is a new and very promising scintillator due to lower background radiation in comparison to LSO, but it features worse energy resolution and smaller number of photoelectrons.

Probing Meson Spectral Functions with Double Differential Dilepton Spectra in Heavy-Ion Collisions
Kämpfer, B.; Pavlenko, O. P.;
The double differential dilepton spectrum dN/ (dM2 dM^2)
at fixed transverse mass M^ allows a direct access to the vector meson spectral
functions. Within a fireball model the sensitivity of dN/ (dM2dM^2) against variations of both the in-medium properties of mesons and the dynamics of the fireball is investigated. In contrast to the integrated invariant-mass spectrum dN/dM2, in the spectrum dN/dM2dM^2 with fixed M^ the ω signal is clearly seen as bump riding on the ρ background even in case of strong in-medium modifications.

Evidence for Chiral Symmetry in 136Pm and 138Eu
Hecht, A. A.; Beausang, C. W.; Zyromski, K. E.; Balabanski, D. L.; Barton, C. J.; Caprio, M. A.; Casten, R. F.; Cooper, J. R.; Hartley, D. J.; Krücken, R.; Meyer, D.; Newman, H.; Novak, J. R.; Paul, E. S.; Pietralla, N.; Wolf, A.; Zamfir, N. V.; Jing-Ye, Z.; Dönau, F.;
High-spin states in the doubly odd N=75 nuclei Pm-136 and Eu-138 were populated following the Sn-116(Mg-24,p3n) and Cd-106(Cl-35,2pn) reactions, respectively. A new ΔI = 1 band is reported in Eu-138 and new data are presented for the recently reported band in Pm-136. Polarization and angular correlation measurements have been performed to establish the relative spin and parity assignments for these bands. Both bands have been assigned the same πh11/2νh11/2 structure as the yrast band and are suggested as candidates for chiral twin bands.

Detailed Spectroscopy of the Chiral-Twin Candidate Bands in 136Pm

The chiral-twin candidate bands recently observed in 136Pm have been extended to high spins [I = (21)] using the Gammasphere γ-ray spectrometer and the Microball charged-particle detector array.
A more-detailed spectroscopy of the bands was possible, where the rotational alignments and B(M1)/B(E2) ratios confirm that both sequences have the πh11/2νh11/2 configuration. Particle-rotor calculations of intraband and interband transition
strength ratios of the chiral-twin bands are compared with experimental values for the first time. Good agreement was found between the predicted transition strength ratios and the experimental values, thus supporting the possible chiral nature of the configuration in πh11/2νh11/2

Atomic Clusters as a Branch of Nuclear Physics
Frauendorf, S.; Guet, C.;
The conduction electrons in clusters of simple metal atoms are approximatively i
ndependent and free. Nucleons in nuclei also behave as delocalized
and independent fermions. This generic behavior generates analogies between
metal clusters and nuclei, such as the shell structure, the shapes,
and the dipole vibration mode. However, there are also major differences
that arise from the presence of ions in metal clusters. Fission of nuclei and
clusters, and particle emission from them, reveal these differences.

Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking in Rotating Nuclei
Frauendorf, S.;
The concept of spontaneous symmetry breaking is applied to the rotating mean field of nuclei. The description is based on the tilted-axis cranking model, which takes into account that the rotational axis can take any orientation with respect to the deformed density distribution. The appearance of rotational bands in nuclei is analyzed, focusing on weakly deformed nuclei at high angular moment um. The quantization of the angular momentum of the valence nucleons leads to new phenomena. Magnetic rotation represents the quantized rotation of the anisotropic current distribution in a near pherical nucleus. The restricted amount of angular momentum of the valence particles causes band termination. The discrete symmetries of the mean-field Hamiltonian provide a classification scheme of rotational bands. New symmetries result from the combination of the spatial symmetries of the density distribution with the vector of the angular momentum. The author discusses in detail which symmetries appear for a reflection-symmetric density distribution and how they show up in the properties of the rotational bands. In particular, the consequences of rotation about a nonprincipal axis and of breaking the chiral symmetry are analyzed. Also discussed are which symmetries and band structures appear for non-reflection-symmetric mean fields. The consequences of breaking the symmetry with respect to gauge and isospin rotations are sketched. Some analogies outside nuclear physics are mentioned. The application of symmetry-restoring methods to states with large angular momentum is reviewed.

The halogen effect in the oxidation of intermetallic titanium aluminides
Schütze, M.; Schumacher, G.; Dettenwanger, F.; Hornauer, U.; Richter, E.; Wieser, E.; Möller, W.;
Stoichiometric TiAl and two quasi-technical TiAl alloys were investigated in the temperature range of 800¯1000°C with regard to the halogen microalloying effect on oxidation resistance. The halogens Br, Cl, F and I were introduced into the material surface by ion implantation with different doses and energies before the thermogravimetric oxidation experiments were started. The results show that a very low "homeopathic" amount of these halogens at the oxide scale/metal interface activates a mechanism of selective Al-oxidation which changes oxidation behavior
from fast mixed titania/alumina kinetics to slow pure alumina kinetics. A model is described which explains this change in kinetics supported by quantitative data from thermodynamic calculations. The halogen microalloying effect offers a high potential for the improvement of oxidation resistance of TiAl alloys for technical applications.

Synthesis of epitaxial diamond grains in cubic SiC by high temperature carbon implantation
Pécz, B.; Tóth, L.; Heera, V.; Skorupa, W.;
3C-SiC have been implanted with carbon ions at 60 keV to a dose of 3x10^17 and 1x10^18 cm^-2. All of the implantation experiments were carried out at elevated temperature in the range of 900°C-1200°C to study the phases, which are formed, when excess carbon is introduced into the SiC lattice. At 1100^C and at 1200°C small diamond grains are formed; these are embedded in the SiC and form perfectly oriented crystallites of a few nm size. Diamond is formed in SiC at 900°C as well, however, at high dose rate the impinging carbon ions can destroy the nucleated diamond grains.

Formation of metastable structures in metalls and alloys
Wieser, E.; Noetzel, J.; Peikert, M.; Reuther, H.; Wenzel, C.; Tselev, A. A.;
Formation and transformation of metastable alloys by ion irradiation are discussed on example of the systems Al-Fe, Ta(N), Ta(O), Fe-Cr. By ion beam mixing of Al-Fe multilayers with an overall composition of 60 to 85 at.% Al using 150 keV Fe ions metastable structures were formed. For 80 to 85 at% Al amorphous alloys have been observed. The formation amorphous interface regions cross-beam pulsed laser deposition (CBPLD) is demonstrated. Amorphus thin diffusion barriers of Ta were formed by ion implantation of nitrogen and oxygen. Fe-Cr thin layers with Cr concentration from 27 to 62 at.% Cr prepared by CBPLD show different metastable structures depending on the Cr content. These layers are paramagnetic at rom temperature. By ion irradiation it is possible to transform these alloys into a bcc structure with a ferromagnetion iron rich component.

Formation and decomposition of laser-deposited metastable Fe-Cr phases
Gorbunov, A.; Levin, A. A.; Wieser, E.; Bischoff, L.; Eckert, D.; Mensch, A.; Mertig, M.; Meyer, D. C.; Reuther, H.; Paufler, P.; Pompe, W.;
Contrary to expectations to obtain a continuous series of supersaturated b.c.c. Fe-Cr solid solutions by co-deposition of both metals in cross-beam PLD, there form unusual for this materials system metastable intermetallic phases. The structure of alloys develops from a tetragonally distorted bcc at low Cr-content through a face centered orthorhombic to a partly ordered promitive orthorhombic crystal structure of the A15- like type at nearly equiatomiccomposition. It seems to be the first observation of an ordering of restrictedly soluble components under the bombardment of hyperthermal species in PLD. Intriguing fact is that these metastable phases are initially paramagnetic (PM) at room temperature but become ferromagnetic (FM)after annealing in a temperature range 400-500 C ore under ion bombardment. The induced PM-FM transformation in the alloys is demonstrated to be useful for formation of stable lateral magnetic microstructures.

Laboratory -unit investigations of palladium treated titanium foil for dry scrubber application
Piekoszewski, J.; Chmielewski, A. G.; Licki, J.; Sartowska, B.; Werner, Z.; Barson, S. D.; Skeldon, P.; Thompson, G. E.; Richter, E.; Wieser, E.;
Titanium foil is employed for electron transparent windows in the electron beam dry scrubber process. The foil suffers corrosion, which limits the window life. Here, the examination of palladium-coated window, prepared by ion beam assisted deposition and plasma source ion assisted deposition (PSIAD), after service in a pilot-scale plant is reported. Most significantly, the adhesion of the coating was reduced by the flue gas. Where the coating remained adherent, corrosion was negligible.
