    • Ab initio investigation of phonon dispersion and anomalies in palladium 

      Stewart, Derek (IOP Publishing Ltd and Deutsch Physikalische Gesellschaft, 2008-04-14)
      In recent years, palladium has proven to be a crucial component for devices ranging from nanotube field effect transistors to advanced hydrogen storage devices. In this work, I examine the phonon dispersion of fcc Pd using ...
    • Magnetism in Coaxial Palladium Nanowires 

      Stewart, Derek (American Institute of Physics, 2007-03-21)
      While bulk palladium is non-magnetic, several recent studies have shown that magnetism can occur in hcp Pd films, fcc twinned Pd nanoparticles, and Pd atomic strands. These studies show that small changes in Pd atomic ...
