    Kondo Lattice vs. Single Impurity Kondo System

    In order for a dilute magnetic alloy to show the kondo effect (resistance minimum at low T), the magnetic impurites must be far apart and non-interacting. In the Kondo lattice, the magnetic impurities are much closer togeather (one impurity per unit cell), so why does this system show the...

    Falling bodies

    If two objects of equal mass are from h1 and the other fro h2.....will they hit the ground with the same force? Because the only force acting on the objects is gravity so we can say: F=ma and the acceleration is the forces must be the same. Is this...

    Au doped with Fe Spin Glass

    Hello everyone, I am an undergratude student doing to research and I am making dirty Au films. At certian concentrations of Fe (say >.5%) this Au-Fe is showing charateristics of a sping glass. I am attempting to learn what exactly a spin glass is and what its trends look like (resistance vs...

    Determine the electric flux through each of the sides

    A 2.10- mC charge is placed at the center of a cube of sides 6.40 cm. Determine the electric flux through each of the sides. ok so electric flux=E(A) so i figure that the electic flux will be the same for all six sides of the cube so i am just calculating the flux on one side then X6...
