Summary of "Extremely Large Magnetic-Field-Effects on the Impedance Response of TiO Quantum Dots."

Here, we report large magnetoresistance and magnetocapacitance response of undoped TiO quantum dots weighting the contribution of both grain and grain boundaries by means of impedance spectroscopy. We also performed a complete characterization of the TiO quantum dots (~5 nm) prepared by sol-gel via water vapor diffusion method, using X-ray diffraction, small angle X-ray scattering, transmission electron microscopy and Raman spectroscopy. In addition, we showed a complete theoretical study on the electronic properties of TiO surface and subsurface oxygen and titanium vacancies to shed some light in their electronic and magnetic properties. Based in our study, we can conclude that the presence of defects, mainly at the grain boundary of these undoped TiO quantum dots, could be responsible for the large positive magnetoresistance (+1200%) and negative magnetocapacitance (-115%) responses at low applied magnetic fields (1.8 kOe) and room temperature.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Objective tests of middle ear function based on the difficulty (impedance) or ease (admittance) of sound flow through the middle ear. These include static impedance and dynamic impedance (i.e., tympanometry and impedance tests in conjunction with intra-aural muscle reflex elicitation). This term is used also for various components of impedance and admittance (e.g., compliance, conductance, reactance, resistance, susceptance).

A type of impedance plethysmography in which bioelectrical impedance is measured between electrodes positioned around the neck and around the lower thorax. It is used principally to calculate stroke volume and cardiac volume, but it is also related to myocardial contractility, thoracic fluid content, and circulation to the extremities.

Recording changes in electrical impedance between electrodes placed on opposite sides of a part of the body, as a measure of volume changes in the path of the current. (Stedman, 25th ed)

Nanometer sized fragments (the dots) of semiconductor crystalline material which emit PHOTONS. The wavelength is based on the quantum confinement size of the dot. They are brighter and more persistent than organic chemical INDICATORS. They can be embedded in MICROBEADS for high throughput ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY.

A technique of measuring the dielectric properties of materials, which vary over a range of frequencies depending on the physical properties of the material. The technique involves measuring, over a range of frequencies, ELECTRICAL IMPEDANCE and phase shift of an electric field as it passes through the material.
