TL;DR: An alloying strategy to speed up the crystallization kinetics of scandium-doped antimony telluride is demonstrated, paving the way for the development of cache-type PCRAM technology to boost the working efficiency of computing systems.
Abstract: Operation speed is a key challenge in phase-change random-access memory (PCRAM) technology, especially for achieving subnanosecond high-speed cache memory. Commercialized PCRAM products are limited by the tens of nanoseconds writing speed, originating from the stochastic crystal nucleation during the crystallization of amorphous germanium antimony telluride (Ge2Sb2Te5). Here, we demonstrate an alloying strategy to speed up the crystallization kinetics. The scandium antimony telluride (Sc0.2Sb2Te3) compound that we designed allows a writing speed of only 700 picoseconds without preprogramming in a large conventional PCRAM device. This ultrafast crystallization stems from the reduced stochasticity of nucleation through geometrically matched and robust scandium telluride (ScTe) chemical bonds that stabilize crystal precursors in the amorphous state. Controlling nucleation through alloy design paves the way for the development of cache-type PCRAM technology to boost the working efficiency of computing systems.

TL;DR: A procedure to prepare highly monodisperse copper telluride nanocubes, nanoplates, and nanorods and preliminary analysis of the use of CuTe nanocrystals as cytotoxic and photothermal agents are reported.
Abstract: We report a procedure to prepare highly monodisperse copper telluride nanocubes, nanoplates, and nanorods. The procedure is based on the reaction of a copper salt with trioctylphosphine telluride in the presence of lithium bis(trimethylsilyl)amide and oleylamine. CuTe nanocrystals display a strong near-infrared optical absorption associated with localized surface plasmon resonances. We exploit this plasmon resonance for the design of surface-enhanced Raman scattering sensors for unconventional optical probes. Furthermore, we also report here our preliminary analysis of the use of CuTe nanocrystals as cytotoxic and photothermal agents.

TL;DR: The elastic constants c11, c12 and c44 of U, Np, Pu, and Am telluride single crystals have been obtained by Brillouin scattering from the measured sound velocities in prominent crystallographic directions.
Abstract: The elastic constants c11, c12 and c44 of U, Np, Pu, and Am telluride single crystals have been obtained by Brillouin scattering from the measured sound velocities in prominent crystallographic directions. In case of the U chalcogenides also by ultrasound techniques. The Cauchy pressure, the Poisson ratio, the anisotropy ratio, the bulk modulus and the Debye temperature have been derived from these data. U and Pu telluride have a negative c12, implying intermediate valence. AmTe has a very low bulk modulus, but a positive c12. It is extremely soft, with a very low sound velocity. For AmTe also the LO and TO phonon frequencies could be determined. The elastic data point to a divalent Am state. The optical reflectivity of the light actinide tellurides (and sometimes of all chalcogenides) has been measured between UV and infrared wavelengths, in the case of AmTe down to the far infrared. The plasma edge of the free carriers has been determined, which yields the ratio of n/m*. Together with the γ value of the specific heat and magnetic data a consistent proposal for the electronic structure of the light actinide chalcogenides can be given. Thus, the Pu chalcogenides are intermediate valent and represent the high-pressure phase of the corresponding Sm chalcogenides. AmTe, as judged by the electronic, optic and magnetic properties seems to be in the 5f7 configuration, i.e. divalent Am, but with a narrow, half-filled (24 meV) wide 5f band, about 0.1 eV below the bottom of the 6d conduction band. We thus propose a new kind of unhybridized heavy fermion. Also AmTe seems to represent a high-pressure phase of EuTe.
