    • Experimental observation of vacancy-assisted martensitic transformation shift in Ni-Fe-Ga alloys 

      Unzueta, Iraultza; Alonso de Robador Lorente, Daniel; Cesari, Eduard; Sánchez-Alarcos Gómez, Vicente Upna; Recarte Callado, Vicente Upna; Pérez de Landazábal Berganzo, José Ignacio Upna; García, José Ángel; Plazaola, Fernando (American Physical Society, 2019)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy is used to experimentally demonstrate the direct relationship between vacancies and the shift of the martensitic transformation temperature in a Ni55Fel7Ga28 alloy. The evolution ...
    • Identification of a Ni-vacancy defect in Ni-Mn-Z (Z = Ga, Sn, In): an experimental and DFT positron-annihilation study 

      Unzueta, Iraultza; Sánchez-Alarcos Gómez, Vicente Upna; Recarte Callado, Vicente Upna; Pérez de Landazábal Berganzo, José Ignacio Upna; Zabala, Nerea; García, José Ángel; Plazaola, Fernando (American Physical Society, 2019)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      By means of experimental positron-annihilation-lifetime measurements and theoretical density functional theory (DFT) positron-lifetime calculations, vacancy-type defects in Ni50Mn50−xSnx (x = 25, 20, 15, 13, 10) and ...
    • Magnetocaloric effect enhancement driven by intrinsic defects in a Ni45Co5Mn35Sn15 alloy 

      Sánchez-Alarcos Gómez, Vicente Upna; López García, Javier Upna; Unzueta, Iraultza; Pérez de Landazábal Berganzo, José Ignacio Upna; Recarte Callado, Vicente Upna; Beato López, Juan Jesús Upna; García, José Ángel; Plazaola, Fernando; Rodríguez Velamazán, José Alberto (Elsevier, 2019)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      The influence of mechanically-induced defects on the magnetostructural properties is analyzed in a Ni-Co-Mn-Sn alloy subjected to soft milling and subsequent annealing treatments. It is found that, opposite to what occurs ...
    • Unlocking the potential of magnetotactic bacteria as magnetic hyperthermia agents 

      Gandía, David; Gandarias, Lucía; Rodrigo, Irati; Robles García, Joshua; Das, Raja; Garayo Urabayen, Eneko Upna; García, José Ángel (Wiley, 2019)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Magnetotactic bacteria are aquatic microorganisms that internally biomineralize chains of magnetic nanoparticles (called magnetosomes) and use them as a compass. Here it is shown that magnetotactic bacteria of the strain ...
