It’s a heavy loss we’ve conceded (at Fulham). We will need for sure a little bit longer than only 30 minutes afterwards to deal with it.”December wasn’t our month, obviously. But for me it’s not possible to think so quickly after the game about the transfer window or the next game. I have to reflect.”It’s very difficult.” last_img read more

Sports EditorThe Ohio State men’s hockey team will look to recover from Sunday’s loss to Michigan against the No. 14 Penn State Nittany Lions when the teams face off in back-to-back matches at the Schottenstein Center over the weekend.The puck is scheduled to drop at 7 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday.The Buckeyes (6-12-2, 1-3-2) and Penn State (15-4-3, 5-1-0) are meeting for the first time this season. Last time out a season ago, the Scarlet and Gray took down Guy Gadowsky’s men by a score of 3-1 in Detroit at Joe Louis Arena, ending Penn State’s season in the Big Ten tournament.Penn State finished off a two-game sweep of Wisconsin last Saturday. Junior forward David Goodwin is likely to keep the Buckeyes’ defense on its toes as he leads the Nittany Lions in points with 21, including 15 assists.Penn State is one of the nation’s leaders in shots on goal with 981, and it is also quite efficient at putting it in the net — the Nittany Lions have 13 players with at least 12 points this season, and each player who has made more than one appearance on the year has at least one point.“Penn State, I mean, you can see what they do. They’re as good as anybody, compete as hard as anybody,” OSU coach Steve Rohlik said. “They’re shooting pucks from the bus and they’re going on the net. We’ve just got to be disciplined, we’ve got to be good defensively and take advantage of our chances.”Magic MasonOSU will be looking for its breakout freshman forward, Mason Jobst, to continue his high-flying performances. Jobst was named the Big Ten’s third star of the week on Tuesday in recognition of his performances last weekend against Michigan.Jobst has a career-high four points in Friday’s encounter in Columbus, and followed it up with three points in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He assisted senior forward Anthony Greco off a faceoff in Game 1 at the Schottenstein Center for the tying goal with 6.7 seconds left in regulation.Even after the breakout weekend, however, the freshman said he already has his mind set on Friday’s match with the Nittany Lions.“(Michigan and Penn State) are totally two different styles,” Jobst said. “A few adjustments have been made in practice but not a whole lot. Just mainly focus on what we’ve got to do and just pay attention to their tendencies and just keep doing what we’ve been doing.”OSU freshman forward Mason Jobst (26) celebrates with the bench in a game against Michigan on Jan. 15 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won in a shootout. Credit: Kevin Stankiewicz | Asst. Sports EditorThe seven points extended Jobst’s point streak to six games, and he has three goals and 11 assists for 14 points in the stretch. He is second among Big Ten rookies with 19 points, from five goals and 14 assists this season, and is seventh in the NCAA among rookies with 1.00 points per game.“He’s always brought that energy this year,” Rohlik said. “Somehow right now he’s finding the back of the net and making some plays. He’s certainly an energy guy, he’s going to continue to bring that, but that’s what the expectations are, and he would tell you that.”“Next man standing”After the final whistle on Sunday at Yost Ice Arena, the bad blood between OSU and Michigan boiled over, and multiple players on both sides were involved in an on-ice clash. On Tuesday, the Big Ten announced a series of suspensions as a result of the altercation.Two freshmen forwards, Dakota Joshua and Brendon Kearney, were issued major penalties and received one-game disqualifications. Joshua received his penalty for facemasking, while Kearney received his for fighting.“Well, we’re going to have a lot of guys step up. Those two guys will be out, Kearney and Dakota,” Rohlik said. “I mean, next man standing, we got to have two more guys step up and be good teammates for us.”The players, such as senior defenseman and co-captain Craig Dalrymple, said they believe whoever on the roster is asked to fill the void will do so to the best of his ability.“Pretty much a ‘next man up’ mentality. Things happen at the end of the game. It was kind of interesting, but to see two guys get suspended, you never like to see that,” Dalrymple said. “Everyone will just step up, and whoever’s name is called to play will play, and we’re excited for Friday.”Joshua scored the shootout-winning goal in Friday’s game against the Wolverines, and the Buckeyes’ first goal in Sunday’s match.Up nextOSU is set to play the second of its three-weekend homestand on Jan. 29 and 30 against Michigan State. The puck is scheduled to drop at 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., respectively, at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Urban Meyer lands his first quarterback recruit as Ohio States coach

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer’s success on the recruiting trail keeps on coming. Quarterback prospect J.T. Barrett, out of Rider High School in Wichita Falls, Texas orally committed Wednesday to play for OSU after he graduates from high school in 2013. During his junior year, Barrett completed 102 of 171 passes for 1,605 yards, as he threw for 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Barrett also contributed 1,521 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground. OSU’s 10th commitment of the class stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 209 pounds. Recruiting website Rivals.com ranked Barrett as a four-star recruit and the No. 134 overall player in the 2013 class. The site also ranked him as the No. 6 dual-threat quarterback. Barrett narrowed his choices down to OSU, LSU, Texas Tech and Nebraska in March before finally committing to OSU. As Meyer’s first quarterback signee, Barrett is expected to compete with 2012 signee Cardale Jones to eventually replace current sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller. Meyer has had his fair share of success at recruiting the quarterback position, signing notable players such as Heisman Trophy winners, Tim Tebow and Cam Newton (transferred to Auburn University) while coaching at the University of Florida. read more

Demonstration of room temperature spin transport in germanium

first_imgCredit: Sergei Dushenko/Osaka University and Masashi Shiraishi/Kyoto University Researchers using germanium instead of silicon for CMOS devices More information: Experimental Demonstration of Room-Temperature Spin Transport in n-Type Germanium Epilayers, Phys. Rev. Lett. 114, 196602 – Published 13 May 2015. journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/ … ysRevLett.114.196602 . On Arxiv: arxiv.org/abs/1501.06691ABSTRACTWe report an experimental demonstration of room-temperature spin transport in n-type Ge epilayers grown on a Si(001) substrate. By utilizing spin pumping under ferromagnetic resonance, which inherently endows a spin battery function for semiconductors connected with a ferromagnet, a pure spin current is generated in the n−Ge at room temperature. The pure spin current is detected by using the inverse spin-Hall effect of either a Pt or Pd electrode on n−Ge. From a theoretical model that includes a geometrical contribution, the spin diffusion length in n−Ge at room temperature is estimated to be 660 nm. Moreover, the spin relaxation time decreases with increasing temperature, in agreement with a recently proposed theory of donor-driven spin relaxation in multivalley semiconductors.

In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, the team describes their technique which could help lead to the development of spintronic devices. Spintronics is the science of searching for and using materials that can sustain a spin-polarized current. The hope is that devices based on spintronics could allow for faster and more efficient computers. Some have even suggested they could play a role in the development of true quantum computers. But for this to happen, materials must be found that can overcome spin–orbit interaction—where fluctuations in magnetic fields present in materials causes scattering, resulting in changes to spin, destroying the possibility of it carrying useful information. In this new effort, the research team describes their analysis of germanium as a possible useful material for spintronics.Prior research has suggested that germanium could carry spin current for a short distance if the material was in a very cold state—to find out if it might work also at room temperature, the researchers doped a layer of germanium with phosphorous (to serve as an electron donor) which grew on a silicon substrate. A spin current was injected (using microwaves) into the germanium via a ferromagnetic strip (which caused the spins to be aligned) placed on one side of the germanium layer. The current moved through the material towards a strip made of metal on the other side of the germanium layer, where it was subsequently detected by a device able to note spin polarization. The team reports that the current moved successfully through the strip, which was 660 nanometers thick, a distance comparable to other materials that are being tested and which is actually larger than the distance between size features in integrated circuits. That means a circuit could conceivably be made with information passing between two or more spintronic devices.The team also noted that cooling a germanium sample down to 130 K doubled the distance the spin current was able to travel before degradation grew to the point of significance.
