1. Does the battle at the line of scrimmage matter? Wisconsin is 11th in the nation and second in the Big Ten for rushing yards, with a rushing average of 241 yards per game. Its offense revolves around reigning Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year John Clay and freshman running back James White. In its last 11 games, Ohio State has rushed for an average of 158 yards, more than its opponents. However, both team’s defenses are good enough to shut down each other’s run game to the extent that OSU quarterback Terrelle Pryor and Wisconsin quarterback Scott Tolzien will be forced to make an impact, giving OSU a considerable advantage in the play-making department. 2. Is the OSU defense ready for Clay? What does matter is Clay’s size. At 6-foot-1-inch, 248 pounds, Clay is a typical plus-sized Wisconsin running back whose strength is bruising between the tackles. The Ohio State defense has not encountered a back with Clay’s size this season. In two career games against OSU, he’s rushed for 128 yards on 30 carries, 4.3 yards per carry, which is less than his average of 5.7 yards per carry. OSU defensive lineman Cameron Heyward is looking forward to the challenge of facing Clay. “He doesn’t even look like a running back, he looks like a linebacker,” Heyward said. But “he’s so explosive. Sometimes the team can be feeling down and he makes one big play and he can turn around the game.” 3. Will Scott Tolzien deliver a repeat “pick-six” performance? Tolzien had a nightmare of a game in last season’s 31-13 OSU victory. Late in the first quarter, Tolzien threw over the middle of the field and was picked off by Kurt Coleman, who returned it 89 yards for a touchdown. It was déjà vu early in the third quarter when Jermale Hines tipped a Tolzien pass to himself along the sideline and took it 32 yards to the house. Although Tolzien has only two interceptions this season, the OSU defense has already forced 17 turnovers through six games. If OSU jumps out to an early lead and renders the Badger running game ineffective, expect defensive coordinator Jim Heacock to dial up the pressure on Tolzien. 4. After weeks of improvement, will the OSU special teams unit collapse in Camp Randall? Last week against Indiana, the longest kick return OSU gave up was 26 yards. Against Illinois, the long was 29 yards. The punt return coverage teams have suffocated opposing returners. This is a marked improvement over the beginning of the season, when the Buckeyes were near the bottom of the nation on special teams. Although the play of the special teams has changed for the better, coach Jim Tressel said there are flaws that still need to be fixed. “Our kickoff coverage team we thought fundamentally got better and the result was good until we were penalized and we had a couple penalties that killed us on the kickoff cover team,” Tressel said. “We’ve got to eliminate penalties from a special teams’ standpoint.” 5. Will OSU need another winning drive from Pryor? The crowning moment of Pryor’s first season took place in his third start. In a back-and-forth game, Pryor took the offense on a 12-play, 80-yard that ended with Pryor scoring on an 11-yard option keeper off the left edge with 1:08 on the clock to give OSU a 20-17 win at Wisconsin. Pryor is not only a dual-threat quarterback, but considered by teammates as one of the unquestioned leaders. read more

Croatia coach We are ready for final match

I did not want to be just an average coach in Croatia. I had to start from the lowest club,” he said. “Within a year in Asia, I became the best coach, and for three years, I was coach of Al Ain [in the United Arab Emirates], who are like Real [Madrid] in Europe.

Graphene origami opens up new spintronics features

first_img The scientists, A. T. Costa, et al., from institutions in Brazil, Ireland, Singapore, and the US, have published their paper on graphene origami in a recent issue of EPL.”While bandgap opening and spin-polarized currents are two separate features contained in the wish list of every graphene researcher, we have identified a way that might tick both boxes at once,” coauthor Mauro Ferreira, Associate Professor at Trinity College Dublin, told Phys.org.Since the bandgap is an energy range where no electron states exist, opening a bandgap in graphene transforms it from a conducting material to a semiconducting material. Semiconducting graphene would be more useful, and could have particularly interesting applications for spintronics devices, which exploit the electron’s quantum mechanical property of spin in addition to its property of electric charge. One reason that graphene is a promising spintronics material is that, compared to other materials, it has an extremely small spin-orbit interaction (SOI). This means that its spin interacts very little with its orbital motion, and so spin dissipation is practically negligible in graphene. As a result, information stored in graphene’s spin can be retained for considerably longer times than in other materials. A small SOI also means that the information can travel over long distances with very little loss.Although a small SOI has many advantages, here the scientists wanted to increase the SOI in parts of graphene because doing so is necessary for opening a bandgap. Recent research has demonstrated that SOI is enhanced when graphene is mechanically bent. Here, the researchers theoretically showed that a 2D graphene sheet molded into periodic ridges and troughs has an enhanced SOI in the curved regions.Increasing the SOI is half of the process to inducing a bandgap; the other half is applying a magnetic field. As the researchers explain, the SOI and magnetic field complement each other in such a way that both quantities must be enhanced to induce a bandgap. The magnitude of the bandgap is ultimately determined by the smaller of these two quantities.One way that a magnetic field can be applied is by doping the graphene with magnetic atoms. Doping is also another way to enhance SOI, so the whole process could potentially be achieved by doping with the right adsorbants. This method has some advantages compared to previous attempts to open up a bandgap in graphene. So far, previous methods have failed to produce technologically relevant semiconducting graphene for several reasons, including that the bandgap size is too small and that disorder emerges into the system. The researchers here predict that the new method may overcome these difficulties and finally achieve useful semiconducting graphene.The second important effect of the new method—that it spin-polarizes the current—means that the electrons’ spins are aligned in the same direction. This feature is particularly important for engineering spintronics devices. In their current study, the researchers showed that the new process can be easily realized by depositing graphene sheets on a substrate with periodic trenches. In the future, they plan to perform measurements on the resulting graphene’s electrical properties. “While we have good experimental control on how the graphene sheets are folded, to measure the transport properties of such origami-like structures remains challenging,” Ferreira said. “The next step is to adapt some of the transport measurement techniques to deal with the structures in this new geometry.” Journal information: Europhysics Letters (EPL) © 2013 Phys.org.

In a new study, scientists have theoretically shown that a bandgap can be opened in graphene by folding 2D graphene sheets origami-style and exposing them to a magnetic field. In addition to opening up a bandgap, this method also produces spin-polarized current in the graphene sheets, making them attractive for spintronics applications.
