"Nearly three hundred women and men attended the three-day conference, which focused on the diversity of today's scientific professions and the challenges of tomorrow's leaders. Speakers shared their personal route to careers in areas such as instrument development, science management, non-profit organizations, and aerospace administration. Topics presented included: best practices for recruiting, promoting, mentoring, and retaining women and minorities; unconscious biases that influence how people are evaluated and demographics within the science field. There was a focus on the senior scientists who mentor and manage the workforce, the mid-career scientists who face the full range of challenges, including balancing home and work, and the early career scientists who represent the future of the field."--Http://1.usa.gov/kyvLMg
Rare gas alkali ionic excimers by Pamela S Millar( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The rare gas alkali ionic molecules are established as a new class of ionic excimers which emit in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) regime of the electromagnetic spectrum. Temporal and spectral characteristics of these species with (XeRb)$\sp{+}$ at 164 nm and (XeCs)$\sp{+}$ at 160 nm have been investigated by soft x-ray excitation in a laser-produced plasma and by high energy pulsed electron beam pumping in this work. Soft x-ray pumping of XeF(B $\to$ X) and (XeRb)$\sp{+}$ yielded the first observation of excimer molecules formed by reactive kinetics in a laser-produced plasma. The spectrum of (XeRb)$\sp{+}$ was observed. The spectral structure could be assigned to 3 dipole allowed transitions originating from the 0$\sp{+}$(II), 1(II), 1(I) upper states ending in the 0$\sp{+}$(I) ground state. A kinetic study of electron beam pumped mixtures of Ar/Xe/Rb and Ar/Xe/Cs was performed. The observed temporal decays of (XeRb)$\sp{+}$ and (XeCs)$\sp{+}$ were analyzed. The results suggest that electron deactivation is surprisingly not a dominant quenching process for rare gas alkali ions. The radiative lifetimes are 150 $\pm$ 50 ns for (XeCs)$\sp+$ and 250 $\pm$ 50 ns for (XeRb)$\sp+$. In addition several quenching rate constants were extracted from the experimental results. These rate constants and lifetimes were incorporated into a kinetic model for these species. This kinetic model reproduced the experimental observations well providing the electron quenching rate coefficient is kept to a maximum of 5 $\times$ 10$\sp{-9}$ cm$\sp3$s$\sp{-1}$. Estimates for the upper state densities were computed using this model to be $\sim$4 $\times$ 10$\sp{15}$ cm$\sp{-3}$ for (XeCs)$\sp+$ and 2 $\times$ 10$\sp{15}$ cm$\sp{-3}$ for (XeRb)$\sp+$. Including absorption due to the photoionization of the alkali atoms, the net gain coefficients are computed to be on the order of 10$\sp{-2}$ cm$\sp{-1}$. Therefore the rare gas alkali ionic excimers appear to be a promising class of candidates as s
