Quantum phenomena in clusters and nanostructures by S. N Khanna( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and German and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Clusters and nanoscale materials give rise to properties and behaviour that are governed by size restrictions, and hence display features directly attributable to quantum confinement. Thus they represent ideal media for observing and studying quantum phenomena. This book presents and evaluates some of the latest developments in this area of basic research. Each of the chapters focuses on selected aspects of the field, and the authors endeavour to display the breadth of the subject by presenting some of the important recent advances that have been made through the use of new experimental techniques and theoretical approaches
Femtochemistry VII : fundamental ultrafast processes in chemistry, physics, and biology : VIIth International Conference on Femtochemistry, Fairmont Washington, Washington, DC, USA, July 17-22, 2005 by A. W Castleman( )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the emergence of femtochemistry seventeen years ago, remarkable progress has been made and femtosecond spectroscopy devoted to Chemistry and Biology has become a well established field of research, giving rise to femtochemistry and femtobiology. The significance of the field is recognized through its impact around the world, giving rise to numerous conferences which includes the most recent conference from the Femtochemistry Conference Series, Femtochemistry VII. This title is made up of contributions made from the Femtochemistry VII conference held in Washington D.C., 17-22 Jul
The Stratospheric aerosol layer by R. C Whitten( Book )

10 editions published in 1982 in English and German and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is now a quarter of a century since Junge and his coworkers recovered the first sample from the sulfate aerosol layer in the stratosphere. Since that time vast strides have been made in determining its physical properties and morphology. These investigations have been performed with instruments on board aircraft and balloon platforms as in the early days, with ground-based lidar (optical radar), and most recently with satellite-borne optical instruments. It will become evident in Chapter 2 that in situ measurements by aircI'aft and, balloon sensors complement rather than duplicate the remote techniques (lidar and satellite). Hence future programs will probably continue to utilize direct as well as indirect experimental techniques. Concurrently, with the observations of the gross properties of the aerosol layer, la~oratory and theoretical studies have sought to elucidate the chemical and micro physical processes which influence the formation and growth of the aerosol par ticles. The laboratory investigations have included studies of gas phase chemistry, and particle nucleation and growth mechanisms. Theoretical studies have revolved mainly around a series of models developed by atmospheric scientists. The earliest of these models was constructed by Junge and his colleagues. With the advent of third- and fourth-generation computers, the capacity to solve the quite complex continuity equations whi~h govern particle formation, growth, and removal has ad vanced to the point where most of the particle properties can be simulated with reasonable confidence

Progress in Ultrafast Intense Laser Science by A. W Castleman( )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The PUILS series presents Progress in Ultrafast Intense Laser Science, a newly emerging interdisciplinary research field spanning atomic and molecular physics, molecular science, and optical science. PUILS has been stimulated by the recent development of ultrafast laser technologies. Each volume contains approximately 15 chapters, authored by researchers at the forefront. Each chapter opens with an overview of the topics to be discussed, so that researchers, who are not experts in the specific topics, as well as graduate students can grasp the importance and attractions of this sub-field of research, and these are followed by reports of cutting-edge discoveries. This fourth volume covers a broad range of topics from this interdisciplinary research field, focusing on strong field ionization of atoms; excitation, ionization and fragmentation of molecules; nonlinear intense optical phenomena and attosecond pulses; and laser - solid interactions and photoemission

Surface and interface analysis : an electrochemist's toolbox by R Holze( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A broad, almost encyclopedic overview of spectroscopic and other analytical techniques useful for investigations of phase boundaries in electrochemistry is presented. The analysis of electrochemical interfaces and interphases on a microscopic, even molecular level, is of central importance for an improved understanding of the structure and dynamics of these phase boundaries. The gained knowledge will be needed for improvements of methods and applications reaching from electro-catalysis, electrochemical energy conversion, biocompatibility of metals, corrosion protection to galvanic surface treatment and finishing. The book provides an overview as complete as possible and enables the reader to choose methods most suitable for tackling his particular task. It is nevertheless compact and does not flood the reader with the details of review papers."--book jacket

Clusters : addressing material and environmental issues by Charles E Jones( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last study presented in this work does not deal with materials, but rather environmental chemistry. In Chapter 5, reactions of formic acid (HCOOH) and protonated water clusters of the form H+(H2O) n (n = 3-27) are examined in a fast-flow reactor under well-defined thermal conditions. The product distributions of H +(H2O)n(HCOOH) m show that nucleation occurs with these clusters on a molecular scale more easily than both pure water and methanol-water clusters do under similar conditions. Calculations are performed using the Thompson liquid drop model to interpret the experimental results. The findings are also in good agreement with recent theoretical work regarding a "cooperative bonding" effect with formic acid molecules and water. The atmospheric implications of this study are briefly discussed. A summary of all the results from this thesis work is presented in Chapter 6
Design and characterization of post-transition, main-group, heteroatomic clusters using mass spectrometry, anion photoelectron spectroscopy and velocity map imaging by Ujjwal Gupta( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The electronic and structural properties of neutral and negatively charged BixIny (x -- 1-4, y = 1-6) clusters are also presented. The experimental and theoretical adiabatic and vertical detachment energies of the anionic species are reported. Among the BixIny series many clusters are found to exhibit a special stability and exhibit a large HOMO-LUMO gap in the range of 0.95 to 1.98 eV. This stability is rationalized by different mechanisms. Bi2In- is classified as a gas phase Zintl species despite only having three atoms, making it the smallest possible case. Bi3In2-, with 12 valence electrons and a closo structure in agreement with Wade's rules, is similar to Bi3Ga2-, a gas phase Zintl analogue of Sn52-. Bi4In- and Bi 4In2 are also identified as gas phase Zintl clusters. BiIn3 is a cyclic planar molecule similar to BiGa3 and BiAl3, all-metal aromatic systems. Additionally, an even odd oscillation of the HOMO-LUMO gap, formation energy and adiabatic electron affinities is found correlating with the open-shell/closed-shell nature of the clusters
