Studies a single molecule linewidth broadening of terrylene in dodecane, tetradecane and hexadecane matrices. Shpolskii bulk absorption spectra; Increase of the bandwidths and site complexity with increasing n-alkane chain length; Suggestion of the existence of relaxing two-level systems coupled to the molecular transitions; Possible origins of the line broadening.

    Estimation of conditions for manifestation of bistability in the resonance curves of the transmission of a layer of active atoms with inhomogeneous broadening has been made. It is shown that hysteresis in the frequency dependence of such a layer is possible only under the conditions of the Stark...

    While in principle the frequency-domain and time-domain spectroscopic measurements should generate identical information for a given molecular system, the inhomogeneous character of surface vibrations in sum-frequency generation vibrational spectroscopy (SFG-VS) studies has only been studied...

    The ferromagnetic resonance linewidth is a result of both intrinsic damping and contributions from inhomogeneities, which in thin films can be dominated by the roughness. Microstructural measurements and magnetization dynamics are reported here for 50-nm films of Permalloy deposited on...

    The spectral stability of three guest molecules embedded in a quickly frozen n-tetradecane matrix has been investigated on a single-molecular level at liquid-helium temperature. In total, about 2500 spectral trajectories of 476 terrylene molecules, 328 dibenzanthanthrene molecules, and 252...

    It is generally thought that the various third-order Raman spectroscopic techniques are equivalent to spontaneous Raman scattering, even when inhomogeneous broadening is present. Experimental observations show that certain of these techniques are complementary in certain cases. We give here the...

    The broadening of x-ray spectral lines has become an established diagnostic of N[sub e] in high-density plasmas, particularly those of interest in inertial confinement fusion (ICF). Work to date has concentrated mostly on the broadening of K-shell lines in moderate Z (Z ∼ 10-20) ions in...
